Here’s a snapshot for scenery and good, fast, relatively empty roads (but watch out for plod and cameras as NO leniency is shown to sassenachs!):-

Leave M74 at Beattock and visit Moffat for refreshments. A701 to Edinburgh. Round bypass and over new Queensferry bridge then M90 to Perth. 
A85 thro’ Crieff to A82 at Tyndrum, then down thro’ Glencoe to Fort William. 

A82 to Inverness or the smaller roads on the south of Loch Ness. 
East to Elgin then south through Speyside on A95 to join A9 at Aviemore. 
Visit Pitlochry. 
Visit Stirling. 
Then if you’re heading back ‘down south’ on the A1 visit the Jim Clark museum at Duns, west of Berwick. 

Lots of smaller-road diversions to scenic places off this route if you have time!

Cheers Phil

given I am with my young daughter I need to think of something to do beside her wanting to spot Nessie ! 
I was thinking of going on a cable car somewhere near Ben Nevis but besides that not sure what else is can I do ? 
I also only have a couple of days in the area before heading home
