Rob Roy Way
The Trossachs region to the east of the National Park is the so called ‘Rob Roy McGregor‘ country. Rob Roy became a well-known and respected cattleman. It is said that he borrowed a large sum of money to increase his own cattle herd. However, his main cattle herder disappeared with the cattle and money. As a result, he defaulted on his loan and was branded an outlaw. This meant Rob Roy and his family lost their house which was then burnt down.
He later died at his house in Inverlochlarig Beag on the Braes of Balquhidder. in 1734. Rob Roy is buried a short distance from the trail which you can visit on your walking holiday. You can see a picture of his grave above.
