Bus and Coach Services

Shiel Buses is a local family-owned business in the Scottish Highlands celebrating over 40 successful years in business. It was founded in 1978 where the company acquired two buses to run services from Moidart and Ardnamurchan to Fort William.  Over the next 40yrs the fleet and workload steadily grew and Shiel Buses is now one of the most long-standing and successful family-owned businesses in Lochaber.  Today, Shiel Buses run 50 vehicles and employs approximately 80 staff.  

The company prides itself on providing services to the outlying communities in the family’s homeland, as well as town service to Fort William and its locality.  An abundance of touring work is undertaken in the summer months and Shiel Buses can be seen all over the UK providing luxury transport for outings, day trips, cruise ship excursions as well as extended tours for domestic and international travel companies and private groups.  Since 2014 Shiel Buses have had a close working relationship with Scottish Citylink and provide vehicles for their services between Glasgow and the Isle of Skye, and Fort William and Inverness.
