Ferry to Armadale and Mallaig
If you're coming from the south (eg via the A830), this crossing can be a pleasant way to get to Skye. Otherwise you have to make a long detour to the bridge near Kyle of Lochalsh.
The CalMac ferry takes you from Mallaig to Armadale (or vice versa) in about 30 minutes.
- Check-in is 20 minutes prior to departure for vehicles and 10 minutes for foot passengers.
Tickets and Booking
Ferry tickets on this route can be booked through Caledonian Macbrayne Ferries. When the ferries depart and what the routes are, very much depends on the season and the crowds. In quieter periods the ferries sometimes make a stopover. The exact itineraries can be found on the CalMac website. Summer timetables will come into effect after March 30th.
