Accommodation In Balquhidder and Strathyre

The Braes of Balquhidder and "Rob Roy Country"

The area is steeped in Scottish history. The local Kirkyard is the final resting place of Rob Roy McGregor, where his grave is marked with the defiant motto ‘MacGregor Despite Them’. Balquhidder Kirk is open to the public during the summer months. Here you will find  a display on the history of Balquhidder and the local clans. 

Behind the present Kirk is Tom nan Aingeal, the hill of fire, where until the 19th century hearth fires were renewed at Beltane and Samhain to encourage the ancient gods to bring warmth to the land.
