We do have a car
Head up the A82 past Loch Lomond and through Glencoe towards Ft William, normally I would suggest to take in Skye but you might be limited in time, it depends how early you start on day one and how late you can arrive in Edinburgh on the final day.
Come back down again via the A9 joining it around Pitlochry, it then turns into the M9 and down to Edinburgh, good circular route letting you see some varied scenery.
Use a route planner like www.theaa.co.uk
Thanks, yes we can start early and arrive late at Edinburgh
Where do you suggest to stay for the 2 nights?
I think madscotsman is suggesting you might stay in the Fort William area, then continue via Spean Bridge, turning towards Dalwhinnie and the A9 the next day.
My preference if you only have two days might be the A82, turning left at Tarbet and taking the road to Lochgilphead and Oban, continuing up to Glencoe before heading inland towards Stirling the Edinburgh
I don't think there's much in it regarding mileage, but I think there are more possibilities regarding places to stop and visit.
I think we'd need to know a lot more about your likes and dislikes before we can provide good advice - all I'm doing is saying what I would prefer, but we're all different.

We love scenery of the highlands, which to do a good 4 hour walk, country side, a quick visit and, may come back with more time one day.Edited: 16 August 2014, 15:28
I would follow the advice regards taking the road from Lochgilphead to Oban. There's a lot of road works and traffic lights on the Ardlui stretch around the loch and they really slow that section down.
Good suggestions above.Just to cover something different and on the basis that 2 nights means 3 days,you could head up the A9 and make for Torridon,about 4.5hours from Glasgow,tons to see on the way and back too.Dunkeld, Pitlochry,Blair Castle,Stirling Castle,Culloden.
Then spend most of your time in one of Scotland's most spectacular areas.B & Bs and posh hotel available in Torridon or look at Shieldaig.Lovely villages, superb coastal and mountain scenery.Then head back the way you came given your timescale.Torridon is a walkers paradise...high and low level options abound in grand surroundings.
