I do need some help here?
In the next two weeks iam off to sunny Scotland for a couple of days, don’t know where iam going up there yet! That’s were you guys come in: D
I am hoping that some one will tell me where’s the best places to go, for landscape Photography as most of you know I love my landscape, so please help me on where to go! This for me is very hard on where to go for the most beautiful landscapes are I know that Scotland is full of them that’s what’s making it hard.
Oh the landscapes have got to been well out of the way from any people at all.

You could go to Oban and from there get the ferry to Mull.

That should just about be enough for two days!
Best regards, John

So many places, so little time. Almost anywhere alone the rout to Fort William or Oban is excellent. Never been to the other side of Scotland though.

Take your WR lenses and a good coat.
Midge spray (strong).

Apparently the Kyle of Lochalsh is nice!!! There's a lovely castle there ..... what's it called? .....
Lurking is shirking.!

Take the 'Road to the Isles' to Mallaig with either spectacular scenery all the way or horizontal rain that is like being stabbed in the face by a fork, then ferry to Skye. Stay at the Kinloch Lodge Hotel, one of the best in Scotalnd, and come back over the Skye bridge to the mainland

Two days aint enough. but I agree with Beginner, Isle of Skye or Glen Coe/Rannock Moor area, you wont have time to do both properly.

Currently 57 years and haven't even started on the landscapes yet.

Don't forget, Scotland is around 3/8 of this island and a lot of it is wild and remote and can be spectacular. Rather depends on the weather.
If you have only two days, you will take most of them driving to and from the highlands. There is lots in southern Scotland as well, although I must admit I am usually just on my way to the hills.
