  • We stayed in Kippen and were advised to visit Rob Roy's grave - which we dutifully did. While wandering around the church we noticed a walk up to the Boars head (I think I got that right). Needing the...  more »
  • We were hiking the Rob Roy Way, so it made sense to add a few miles on to our day's hike by walking through Balquhidder and up to his grave. You can drive up, as well, but we were on foot. It was a ni...  more »
  • A bit of a long drive on a twisty narrow road to get here. Not really a good road for large motorhomes or caravans. That said it was worth the effort to visit this genuine Scottish historical site.  more »

  • Who could complain The history alone is well worth the trip.. the views are beyond words, the area, people are amazing Overall historical value isn't really broadcast however if you do some research & find the place. Roads are typical Scottish roads "great well looked after" if you venture along the loch it's single track with pass places almost every 100 yards Recommended for everyone
  • Visited the church and Rob Roy MacGregors grave.Some say he was a thief and a "gangster" while some say he was a Robin Hood type. Either way he is important historically and this is worth the time for a visit.
  • Been there with my son, a couple of years ago. As in the whole of Scotland, it is like riding through history. And it rained cats and dogs when we were there.... One becomes part of their history, and I had the same feeling of deep respect for their courage as I had when I stood on the beaches of Normandy, one year later. Brave men, in a truly beautiful country..
  • We were visiting Scotland from England and wanted to see the resting place of one Scotland heros. Very peaceful. I am English and it gave me a tingle I am sure the locals would feel a lot more.
  • Well as this page and information relates to me and my family. I find it nice to be able to have look around and get a feel for the place. I have to say I've not seen many places more beautiful. When I have the chance I will visit in person and given the opportunity I could see myself living in this most idyllic of spots.
