Stevenson Way

Argyll and Bute, Clackmannanshire, Edinburgh, Fife, Highland, Perth and Kinross, Stirling

435 km / 270 miles
A unique wilderness walk across the heart of Scotland and based on the book Kidnapped, by Robert Louis Stevenson. The Stevenson Way starts on the west cost of Mull, on the island of Erraid. The route goes through Morvern and then across Loch Linnhe to Ballachulish near the site of the murder of Colin Campbell. Then it is on to rugged Glencoe with its majestic mountains. From Glencoe the Way leads into the great vast wilderness of Rannoch Moor and to the slopes of remote Ben Alder by Loch Ericht. The Way turns south now, heading to Loch Rannoch and on through to the mountains above Bridge of Orchy, near today's West Highland Way, and on to near Crianlarich. It is up and over the mountains now to Loch Voil and Balquhidder, where Rob Roy McGregor lies buried. From here the Way leads on past Callander and Dunblane to Stirling and then along the north of the River Forth to Limekilns, and finally across the Forth to Edinburgh. Overview maps of the route are available on the website below.
