The new Rob Roy Way is one of three new long distance routes added to Scottish Natural Heritage’s portfolio of ‘Scotland’s Great Trails’.
The addition of the Rob Roy Way and the two other new trails – the Berwickshire Coastal Path and Great Glen Canoe Trail – brings the total number of routes in the network up to 23, extending it to over 1,500 miles.
The trails provide opportunities to explore some of the best of the country’s landscapes and nature by foot, bike and horseback on well marked, high-quality paths.
The 77/94 mile Rob Roy Way, runs between Drymen and Pitlochry and follows the tracks and paths used by the notorious outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Scotland’s Great Trails also include the Forth-Clyde/Union Canal Towpath, the Kintyre Way, the Three Lochs Way, the West Highland Way and the West Island Way.
