As you wander through the highland glens towards Killin you can imagine the ghost of Rob Roy walking beside you and the trials and tribulations he would have faced.

A fantastic days walking with abundant historical interest and wildlife combined with ever changing mountain views. You pass the Falls of Dochart just before entering Killin with its attractive buildings and Breadalbane Folklore Centre. There are also a couple of good detours on today's trip.  Rob Roy’s Grave lies in Balquhidder and you may wish to follow the cycle route into the town to visit this pertinent attraction, although this does add roughly 6 kilometres onto the days walk. Lochearnhead also makes a pleasant detour and a convenient lunch stop; you will find full directions in the guidebook.

A nice day - we felt the morning and afternoon were quite different and the loch was very pretty. However much of this day was on the bike path, which we found could get a little crowded.
