At the mouth of Lochleven near Ballachulish. Pity it’s not a more fitting structure.

Passed it a couple of times on my travels. It’s definitely a lovely place for a bus stop.
There’s probably others similar right across the Highlands - can’t think of any off the top of my head though.

The Old Dungeon Ghyll, terminus of the "Langdale Rambler" (and a great pub) is one of my favourites:

I would have to nominate these two. There's just something so stunning when your travelling along the edge of Holy Loch in Dunoon.
My local stop on the other side (in Gourock) ain’t too bad either...

I like the scenery of the peak district a lot, characterized by this bus stop near Baslow:

Perhaps not natural beauty, but Battery Road Turning Circle in South Queensferry is nice on a sunny day!

Though the South West has some unbeatable stops with Sennen Cove:


And St Ives Malakoff bus station has to be one of the most scenic too.

And her is the Malakoff just a few weeks ago!

There are quite a few scenic bus stops on the X57 route between Sheffield and Manchester via Derwent Dams and the Snake Pass!

For the grottiest stop, can I nominate the city-bound Shrub Hill Steps stop in Worcester? There is no pavement, so the bus, immediately after emerging from underneath a bridge, has to line up with a set of steps that lead into a very unwelcoming alleyway up to the station.

Pecket Well, between Hebden Bridge and Haworth

A6033

It looks far nicer in reality than it does on Google Streetview

The westbound bus stop opposite the former Cat & Fiddle pub in Cheshire? [in nice weather, the views can be superb]
