The Rob Roy Way follows small paths and narrow roads and passes through dense woodland past the impressive Lakes of Loch Venachar, Loch Lubnaig, Loch Verdien, and Loch Tay. Along the way, you can enjoy the many views of the mighty peaks of the Scottish Highlands of which Ben Lawers is the highest. Alternately, the route follows quiet scenic roads and paths through the Scottish countryside where time seems to have stood still.

The Rob Roy Way is one of Scotland's 'Great Trails' and is 127 kilometers long, or 80 miles. The route is divided into 8 stages, from Drymen to Pitlochry.

Packing list

Packing List

On the Rob Roy Way, being prepared for the changing weather is paramount. Scotland has a very diverse climate and you may experience all four seasons in one day! With this in mind, it’s essential to pack clothing, footwear, and accessories suitable for changing weather conditions. 

Try to base your clothing on the "three-layer" principle. This consists of a base layer, which will absorb the moisture from your skin; a middle layer, which should provide some warmth; and a waterproof outer layer to protect you from the rain and the wind. Here are our recommendations for your Rob Roy Way walk:

- Trousers, waterproof, lightweight, and quick-drying
- Shirts for the base layer
- Warm jacket or pullover for the middle layer
- Waterproof jacket
- Warm hat and gloves
- Trekking boots, worn in
- Good quality socks
- Extra footwear for the night
- Map
- Waste bags
- Whistle to summon assistance in case of accidents
- Water bottle containing enough water to take you to your next stop
- Torch (preferably a head-torch) with spare bulb and batteries
- Emergency food and snacks (high energy snacks such as chocolate, dried fruit, energy bars etc.)
- Hiking poles 
- First aid kit



What is the best season?
When it comes to the best season to walk the Rob Roy Way, the weather is pretty much the same no matter when you go. You can see this as either an advantage or a disadvantage. In the Highlands, the weather is always bad. You can even experience all four seasons in one day... and it will certainly rain. That is the hard truth. Officially, the best time is in the summer months, July and August. During summer, the average temperature rises slightly and the days are longer. But during those two months, it is mosquito season and that can be quite annoying. A more suitable time is spring, i.e. May to June when temperatures are about the same as in summer, there is less rain and, most importantly, no mosquitoes.  

How do I get to the starting point?
The Rob Roy Way starts in Drymen and ends in Pitlochry. The path is traditionally walked from south to north, although it can also be done in the opposite direction. Both Drymen and Pitlochry are reachable by public transport.  

Starting point
To get to Drymen, the easiest option is to take a plane, train, or bus to Glasgow. From there it takes about 2 hours by train and bus to get to Drymen. Drymen has a long history of tourism. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Drymen was a popular stopping place for Highland cattle drivers. Nowadays, this no longer happens, but Drymen is just as touristy as it was then! There are several restaurants, churches, and the ruins of Buchanan Castle.   

Ending point
The Rob Roy Way ends in Pitlochry. From here, you can return to Glasgow by train and bus in about 3.5 hours.



The route mainly follows mountain paths, tracks, small roads, and cycle paths, with shorter sections on footpaths. Several sections of the Rob Roy Way run along some quiet paths or on tarmac roads and cycle paths. Work is underway to modify sections of the route to replace them with softer surfaces.
The Rob Roy Way is well marked, although in a few places there are too few markings. The path is not complicated, so if you stick to the road you are on, everything will be fine.

Scottish Emergency Number: 999



The Covid-19 pandemic has had its grip on us, and the accommodations in the UK have had to take several preventive measures over the past two years. In the meantime, most of the measurements are not taken into consideration anymore, yet it is definitely still a factor to take into account. Some restrictions that are worth mentioning:

- Don't go on your hiking trip if you have symptoms.
- Not all the accommodations are allowed to operate at full capacity yet, so make sure you book your stay in advance.
- Keep your distance and hygiene.
- Use disinfectants and hand sanitizers.

Stay informed about the current rules per country. Make sure you know before you leave which measures you need to take during your stay. The best thing to do is to check the websites of the government.
