Can't think of any "formal" routes off top of me head but there are numerous forestry roads and tracks which will get you into the scenery. Some C class roads too which might be worth exploring.

There are a couple of scenic routes near Arrochar up into the hills, not too far away. Where ya stayin'?

Whistlefield Lodges at the side of the Loch about 2/3 the way down the east side of it . Used to do a Land Rover event up in the forest at Arrochar so know where that is .
