I could be tempted to ride the opposite route. Inland via Altnaharra would be s preference. We drove home that way and it was very rural, although not the best road surface.
I may not be able to convince the designated driver to do it again so might have to camp.

I’d be up for this - hopefully it’s after my daughter has finished at Epsom (which prevented me doing Lejog with you all).
