This route follows in the footsteps of Rob Roy MacGregor, the legendary Scottish outlaw who made the area unsafe around 1700. 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.
