This will involve the 51 service for Kyle-Armadale Mon-Fri and the 52 service Portree-Broadford-Armadale Mon-Sun. These schedules are subject to approval by the Traffic Commissioners.
A brief summary of the changes is as follows:
•Customers will be able to travel the Grand Tour - Inverness - Fort William - Mallaig - Armadale - Kyle - inverness - [Fort William]
•Slightly reduced Saturday service, the buses that remain were the ones that were well used.
•New Portree - Kyle service introduced to provide links with Inverness trains and facilitate the Grand Tour
•Kyle - Armadale service revised to provide buses with more useful connections
•The evening trips have a reduced period of operation to reflect the dismal use being made early and late season.
•During the Summer school holidays buses which cannot be provided during school term because of school hours closures.
•Stagecoach will reintroduce the Summer Sunday service from Portree to the North End.
Stagecoach will also be introducing the service pictured above from 15 May until the Summer timetable is introduced subject to the Traffic Commissioners approval.
This will allow Sleat residents to travel morning or afternoon to Broadford and Portree.
