The Rob Roy Way is a wonderful long distance walking route through the spectacular Southern Highlands, linking the Trossachs with the beauty of Highland Perthshire.

This popular 79 mile walk passes through some fine Highland scenery, meandering through beautiful glens and following tracks alongside rivers and shimmering lochs. It climbs over several high passes which provide magnificent views of the surrounding mountains such as Ben Ledi, Ben Lawers and Ben Chonzie.

The Rob Roy Way walk begins in the picturesque village of Drymen on the outskirts of Glasgow, close to the shores of Loch Lomond. It passes by the lovely waters of Loch Venachar, Loch Lubnaig, Loch Earn and Loch Tay, making its way to the pretty Victorian Spa town of Pitlochry, situated at the foot of Ben Vrackie.

Along the route are many places of interest including impressive waterfalls, historic monuments, whisky distilleries and attractive Highland villages and towns with their friendly pubs.

As the name suggests, it follows in the footsteps of legendary Rob Roy MacGregor, the fearless Highland clansman and cattle reiver, known as the "Scottish Robin Hood". The unofficial name for the Trossachs is Rob Roy Country.
