Bus in Skye from/to Armadale to Portree

I will be visiting Skye in late September.
We want to take the bus from the ferry at Armadale to Portree and back
The bus website is very confusing.
In one place it says it does NOT run Saturdays and Sundays.
In another it says it runs every two hours.
Hard to plan not knowing schedules.
Thank you for your help.

    @floridabill53 Could you confirm that you need that bus on a saturday / sunday? I would be so surprised if that bus ran on a Sunday. It is also important to ask when you wish to take that bus as summer timetables kick in around May 25 I believe. Also, as the weekend are not school days, a bus every 2 hours sounds super-optimistic.

    Here's the winter timetable I would strongly recommend getting off the train at Fort William and catch the Citylink bus to Portree from there to minimize any potential issues (those run during the weekend, may have lighter service).
