Highland Omnibuses AL37, AAG112B, an Albion Lowlander LR7 with Alexander H40/29F bodywork new to Western SMT in 1964 as their 1919. It was acquired by Highland in 1971.
It is seen at Kessock Ferry (South Kessock) about to depart for St Valery Avenue on an Inverness town service.
The hills of the Black Isle are visible in the background. Since 1982 the Black Isle has been reached by the Kessock Bridge situated slightly east of the ferry slipways. It carries the A9 over the Beauly Firth and the ferry is no more although a bus service operated these days by Stagecoach still runs to South Kessock to serve the houses behind the photographer. The old ferry office building (beside the bus) remains but now buses turn at a proper roundabout from where the view over the firth is quite spectacular.
