Option 1, park at Cluanie cycle to lay-by at finish and do in reverse. Pros on doing it this way are that cycling will be mostly downhill, finish at Cluanie and drive to pick up bikes. Are there any negative about doing it in reverse.
Option 2, park in lay-by at finish and cycle back to Cluanie although mostly uphill so don't really fancy this option.
Option 3, park at Cluanie, climb from there and catch bus, cadge a lift back. Does anybody know the bus times or are they a bit erratic
Any help, opinions would be much appreciated.

The bus is expensive though, make sure you take enough money. it was £7.50 each when we tried it and we only had a tenner so we had to get off and find a plan b

Did option 1 last year, locked bike up on bridge, and then mostly downhill to lay-by. I say mostly as you do have a couple of climbs early in cycle. I seem to recall my gps picking up impressive speeds recorded due to downhills
I had done the brothers the day before so was feeling it on legs, if you have long drive home remember and get a good stretch before setting off, took me 20 mins to get out of the car when I got home, legs kept cramping.
