Rob Roy Way
The Rob Roy Way is an atmospheric, history-steeped walk through one of the prettiest parts 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. As you travel along this glorious 79-mile long-distance path you will be treated to many expansive loch views and exposed to the fantastic landscape of this area.
You start in the small village of Drymen, easily accessible from Glasgow and almost immediately after you start walking the trail takes you through the glorious Loch Ard Forest. Passing sites as diverse as ancient standing stones and stone circles, Crannogs – Ancient dwellings built on lochs, Roman forts and Viaducts, a vast range of Scotland’s rich history is on display. All of this surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside and wrapped up in the legend of Rob Roy makes this a completely unforgettable Scottish walk. There is some road walking involved on this walk, however, this does not detract from the wonderful scenery you will pass by on the way.
