The Rob Roy Way is a Scottish long distance footpath that runs from Drymen to Pitlochry. The path was created in 2002 and runs for 92 miles (148 km). The route crosses the Highland Boundary Fault, a geological fault where the Highlands meet the Lowlands. It provides spectacular views overlooking Loch Lubnaig, Loch Earn, Loch Venachar and Loch Tay.[1]

The way takes its name from Rob Roy MacGregor, a famous Scottish folk hero and outlaw of the early 18th century. It traverses countryside that he knew well and travelled frequently.[1]

Besides Drymen and Pitlochry, the way passes through Aberfoyle, Callander, Strathyre, Killin, Amulree and Aberfeldy.[2]
