"Kaaren" in Sutherland


C194 CYO - "Kaaren" - 1986 Volvo B9M fitted with 28 de-luxe Vogel reclining seats (instead of 45 standard ones) and offering increased legroom. Full air suspension.


Bought new specially by Glenton Tours of London to operate their new 'Classique Tours'! We were very flattered that the then leading sizeable quality tour operator should want to use our name, but we objected and - unfortunately - Glentons ceased trading shortly afterwards. The coach retains its Glenton Tours livery, mainly as a tribute to Maurice Saxton, the founder of the company.


This powerful coach is an ideal size for the narrow roads we use and for steep gradients - whilst offering effortless cruising.
