Links with: West Highland Way
This route pays homage to Scottish folk hero, outlaw and legend Robert Roy MacGregor, known as Rob Roy, and the routes he and others used during the Jacobite uprisings and clan feuds of the 17th and 18th centuries.
Setting out from Drymen in the south of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, the Rob Roy Way intertwines briefly with the West Highland Way before bearing north east towards Pitlochry on the banks of the River Tummel.
The route splits at Ardtalnaig on Loch Tay, offering walkers two choices - a day’s walk straight to Aberfeldy alongside the River Tay, or a two-day trip via Glen Almond and Amulree, re-joining the route at Aberfeldy for the last push to Pitlochry.
Walkers are treated to views of Ben Lawers, the tenth highest mountain in Scotland, and Schiehallion, another notable ‘Munro’ (mountain over 3000ft), along the trail. Those keen to find out more about Rob Roy can drop in on the Rob Roy Visitor Centre at Callander at the end of the second stage of the route.
