  • Be sure you hike up a little ways past the church to the small waterfall. Also, hike to the top and see the MacClaren monument!  more »
  • You can not pass through this area without making a stop in Balquihidder to visit the cemetery in this town, where is buried Rob Roy and his family. His life inspired the movie "Rob Roy" starring Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange. Safety feature, the real name of Rob Roy was Robert MacGregor and was a pastor who grew into the Loch Arklet. After a hard winter, he decided to take their flocks to richer pastures but these belonged to the Duke of Montrose, and in retaliation the Duke declared him an outlaw, burned their house and their few possessions. Once outside the law carried out raids in the Ducal lands and earned a Robin Hood-like fame. In the year 1725 he was forgiven and spent his final years in the village of Balquihidde. They say that there are always fresh flowers on his grave, but when we went there were dry and very wilted flowers...

  • A quaint churchyard with the grave of Rob Roy plus ruins of the earlier church. Worthy of a quick visit if you're nearby.  more »
