My mother and her sister are visiting from Oz in February and are really keen to see the Isle of Skye. I;ve been once before but it was in summer. If we catch the train up to Mallaig, and the ferry across, how do you suggest we proceed with transport? I was thinking of hiring a car but I'm nervous about driving if the roads are going to be icy or covered in snow. If we don't hire a car, is there any other frequent and reliable transport we could use to get around?????
Here's a pretty good pdf bus timetable of skye. Page 14 is a map of the island showing bus routes.
It looks like the island is well covered, and you should be able to get around just fine.
have a great time and visit Raasay too if you can.
