Hillwalk Tours Scotland Rob Roy Way

Details for Hillwalk Tours Scotland Rob Roy Way

The Rob Roy Way is one of Scotland's Great Trails that stretches for 127km between Drymen and Pitlochry. The trail takes its name from Rob Roy MacGregor and follows the tracks and paths used by this famous Scottish folk hero and outlaw of the early 18th century.

The Rob Roy Way was opened in 2002. It crosses the Highland Boundary Fault, a geological fault where the Highlands meet the Lowlands. The route follows old tracks beside rivers and lochs and climbs over a few passes which provide wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

For history buffs, the route passes many historical sites such as Roman forts and viaducts, crannogs (homes built on lakes), standing stones, forts and stone circles left by prehistoric settlers, military roads and bridges built by English troops during the Jacobite rebellion. In addition, sites of clan feuds and the tales of Rob Roy's adventures add to the charm of this scenic walk.
