Two of the smallest depots in Scotland - Girvan and Jedburgh - closed
during the summer. They join other small depots that no
longer exist, such as Newburgh (Fife), Pitlochry (Midland) and Nairn
(Highland). Below is a sample of some of Scotland's smallest
|The long hot summer of 1976 - even in
Scotland. Northern Alexander/Fords NT18/19
(SRS518/19K) at Buckie depot in July of that year.
Buckie still has a depot, but on a new site.
||Jedburgh depot closed due to losing its
routes following tendering. Eastern Scottish ZC465L
(BFS465L), an Alexander/Bedford, is seen in Edinburgh returning to
base in October 1976.
|Highland owned many small depots by the
nature of its geography. Their D928 (SMS128P), a well
travelled Alexander/Fleetline, is seen at Tain depot in July 1990.
There is still a depot in Tain.
||Girvan was strictly a sub-depot of Ayr,
but had its own allocation of ten vehicles. A Stagecoach
Western Scottish Dart is seen on the last week of operation in August
