The Historical coach tours project is implemented through The Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership Scheme. The LPS is part of the Heritage Lottery Fund’s programme to conserve and enhance some of the region’s most treasured landscapes. The LPS runs from September 2015 until August 2018.
The total budget for this project is £7,640
The aim of this project is to raise the awareness of the area’s rich heritage and provide an opportunity for a new business to emerge. The project can also act as a training tool for new tour guides. This project will deliver on these aims by:
1. Providing a fully guided coach tour on eight days each year during the lifetime of the LPS
2. Providing each passenger with a brochure
3. Training one new tour guide per year to guide coaches.
