The Rob Roy Way is an atmospheric, history-steeped walk through one of the most picturesque areas of Scotland. As you follow in the footsteps of the notorious outlaw Rob Roy you get a sense of appreciation of his love for the area and his passion for defending his land. This glorious 79-mile long-distance path starts from the small village of Drymen, easily accessible from Glasgow to the iconic town of Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire. Along the way, you pass through the ancient Loch Ard forest with wonderful opportunities to spot roe deer and red squirrels, stay in quaint towns like Aberfeldy, Killin and Callander and visit diverse historical sites such as ancient standing stones and stone circles, Crannogs – Ancient dwellings built on lochs, Roman forts and Viaducts. The route travels along a mixture of footpaths, cycle paths and some minor roads which are easy to navigate, all with dramatic highland views and more often than not, few other walkers. An unforgettable journey through a seriously underrated region of Scotland!
We offer two itineraries for the Rob Roy Way, 8 days or 9 days. Although the 9-day itinerary is graded easier, this does allow you the time to take the higher route up to the summit of Ben Ledi, 879m, on Day 3 when walking from Callander to Strathyre.
