Drymen is a very pretty market town which nestles below Conic Hill in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. You begin your journey by heading north along a minor road into the countryside. After entering Loch Ard forest you walk through part of the Loch Katrine water Scheme and then head down into the village of Aberfoyle. Keep an eye out for the cast iron coffins at Kirkton Church and the Scottish wool centre.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

Great way to start your walk to physically ease into the Rob Roy Way. Mostly paved and on the cycle path. The aqueduct was the only major point of interest (for us) on this section.
