Walking Holiday in Scotland
on the Rob Roy Way

Online booking available
This walk transverses the Scottish Trossacks National Park from west to east and is available as a self guided walking holiday.
Walking Holiday in Scotland on Roy Roy Way 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 total walk is 125 km long and can be walked in 6 days/7 nights. 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.
