A new walking trail following the paths used by outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor has been added to the network of Scotland's Great Trails.

Scottish Natural Heritage has announced that a new walking trail following the paths used by seventeenth-century outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor has been added to the network of Scotland's Great Trails. The new Roy Roy Way runs between Drymen and Pitlochry and is one of three new trails added to the Great Trails newtwork, along with the Berwickshire Coastal Path and the Great Glen Canoe Trail.

Peter Rawcliffe of Scottish Natural Heritage said: 'In Scotland we're very lucky to have so many long distance trails running through some of our finest scenery, so it's great to add another three routes to "Scotland's best".
