Rob Roy (1671 - 1734)

Rob Roy was a scottish outlaw immortalized as the romantic hero in Sir Walter Scott's historical novel of the same name. Baptized Robert macGregor on March 7, 1671, he was the son of a jacobite freebooter. He received his nichname (Gaelic for "Red Rob") because of his dark red hair.
When the MacGregor clan was outlawed by the Scottish Parliament, he took his mother's surname, Campbell.
When he was 22 years old he became head of the MacGregor clan and inherited large estates and raised cattle on those lands. His lands lay between those of the rival houses of Argyll and Montrose.The Duke of Montrose entagled him in debt, and Rob Roy became a bandit, chiefly at Montrose's expense. In the Jacobite rebellion of 1715 he plundered both sides.
. Because his lands lay between those of Argyll and Montrose, he played one against the other, turning their rivalry to his advantage. Through unwise speculation in cattle, he became entangled in debt to Montrose, and by 1717 was financially ruined. Declared a fraudulent bankrupt and an outlaw, he fled to the highlands with a band of armed clansmen and waged open war, chiefly against Montrose. For nearly a decade he engaged in robbery and extortion until the 2nd Duke of Argyll, in 1722, arranged a reconciliation with Montrose. Rob Roy surrendered to the authorities and was confined in Newgate prison. While awaiting exile to Barbados in 1727, he was pardoned and he returned to his home for the remainder of his life. He died at Balquhidder on Dec 28, 1734. His letters show that he was well educated and not a mere brutish highwayman.

3 graves in Balquihidder believed to be Rob Roy, his with Mary, and 2 sons. In the churchyard is the inscription "MacGregor Despite Them"
