Scotland - Some insight needed please

Jump to last reply

We are four people traveling to Scotland for 7 nights second week of September. We are able to add one day if absolutely necessary. First timers in Scotland and really excited about it......
Our arrival point is Glasgow and we will spend 2 days there exploring the city and Edinburgh. We will be renting a car to tour the West coast and Highlands.

Our focus is on scenic drives, castles and we would like to stay in villages rather than towns.

Our initial thought was to drive to Oban area - see some sights on the way and overnight there.
Second overnight in the area of Loch Ness and then make our way back to Glasgow through the Trossachs and overnight in that area as well.
Which is the best way to split up our 5 days in this region? 2 Days Orban, 2 Days Highlands, 1 Day Trossachs??

Our other option is to find a base for 5 nights in the centre of the area and do day trips to the various points of interest. This appeals hugely as it is convenient not to pack up, but don't know if getting to points of interest and back to base is doable in one day.

Please help with suggestions of places for overnight stops and comment on our 2 options will be very welcome.
