Hi, Jacquie ,
The walk from Montreux to Castle Chillon along the lake promenade is beautiful and not very far, but I don't remember the distance exactly. Chillon is incredible, be sure to get the headphones to enhance your visit. We also loved the boat ride from Nyon, a lovely town, to Yvoire, in France. We spent the whole day wandering around Yvoire medieval village, and having a lakeside lunch of its specialty, perch.
Chamonix is fabulous but a longer train ride. I don't know how crowded it would be to try to go up to some of the mountains, Aiguille di midi, Brevent, etc. Personally, though I love the mountains, I would Encourage you to enjoy Lake Geneva area, day trips, and the city of Geneva itself. The oldest house museum, is a museum of the history of Geneva. It is very well done and the walk up to it from the lake was very nice, interesting, beautiful neighborhoods. I think there is a little tram tour that takes you around Geneva which would be worth it. You will have a great time no matter where you go.
