/ Recomend me a route. (Glasgow based.)
We're based in Glasgow and, due to the short hours of light just now, would prefer to not go too far. (Glen Coe or closer would be ideal.) Conditions look good underfoot and the forecast is also top notch.
If the forecast is that good, and possibly good conditions underfoot set the alarm earlier, and make sure the headtorch has good batteries in it. it will be WELL worth it.
option 2. choose from below.
Round of Coire Ghaothach on Ben Lui, up left hand ridge and down right hand side, (grade 0.5).
East Ridge of Stob Bhan (Beinn a Bheither) above Ballachulish. (grade 1ish)
Or Sron na Lairig in Glencoe (grade II), with descent along the Beinn Fhada ridge.
Curved Ridge in Glencoe (II/III).
Aonach Eagach (II/III). May require an early start also.
pick any other hill, follow your nose and find an interesting way up it.
Second Ben Lui, it will be cracking if the weather is good, but get up early cos the walk in is fairly long and feels twice the distance on the way back.
