A family run business...

R. Robertson & Son was founded in 1947 as a garage and transport operator serving the island of Yell. As a family run business, the focus was always on serving the local community.

What Our Customers Say

We had an excellent day out, the driver was very helpful in loading the coach and also allowing us extra time at the end of the day, we would highly recommend Robertsons and look forward to using your services again. Keirynn - 21st Birthday Bus
