I'm from the Netherlands and planning a trip to Scotland. There is a lot of information on the internet about some great tracks in Scotland, but it's hard to find the right one. Maybe you can help me?
I would like to hike 3 days (50 - 60 km, 40 miles) in Scotland, seeing both mountains and lakes. I would like to stay in small hotels/hostels/b&b etc.
I would like to hear your recommendations en tips!

If you have a car, staying in the Glencoe / Kinlochleven area gives you a vast choice of walks and scenery, as well as a lot of different accommodation options.
If you are on public transport, then you can get to that area by bus, but it might take up valuable holiday time. Pitlochry, however, has a rail station, a variety of accommodation, and fine mountain, lake and forest scenery. It is not so dramatic as the Glencoe area but sometimes has better weather.
Many walks in both these areas are described in detail on this website.
Good luck, I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

I remember, as a little girl (many moons ago) seeing the loch from the exact same position where it looks like part of a map of Scotland, and I’ve wanted to take my daughter to see it, but just could not remember the name or location.
In case Caberfeidh doesn’t see this, I ‘ll take the liberty of letting you know - it is Loch Garry, seen from the A87 between Invergarry and Cluanie Inn.
