The Rob Roy Way PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Rob Roy Way free pdf This long-distance walk from Drymen to Pitlochry was developed by Rucksack Readers in partnership with walking enthusiasts. It runs for 79 miles (126 km) along some of Scotland's finest lochs and glens, using historic footpaths, a cycle route, forest tracks and some minor road. Many places are linked with Scotland's most famous outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor (1671-1734). The Way offers superb views, and is less crowded and less strenuous than the West Highland Way. It is not fully waymarked as such, but the book gives detailed directions and most of the route is straightforward. Walkers are advised always to carry a compass, but are unlikely to need it unless walking an exposed section in winter. This book contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: background on Rob Roy MacGregor, history, heritage and wildlife- summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops- drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels (1:110,000)- visitor attractions and hills to climb (Munros, Corbetts and Grahams)- planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane- foreword by Lord Steel of Aikwood- in full colour, with over 60 photographs- waterproof paper throughout.
