From Glasgow, take the A82 along the shores of Loch Lomond, over Rannoch Moor and through Glen Coe to Fort William. Stay on the A82 north to Invergarry and then via the A87 and A890. From Fort William onwards, you will pass several well-known landmarks on the way - the Commando Monument at Spean Bridge, Cluanie Inn, the Five Sisters of Kintail, and Eilean Donan Castle.
Or, take the A9 north from Perth to just north of Inverness, then via the A835 to Garve, the A832 to Achnasheen, and finally the A890. This route is further but often faster and has several good stopping-off points along the way – Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Aviemore or Inverness, for example.
