About this book

This long-distance walk from Drymen to Pitlochry was co-developed by Rucksack Readers in 2001 and is now widely recognised as a great trail. It runs for 77 miles (124 km) along some of Scotland's finest lochs and glens, using historic footpaths, a cycleway, disused railway trackbed, forest and moorland tracks and some minor road. Many places are linked with Scotland's most famous outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor (1671-1734). The Way offers superb Highland scenery and passes impressive aqueducts and viaducts, castles and forts, a stone circle and visitor centres. It is less crowded and less strenuous than the West Highland Way, but passes through friendly villages with pubs and B&Bs. It was waymarked during 2012, but the guidebook has indispensable detailed directions and fascinating background. The guidebook was first published in 2002 and this third edition documents the many improvements made to the route over its first ten years. It contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: altitude profile and route breakdown into 5-7 day stages; background on Rob Roy MacGregor, other history, heritage and wildlife; summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops; drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels (1:110,000); visitor attractions and hills to climb (Munros, Corbetts and Grahams); travel by car, train, bus or plane; foreword by Lord Steel of Aikwood; in full colour, with over 75 photographs; water-resistant paper throughout.
