long stay car parking Mallaig

Hello, my wife and I want to cycle  the Hebrides and mainland west coast Scotland during the summer of 2018.  We want to get the ferry from Mallaig to Lochboisdale.  We are not sure about long stay car parking In Mallaig as we estimate we may be travelling for 10-14 days.

Where can we find definitive information please?

    Hi @andrewjoseph, I've had a wee dig and have found that you can park your car for long stay near the railway station.  It is free and safe as many of the locals use the same car park for the same reasons.  If you want to read up, you can have a look here, which is where I got my info from.

    Hope this helps and have a great trip!

    Apparently the traffic wardens in Mallaig disappeared (not suspiciously) :D several years ago now so you should find free parking in town no bother.
