New today, please try out our online route map: zoom in to see incredible detail of every inch of the route.

Rob Roy Way and the Challenge

Inline

The Rotary Club of Stirling just did a sponsored walk on the Rob Roy Way and we raised over £2350 for End Polio Now and Riding for the Disabled Association – not bad for a small club with a high average age:) View the photo and read more here.

On a grander scale, this year's Rob Roy Challenge is on Saturday 18 June, and will be the sixth year of this 24-hour bike-and-hike team event which has already raised over £1.8 million for various charities. Rucksack Readers is pleased to support the event with mapping from our guidebook . Although nearly all 750 places are already taken this year, it will run again in June 2012. There's a video about the 2010 Challenge on youtube.
