A quick report to make you aware of the possibility of doing the Ben Lawers ridge with just one car.

Me and my wife had decided to tackle all of the Ben Lawers range in 3 days. Our intention climb An Stuc, Beinn Ghlas, Ben Lawers, Meall Garbh, Meall Greigh in one day however from reading various reports we found that ideally you would need 2 cars as the start and finish points were different. We managed to get round this by utilising the Ring of Breadalbane Explorer Bus which runs Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays until 20th October (http://www.breadalbane.org/ring-of-breadalbane-explorer). We managed to park the car at Ben Lawers Hotel and then upon reaching the NTS carpark follow the road down to the main road and catching the bus from there. Luckily for us the timing was perfect and we were back at our car in no time. There are many campsites at the bottom of the NTS carpark road, one of which we were staying in, therefore the bus could have be used to begin with to get us to Lawers village and then it would just be a walk back down the road from the NTS carpark to our campsite. I hope this helps anyone who may want to bag these Munro's but faces the 1 car dilemma.
