We are planning to travel from Mallaig to Kyle of Lochalsh on Friday 30th August. The ferry arrives Armadale at 1425 and the Stagecoach 51 is shown to depart at 1430. I am presuming (hoping!) this is a meant to be a connection but would like some reassurance! If the ferry is late will the bus wait? How punctual is the ferry normally? Is 5 minutes enough to get off the ferry and get to the bus stop?
Also, are there ever any capacity issues with the ferry? We arrive Mallaig on the Jacobite so have some time to spare before the ferry departs but I wondered if it ever gets closed to foot passengers as you can't book these tickets online?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
