Most scenic route Glasgow to Mull suggestions?

We are starting to plan our trip to parts of Scotland. We are thinking of arriving by train into Glasgow (from London), collecting a car and driving out of Glasgow to Tobermorey on Isle of Mull. (we will visit Glasgow later on the trip). I am keen to visit the Macintosh house at Helensburgh, so would like to do this en route to Mull. We are happy to stay overnight en route to Mull, so that we can see the scenery on the way to Mull. I would appreciate suggested routes and a town, village or area to overnight, as checking on Google maps indicates it is a long drive from Glasgow to Mull. Given we will have come by train that day, visited Helensburgh, I thought an intermediate overnight stop prior to Mull might make sense. I welcome comments and suggestions on this draft plan.

The most scenic route by some margin is through Callander through Glencoe and either a stop off in Fort William or straight across the Corran ferry. This is the way we went this year and while not at all quickest is the prettiest.

No 11's route is indeed very scenic, but it is also quite a detour, and would not help you to maximise your time on Mull.

Not sure I agree about the scenic grandeur of Fort WIlliam itself, tho I admit Glencoe is a winner.

Given we're discussing how to get to Mull and don't know about the shape of the later part of your trip, it may be perfectly viable to see Glencoe etc later. There are a couple of ways of getting there from Oban.
