Not worth a special trip, but suitably modest recognition of an outlaw, albeit a national hero. Nice church though.

After stopping off at Killin we drove to Balquhidder, lovely drive and the graveyard is a beautiful setting, nice place to wonder around and appreciate the scenery and it fired up my young daughters imagination to read more about Rob Roy on her return home.

Love the tranquillity of this place. There is something special about the graveyard. The old church is great to look at too. If you follow the path behind the church and climb upwards you come on a series of small waterfalls that are beautiful. There is camping available locally too. You an feel a sense of history in this area.

Stopped here on our travels, such a peaceful place, paid my respects to Rob Roy and family buried here, and looked around the old church ruins and graves as well, just down the road is a great photo opportunity as well, the bridge that crosses the river, nice reflections and very surreal. All up a beautiful place and filled with... More

We stopped here expecting to maybe spend a half hour and get back on the road. We ended up spending nearly 2 hours, enjoying the story boards in the back room of the church, the grounds, and the views.

This is a FREE attraction that is a wonderful part of Scottish history. Very easy to locate with parking for about 8 cars. Located on a beautiful scenic country road with spectacular views. The grave is simple and easily accessible. There is also a wonderful old church and graveyard to explore. A wonderful 20 minute stop to stretch your legs... More

After such a turbulent life Rob Roy has found peace with his family. The grave was framed with a low metal fence with his wife and two sons beside him. The crumbling kirk walls stand nearby and other grave stones surround Rob Roy. The nearby town is quietly nestled among the trees on this narrow side road.

Although it takes some time to find your way to Balqhidder, this is worth the time and visit the old ruins and the standing church as well. Cemetary is filled with history!

As in many places we visited in Britain, the drive there was spectacular. You pass little farms and villages, fields with cows, ewes with spring lambs, and wild spring flowers; lofty mountains and babbling brooks. Wordsworth and Sir Walter Scott were so inspired by this area! Then the tiny old church itself, and its churchyard with ancient Celtic crosses and... More
