I did it a couple of years ago, late November if i remember right. We followed the Road to Isles then headed up the nose of Carn Dearg's south ridge, across to Sgor Gaibhre and back out over Beinn Pharlagain. We were 10 hours and came off Pharlagain as it was getting dark, though we had deep snow to contend with for much of the way. You could probably knock 2 hours off that time in frosty, snowless conditions. The walk in/out is about 3 miles on a good track - you could save a lot of time with a bike.

I know you were trying to avoid the train but Its worth considering getting the early train from rannoch and walking back over the hills.
