Scotland's Great Trails

Scotland's Great Trails

The Rob Roy Way has been operational over a period from 2002, with increasing numbers of walkers enjoying the route as the years have past. When set up it was without any form of waymarking and then from 2006 onwards there appeared a limited amount, but all focused on the southern end of the route.

With the increasing popularity of this long distance walking route and the creation of the very first "Scotland's Great Trails" (SGT) in 2011 it was clear in many quarters that the Rob Roy Way should also be classified in this category. However it failed to meet the required specification on the basis of incomplete waymarking. Over much of 2011 and the start of 2012 work has been undertaken to introduce waymarking from start to finish and this is now completed to the satisfaction of the SGT Board and the SGT status has been granted.

The ability to fund and implement this waymarking is the result of a collaborative effort by private companies, local authorities, public authorities and interest groups. Their names and web links are listed below.
