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.

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. 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.
