On the question of hills, and I know its a fair trot from your patch, but there are a number of spectacular ones in Assynt, don't be put off by their lack of munro status, they punch above weight in terms of grandeur

It's probably a longish drive, but you will be driving through inspiring country....
Good luck, and whichever ones you do, be sure to write a report
It's also a fine reason to visit the Applecross Inn

Another lovely hill to consider is Ben A'an, only 450m but has a proper hill aspect and the views from the top are stupendous (Loch Katrine, Ben Venue, Ben Lui, etc etc). However, once out of the woodlands, it is a wee bit steep and rocky, but it's short of a scramble, so I don't know how you'd cope with that.
All the hills in the Ben Lawers group start from about 400m, so you could aim for Meall nan Tarmachan and just come back down. If you still have energy, walk along the ridge to the next top and you can come off there.

Beinn na Lap - If you fancy the train ride to Corrour, tThere's certainly a good track to the foot, and it's often used as a charity walk, so should be OK.
Ben Chonzie has a good track up to firm ground, and also straightforward.

As someone said earlier, the hills are for everyone. Get out and enjoy them. Write up a trip report too, you may inspire other people to challenge themselves too.
