This April, we'll be arriving in FW via sleeper about 9:30 am. and planning on doing the scenic ride from FW to Mallaig. Seems there are 2 trains to Mallaig we could take... the 12:10 or the 16:28. From there we catch the ferry to Skye.
If we hired a taxi to take us around Glencoe, would we have any time to see anything if we had to be back for the 12:10 train?
If we took the late afternoon train to Mallaig so we could have more time in Glencoe, would there be any disadvantage there? Does the fog come rolling in at that time or anything? (although I sure that can happen anytime anywhere in Scotland)
My only real worry is that I believe the 16:48 is the last train to Mallaig with the last ferry to Armadale. Wouldn't want to miss it for sure! We'd be getting on Skye at 18:30 (6:30 pm) then we'll need to catch a bus to Portree. I think we'd still get there before dark, as it stay light out till 8pm?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
