Rob Roy Country is the name given to the area around Lochearnhead, Balquhidder, St. Fillans and Strathyre. Taking its name from the local folk hero, this location is rich with history, breath-taking scenery and numerous activities available to visitors. One of the most recent additions to it is the BLiSS Trail, a series of art installations created to promote tourism in the area. So what better way to show you these wonderful places if not by following the trail?
