If you are Scottish this really should be on your list

To be honest, didn't do much for me but the setting and the church are lovely. I am not Scottish however but my husband is and thought it great!

To see the actual grave of such an historic figure (along with his wife's and sons' graves) was very moving. The historic church is a ruin, but still very interesting. This is worth a stop on your tour.

While on tour with Reel Private Tours of Scotland, my guide, Iain Simpson took me to Rob Roy's Grave. A very quiet and beautiful churchyard in Balquidder. We were fortunate to arrive when there was an actor there, playing the roll of Rob and talking about his life. The kirk there is very beautiful and the country around is awesome.

have visited Rob Roy's grave several times over the years at the churchyard in Balquhidder. It is a very picturesque spot with several interesting walks nearby and a host of Scottish history all around. He is buried alongside his wife Mary and two of his sons. He lived to the ripe old age (then) of 63.

We only saw this national park from the car and roadside stops, but there's much more to enjoy once you get off the road. We took a counterclockwise loop from Inverary to Tyndrum, on A83, A82 (stunning drive along the shores of Loch Lomond), A81, A84, and A85. AT Aberfoyle, we detoured along the smaller A821 past two picturesque lochs.... More

If you are captivated by the legend of Rob Roy then this is an interesting historical site. It's a great drive on tracks that are called roads.

Rob Roy is an important part of Scottish history to us (my husband and myself) so we decided to find this site. It is a couple of kilometers off the main highway and it is a VERY narrow road to travel. You need to pull over to allow vehicles to pass, so travel time is a little slower. There is... More

An essential trip not only for anyone interested in Scotland's history. The church is also worth a visit too. The drive up to Balquidder is also well worth the effort. Recommend stopping off at Mhor 84
