Best Scentic drive???

Howdy folks. We will be visting soon and have all plans in place!!  But a couple of questions still remain.  Could anyone offer their advice or opinions of the very best scenic driving routes for these streches>>>>Saint Andrews to Stirling>>>>>>Stirling to Glencoe>>>>>Glencoe to Oban.  We've spent a bit of time on viamichelin, google maps, etc, but they offer 2 or 3 options that tend to be highway.  We are really hoping to plan for the finest scenic - - off the highways driving road trip!!  Any help from this community would be delightful!!  Thanks.  Diana

    Hey @DianainRI, I've had a wee look and can see that for St. Andrews to Stirling, the most scenic route would be this one.  Going through Dundee and Perth, alongside the River Tay.

    For Stirling to Glencoe, I'd recommend this route.  This looks like the most scenic option, taking you up past a couple of Lochs and through some lovely villages along the way.

    For the final leg of the trip from Glencoe to Oban there is only one route (according to Google Maps) but it takes you along the west coast, which will be a great sight.  Here's a link to the route.

    Let me know if this helps, and have a wonderful trip!
