To mark the launch, FlixBus will also be unveiling a specially-designed coach, decorated with the Saltire and other iconic landmarks such as the Glenfinnan Viaduct and Ben Nevis.

Eco-friendly FlixBus will be operated by Scotland’s largest independent bus company, McGill’s, which recently launched a daily summer service between London, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
