We live in Scotland, and would advise you to go up the West coast purely because the topography is much more interesting. You could do both, but you will find the driving much slower if you take on any single track roads, and the distances are considerable. From our home in the Central Belt of Scotland we reckon on 8 hours driving to get right up north. Beware of your road atlas which may have the far north on a different scale.
Loch Maree, Sutherland, the Applecross peninsular, Morar, bits of Skye - there is so much on the west coast. You might be best to do an East coast trip another time.
In the far north I would definitely just check that the sites are open - we have been caught out around Easter.
