Speaking of the hydro track route into Ben Dronaig Lodge (bothy) from Attadale Gardens, I had been warned by people who had been along it a couple of years ago, that it was very rough and would be very difficult to cycle - and certainly not enjoyable. So, we walked it (June 2022, 3 hours steady) and I think the track must have been upgraded because it was perfectly cycle-able. True, there are some steep sections which are rough, but if you accept that there are stretches where you would be pushing, it would still be well worth taking a bike. There were no locked gates or dodgy bridges.
By the way, although there will likely be wood at the bothy, it is stored in a shed which is not that dry, so it's likely to be wet. There's plenty of dead brash on the way in, if you can carry it.
