I’d look into this. Some of it is quite easy, other parts a bit more challenging. http://www.fifecoastalpath.co.uk/
We found a wonderful cottage through Ecosse Unique. It was very reasonable and the owners were lovely! We stayed in Aberfeldy (hence my screen name) and loved it. Central location in the highlands — easy to get to lots of places. Very historic and picturesque!
Aberefeldy does have nice cottages. Throughout the Grampian mountains you’ll find hiking that’s not too challenging, as well as throughout the Trossachs. The most picturesque areas are north of Glasgow and Edinbourgh, along with the coastlines. The islands each seem to have their own personality.

The website looks a little old, but don’t let that put you off! We had an amazing time. If you can spare the ££ I’d recommend the gorgeous Waterfall Lodge; we got bumped up there so got it for cheap and it was absolutely amazing! There are great walks around there and more within driving distance. :) xx
Ben Nevis is the highest peak in Scotland, but it is not a difficult hike. The challenge isn’t the hike, it’s the weather. It can get very windy and cold and rainy, then the sun will peak out once in awhile. Be prepared for those extremes!
The area to the west of Loch Lynne reached either by the Corran ferry north of Ballachulish or from Fort William is very picturesque and its mountains are not difficult.
There are excellent walks from Dundonnel on Little Loch Broom or from near Ullapool but the An Teallach traverse is a hard scramble.
Skye is superb. You should not think of doing the Coulin Ridge but the walk from Sligachan across towards Loch Coruisk is OK for anybody and gives a dramatic view of the Loch which is possibly the most exciting in the UK. The walk from almost the same place up Bruach na Frithe, a point on the ridge is easy enough but come back the same way.
Further north in Skye there are good and manageable walks on the Trotternish peninsula.
