Due to higher numbers of visitors travelling to Rathlin than normal for this time of year there will be a bus trip around the island today at 11.15am. The driver will meet the 10.30 sailing when it arrives in Rathlin so if you would like to do the bus tour then you should do so then as there will be no others later in the day. The bus tour costs Β£5 for adults Β£3 for children and infants travel free. Payment is made to the driver in cash only. Enjoy your trip!
