Rob Roy Way Walking Holiday
Walking Holiday in Scotland

This walking trail transverses the Scottish Trossacks National Park from west to east and is available as a self guided walking holiday. Walking Holiday in Scotland from Drymen via Aberfolyle, Callander, Killin and The Falls of Dochart, Loch Tay, Kenmore to Pitlochry in the Scottish Highlands.

The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is the first National Park of Scotland, officially opened in 2003. Loch Lomond is probably one of the most famous lochs in Scotland (after Loch Ness) and the surrounding area to the east of this loch is the region of the Trossachs.

Our walking holiday starts just to the south of Loch Lomond and about 30km from Glasgow. The walk will follow a general north east direction following the Highland fault which was formed in the Ice Age. 

The Trossachs region to the east of the National Park is the so called ‘Rob Roy McGregor‘ country. Rob Roy, a so called Local Hero in some historians eyes and a villain in others, roamed the Trossachs countryside. He is buried only a short distance from our route. The region also has many great Lochs: Venachar, Lubnaig, Earn and Tay to name a few.

You can reach the start point in Drymen easily by train and bus from Glasgow and you can return easily by train from the tour finish.

The Rob Roy Way walking holiday connects with the West Highland Way at Drymen.

You can combine this Rob Roy Way walking holiday with a walk along the Scottish Higlands Great Glen from Fort William to Inverness on The Great Glen Way for a longer walking holiday.

Our self-guided walking holidays are designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind and can be tailor-made to your own personal requirements.

The routes are clearly way-marked to provide reassurance on your hiking vacation.
