THE VEHICLES

The Circle and its members own around a dozen preserved vehicles. Most are owned individually or by small groups of members, with a small number being owned by the Circle itself. The oldest vehicle dates from 1949, and the youngest from 1967.

As in the MacBrayne fleet itself in its later years, most of the vehicles are Bedfords or AECs, but the Thornycroft and Maudslay marques are also represented.

The following vehicles are owned by the MacBrayne Circle or its members, and The MacBrayne Circle North of Scotland Group.
All are original MacBraynes vehicles with the exception of BJX 848C which will be restored as 373FGB.
