Immortalised in written word and on the silver screen, Rob Roy is to many a 'Scottish Robin Hood'.

Born Rob Roy MacGregor on the northern shores of Loch Katrine in 1671, during his life he was a soldier, a clan leader, a castle raider, an outlaw and ultimately a folk hero. What will you make of the legend?
