Hiking the Rob Roy Way
Sections of this walk take in open glen and high level moorland. Occasionally, mist and low cloud in these area can make visibility poor, and navigation difficult. However, the grand majority of the walk is in bright open air, with only a few parts under cover of forest canopy.
The Rob Roy Way is not an 'official' long distance path, it has come into being through the best efforts of enthusiasts and landowners. This means that although the path itself is quite straightforward, it is not waymarked - so confidence in navigation is necessary.
The latter stages of the Rob Roy Way move downstream of the River Tay to Strathtay, from where St Columba and St Cuthbert led missions in 6C bringing christianity Scotland, past Clachan an Diridh ancient four poster stone circle, to the journey's end at the bustling Highland town of Pitlochry.
The Rob Roy Way is an easy grade walk passing through some of Scotland's most picturesque scenery. The route skirts around some of the highest and most difficult terrain and primarily follows glens, forest tracks, loch side trails with a few gentle slopes showcasing the more memorable views of the surrounding mountains.
The route followed will involve road walking between various stages. These are secluded roads, calm and scenic, and should not prove too taxing.
