There are four challenge options for you to choose from:
Rob Roy Ramble
Follow in Rob Roy MacGregor’s footsteps with a challenging 16 mile hike along the Rob Roy Way where you’ll see the majestic views of Loch Tay. This part of the challenge doesn’t involve any cycling.
You’ll take the 16 mile hike down Rob Roy Way then take a leap into historical MacGregor Country with a rolling 15 mile cycle route through the ancient village of Fortingall. Total distance: 31 miles.
Rob Roy was known as Big Red and this route requires bravery and stamina to match that of the infamous outlaw on the 16 mile hike that’s followed up by a 35 mile cycle. Your bike will take you winding past Kenmore to Kinloch Loch Rannoch and back to Kenmore for some amazing views. Total distance: 51 miles.
A tough test of stamina and endurance, you’ll be hiking 16 miles to Kenmore along Rob Roy Way and then climb your way out of the shadow of the mighty Schiehallion mountain on a 56 mile cycle route. You’ll cruise past Kenmore, go on to the stunning West Lock Rannoch and return back at Kenmore. Total distance: 72 miles.
After completing your challenge you’ll get free entry to the Rob Roy Festival at the Kenmore Hub where they’ll be entertainment, food and fireworks. A perfect end to an amazing experience!
