Ok, slightly serious question, as I daresay it's an oxymoron, but what's rush hour traffic like on Skye? I'm staying in Portree and the only time I *need* to be somewhere is the Uig pier at 0855 next Tuesday. It's about 16 miles according to gmaps, so I'm thinking leaving at 0830 would be more than enough time. I can't be late though, so maybe 0815? 0800?
Related, how officious are CalMac about checking in for boat trips? It says latest check in is 0855 for boat at 0940, are they stringent about that, generally?
