Located about 12 miles southeast of Killin village, using A85 and the A84 and then getting off and heading west on a single track road.

The grave is in a small cemetery next to an old, but active stone church and also the ruins of an even older church.

Rob Roy is buried there as well as his wife, one of his sons and one of his recent ancestors.

At that point in our trip, it was the first gravestone I had seen in Scotland dating back before 1800 (1734). I eventually saw one dated 1479 in Beauly Priory.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again - don’t go to the bother of searching the Stirling area for this grave, as it isn’t here. The name of the church is the clue, and it is situated in Balquhidder, which is on the shore of Loch Voil, and is about 35 miles away from Stirling.

Oh - and by the way, although this is an idyllic spot to visit, it is generally accepted that Rob Roy’s remains aren’t actually here at all!

Today driving through Loch Lomond & Trossachs National park we saw a sign to Rob Roy’s grave. We drove about 2 miles from the main road to a peaceful church with his grave , his wife’s grave and their son. They also had a monument for the villagers who fell in World War I.

Beautiful old church, on this grave site with the names of the parishioners from years ago. Beautiful, serene area with gorgeous old tombstones with carvings and the historic grave of Rob Roy! There were stones left on the gravesite of white and black marble and I do not know the significance.

Nice quiet location, atmospheric-make sure you do the waterfall walk at the back right corner of the newer church. Useful signage telling you a bit about Rob Roy and his burial.
