Last 2 days in Scotland

On our last 2-1/2 days in Scotland (having done the Borders, Edinburgh and the Northwest) we will be coming down from Loch Torridon area with two nights left. We will not yet have seen Stirling area nor Perthshire. Not sure which to pick or whether we should do two separate nights or stay in one hotel and base for the extra day?
Would someone recommend driving distances and options for overnight? I am a little gun shy of biting off too much driving or booking a hotel and missing something.
The forums on Scotland have been so great. Thank you to all who have posted.

I'd stay someplace like Dunkeld or maybe Crieff for both nights and use it as a base for all of it -- Perth, Loch Tay, Ben Lawers, Loch Earn, Drummond Castle etc. And then you can hit Stirling on your last day enroute to EDI or GLA or wherever you are headed afterwards.

Thank you. Any suggestions of hotels or B&B's that are a favorite?

The Ardeonaig Hotel on the shores of Loch Tay is fabulous. It has some of the best food and wine in Scotland, but it is pricey. If you have a chance, the Crannog Centre near Kenmore is worth a visit. For Dunkeld maybe the Atholl Arms or The Pend B&B. Sorry haven't been to Crieff. Callender might be another option. I'm sure janisj will have some good suggestions too.

It would help if you could give us a price range.

Since it is our last nights, well we might be broke by then but I will say 3 or 4 star. Thank you for your help

Sorry star ratings are not much use in Scotland; a price point is what's needed. You might try the Bridge B&B in Dunkeld, less expensive than The Pend.
