Did this hike in memorial to my dad who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2017. He loved Scotland and especially This area. This was a especially hot and dry day with zero escape from the sun. We prepared for wet, cold and boggy but not this time! Probably the best views I have ever had from a Scottish hill.

Amazing views. 1/2 the circuit is well kept tails. 1/2 is more rugged. 10/10 would recommend

Part of the trail were absolutely lovely but there were some muddy areas to wall through. The views, when out of the clouds, were gorgeous. People are friendly.

A nice amble in the woods. Some great scenic views but didn’t find Robs cave!

A nice walk, particularly once you start to climb away from the road and once you get through the clear cut forests. The stretch into Balloch was particularly nice.

fantastic trails and facilities.

A great walk! Didn’t do the whole stretch from Balloch...instead got a relative to drop me off on the way to Balloch and hiked in a logging road that appears on the trail map as the black dotted line that ends at Craigendoran. That route took about 2 hours up and over Ben Bouie - a mountain of about a 1000ft or so...from which you get really lovely views of the Clyde and Helensburgh as well as on the way up Loch Lomond and the islands. As usual when hill walking in Scotland expect rain out of nowhere! The downhill part toward Craigendoran led through some lovely forest with rich ferns and babbling brooks and some giant slugs!! :) My 11 year old hiking buddy loved those!! Easy to spot from the huge glistening trail of goo they leave behind them!! Assuming you get some sun! ;) A great day and a nice walk into Craigendoran along some beautiful old stone walls, sheep and horse farms and typical Argyll and Bute country charm! When done head into Helensburgh and grab a 99 ice cream cone from Dino’s cafe! Stick with the vanilla!! Believe me!! It’s amaaaazing!! Best I’ve ever had! And then walk Helensburgh’s lovely seashore and boardwalk toward Rhu Spit (point)...and keep watch for washed up jelly fish and a seal that occasionally adorns the Helensburgh pier! Honestly just a lovely town and a great day of walking!

We started our visit to Fort Augustus with this easy walk through the hills. The start leads you through some sheep paddocks then up into the scenic hills overlooking the Loch Ness!

for a beginner this trail is not suitable.me and my GF went there today expecting a gentle ride but it was not.the path is mostly rocky with big dips sometimes.mire to the end of track.anyway I enjoyed the track very much.wuld go again.

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...

One of the best I’ve ridden

Really enjoying this route. It’s becoming more popular too. Mainly following National cycling route 7 means there is a little too much tarmac but the stretches which go high above the lochs afford the best views. So go high at every opportunity. The stretch between Ardtalnaig and Aberfeldy is one of the most scenic but all of the stages have there own high point. You won’t be disappointed
