There's no end of what to see, but here's some things that are not whisky distilleries or castles, Scotland has a lot of natural wonders

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_Mare%27s_Tail not just the waterfall, but walk to the top and when you get there the glacial corrie loch appears it's like you've just arrived on a harry potter CGI set.

Thanks Baloo for your work to show me routes and visits.
In fact it will be one week, I'll arrived on friday afternoon to Edimburg, and I'll stay there the weekend walking and seeing the city. Then from the monday to the next saturday I'll try to know a bit of Scotland, and the sunday 13th I'lll start go down from Glasgow.

I know there are another things to see apart from castles and whisky factories, I like the sea, the rivers, the mountains, and I'm diver, but I think I won't have the time. I`ve seen activities like boats trip, and others when I prepared the routes, and I know they need time (stay before time start, one hour activity, etc), so that is time added
I'll see nature, I'll try to climb or see some tail, but I try that they don`t apart me from ride more than a half or one hour. If I start at 9 am plus 6-7 driving hours, I'd arrive at 15-16, add 2-3 hours of lunch, walking, photos, etc. with luck I'd arrive at 19

Well some of your proposals like me too much and I take, and change any route, another are very similar or equal that I've made, unfortunately for this first time in Scotland I must left some things to do and to see.
