We booked the Rob Roy way with Hillwalk Tours, so we had B&Bs booked along the way and also had luggage transport, so we only needed to bring our daypacks. We did it in 6 days (18, 15, 26, 24, 16, 16km) and only skipped one short part that's all along a narrow main road.
Absolutely loved the landscapes and the scenery! the people all along the way we're exceptionally friendly and nice. The track is not very well marked most of the way (it follows the cycle route 7 for long parts which is very well signposted, but the parts that differed often weren't marked at all especially between Drymen and Ardeonaig. From Acharn on it was well marked.)

We had an absolutely fantastic stay, the walk wasn't to hard, but still challenging enough for semi fit people to be a good balance.

Especially the stretch from Acharn to Aberfeldy is absolutely stunning - especially the last leg when you go by so many beautiful waterfalls!

Strongly suggest to bring a change of shoes as there's some part over a moor, that will soak even the best shoes completely in bad weather, unless it's wellies...
