Questions about car-free trip to Glencoe area

Hola y'all, 

This is José, London-based reporter who’ll be visiting Scotland with my partner in late May this year.

So far we’ve booked hotel stays in Glasgow and in/around the Loch Lomond area but we’re unsure as to where to go next. Neither of us drives so it has to be somewhere accessible by public transport. 

Our idea was to spend the following five days between Glencoe (three days) and Oban/Isle of Mull (two days). Public transport to get to Glencoe itself seemed easy, given the Citylink services, but we now hear that getting to the famous hikes (The Lost Valley and so forth) requires a car/taxi. I had a few questions…

1) Do you think getting to the key Glencoe highlights is manageable without a car?

2) Or would you suggest going somewhere else in the same area that is a bit more accessible and if so where?

3) Could you recommend any operators offering one-, two-day tours starting and finishing at Glencoe itself?

Thanks in advance :)
