Named after Rob Roy MacGregor, Scotland's most famous outlaw, the Rob Roy Way meanders across the Southern Highlands of Scotland from Drymen to Pitlochry through many places where the outlaw and his clansmen were active. Although the trail passes through some of the finest highland scenery in Scotland, it avoids the summits, keeping mainly to the glens, following old tracks beside rivers and lochs and over a few passes which provide wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. Crannogs, standing stones, forts and stone circles left by prehistoric settlers, the melancholy ruins of abandoned crofts and shielings, mort-safes built to discourage body snatchers, military roads and bridges built by English troops during the Jacobean rebellion, sites of clan feuds and the tales of Rob Roy's adventures add to the charm of this scenic walk.

Beginning at Drymen near the southern shores of Loch Lomond, the trail wanders through the Loch Ard Forest to the sleepy little town of Aberfoyle in the heart of the Trossachs. It follows forest and moorland tracks through the Menteith Hills to Callander and then heads upstream beside the River Teith to the foot of Ben Ledi before following the shores of Loch Lubnaig to Strathyre. It visits the attractive village of Lochearnhead beside the waters of Loch Earn, crosses Glen Ogle to the village of Killin and then follows the shores of Loch Tay to the hamlet of Acharn. From here the route follows a track above the loch known as the Queen's Drive, ever since Queen Victoria travelled along it to admire the views of Ben Lawers and Schiehallion, before descending past the spectacular falls of Moness to the attractive little town of Aberfeldy.

The final stage of this scenic walk heads downstream beside the River Tay to the hamlet of Strathtay, where moorland tracks and forest paths lead past the mysterious stone circle of Clachan an Diridh to the bustling little town of Pitlochry.
