D&E Coaches was established in 1996 and has grown from a small family minicoach business into the one of the most successful coach operators in the Highlands of Scotland.
We have shown that providing a quality service, attention to detail and an awareness of our clients’ requirements are key to continued customer satisfaction. This has ensured that our clients continue to support us and our growing reputation for quality and reliability generates new business to further build the success story.


The Company operates from its new premises in Inverness which were completed in 2006 and which has modern offices and a fully equipped workshop compatible with the demands of today’s ‘green environment’.
The safety of our customers is very important therefore the inspection and maintenance schedule which we operate ensures that our customers always travel in well maintained vehicles driven by uniformed, knowledgeable and pleasant drivers.
The day-to-day running of the business is monitored by the owner Donald Mathieson, with over 34 years experience in the coach industry and who’s enthusiasm and expertise has seen the business grow from humble beginnings with a handful of vehicles in rented premises to a fleet of over 50 vehicles and 65 staff in a new, modern building. The operations team has a wealth of experience in ensuring that our customer’s requirements are fulfilled to their expectations, in comfort and safety.
