Fodor's Review

The area around Balquhidder Glen, known as the Braes (Slopes) of Balquhidder, was the home of the MacLarens and the MacGregors. The grave of Rob Roy MacGregor, the 18th-century Scottish outlaw hero and subject of the 1995 movie Rob Roy, is signposted beside Balquhidder village. The site of his house, now a private farm, is beyond the parking lot at the end of the road up the glen. The glen has no through road, though there is a right-of-way (on foot) from the churchyard where Rob Roy is buried, through Kirkton Glen and on to open grasslands and a lake.
