Rob Roy Way

Rob Roy Way ~ 79 miles (127 km) ~ 7 days' walking

The Rob Roy Way commences at the picturesque village of Drymen, just outside Glasgow, and finishes in the bustling tourist town of Pitlochry in Perthshire. As the name suggests it follows through many places linked with Rob Roy MacGregor, the legendary Scottish outlaw of the early 1700s.

This beautiful and historic route takes walkers through many woodland paths passing by the lovely waters of Lochs Venachar, Lubnaig, Earn and Tay. With the option to take in the sights of the stunning Ben Lomond at the start of the Rob Roy Way, this offers the perfect opportunity to customise your walk for those who want to see even more of what Scotland has to offer.

The route includes around 19 miles of road walking however these roads are quiet and picturesque with beautiful scenery. It should be noted that parts of the Way is not signposted but the Way is fairly easy to follow using the excellent Rucksack Reader Guide, which is supplied as part of your EasyWays Fixed Price walk.

This first section is generally easy walking taking in the Loch Ard Forest to Aberfoyle before a walk through the Menteith Hills and above Loch Venachar into Callander where, in a converted church overlooking a paved square is the Rob Roy & Trossachs Visitor Centre. As you are walking in Rob Roy’s footsteps this is a good opportunity to find out more about him via the “Rob Roy Story” where the Tourist Information Centre here is a particularly helpful.

The Rob Roy Way then tracks the disused Callander and Oban Railway to Strathyre passing under the prominent peak of Ben Ledi and following the west shore of Loch Lubnaig (with an option to visit  Balquhidder to view Rob Roy’s Grave before returning (another two miles) to pick up the Way to Lochearnhead.

After a climb up Glen Ogle you arrive at Killin with tremendous views of the Falls of Dochart before ascending the hills overlooking Loch Tay before the descent to the South Loch Tay road to Ardtalnaig and on through the Birks of Abefeldy before reaching the town and ending the trek at historic Pitlochry via the swaying suspension bridge over the River Tummel built in 1913.
