I was checking my CalMac updates this morning and realized that because the MV Coruisk is now working the Oban-Craignure route, they've eliminated some of the ferries between Mallaig and Armadale. So my 3 pm booking is now gone, and is at 4 pm. Not a huge disaster but still inconvenient. I'm taking the 9:30 am ferry from Tobermory to Kilchoan and don't think I will be able to get to Mallaig by the earlier time slot. Since it's Sunday, there are only 4 ferries that day - 9:30, 11:30, 16:00 and 18:00.
I could try for the 11:30 am booking but not knowing what the roads are like between Kilchoan and Mallaig, I'm hesitant to even consider trying for that. Google says it would take 1 hr and 37 minutes but I haven't made Google's time yet, so I'm thinking more like 2 hours, depending on the roads. Does that sound about right?
Or maybe I should just take my time and enjoy the scenery. Any suggestions for places to stop along the way?
