We used B&Bs all the way up, my blog & diary is at https://through-the-lens.exposure.co/la ... h-the-lens
An alternative to Crask Inn is Altnaharra B&B (downhill all the way from Crask) - owners are lovely and well used to wet, muddy cyclists.
If you're heading through Moffat, Queensberry House B&B is recommended, a really nice B&B with a wonderful welcome - won't forget the welcome of a laundry basket for all our damp clothes and fresh laundry waiting for us in the morning!

Have a great trip.

Another vote for the Crask Inn, almost mid way between Inverness and JoG.
I did the Cicerone and have to say Moffat is full of good guest houses too.
Just prepare to face bigger breakfasts as you travel north!

+1 for Queensbury, we had a similar experience.

Difficult to find a meal after 8pm in Moffat we had to persuade local Italian to keep kitchen open till 8:30! In smaller towns in Scotland we had to make do with takeaways or Co-ops at this time of night.
