About the trail

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. The trail follows old tracks besides rivers and lochs, through a series of charming glens and over passes which provide wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

As well as the tales of Rob Roy’s adventures to uncover, there is a wide range of other historic sites to discover along the route, including prehistoric stone circles, military roads and the ruins of multiple crofts, shielings and mort-safes, all adding to the intrigue of this scenic walk.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Customer reviews from the Rob Roy Way

“Wonderful countryside. Not crowded. Accommodations were excellent. Baggage transfer was flawless. Most of the walk was on trails or paths, not motorways. Hosts were most helpful and accommodating.”
Mr Crocker, USA
“This was our third walking holiday in the UK and the third with Contours. We have been very happy with the service that Contours has provided and that is why we will book with Contours again for our next walking holiday.”

“A fabulous holiday, thank you. Made extra special with the exceptional weather that I enjoyed. No rain until the day I travelled home! All accommodation easily found and luggage always arrived.”
Ms Hoffman, USA
“Well organized, including travel package, book, hotel arrangements and luggage transfers for a care-free holiday. Well-arranged and care-free.”
Mr Beelaard, Netherlands
“Yet another fabulous walk in Scotland. Probably the most varied of all the Scottish walks I’ve done, as it combines a mix of river bank, rolling hills, and farmland, railway track beds, moorland and sandy beaches – all within a week. And it has red squirrels – hurray!”
Mr Julyan, UK
“Lovely walk, great scenery and excellent facilities where we stayed. Planning our next trip already.”
Mr Beedle, UK
“Fabulous trail, lovely weather, great hospitality!”
Ms Siemensma, The Netherlands
“Perfectly booked, great walking maps (esp the professional fold-out map saved us twice!), beautiful B&BS. We walked several times in Scotland over the last years, all self booked but unfortunately as the job gets more demanding time was to scarce to do this time to do it all myself – what can I say”
