The church is slightly off the beaten path by a few miles but worth the visit for Rob Roy enthusiasts, since it is the location of his grave (or at least where it is marked) and also of many of his descendants. It is a very picturesque location in a quaint Scottish village. For those who like to hike, there are a number of walking trails which are highlighted on a notice board outside the church. The time spent could vary from minutes to hours depending on level of activity desired.

We visited to see Rob Roy’s grave (we did know that he’s probably not buried here but it’s still a marker to him and his family)
Beautiful churchyard with many ancient and modern gravestones, so peaceful. We had a lovely walk along to the waterfall and there were signs for other walks.
Lovely place, lovely churches.

We loved exploring this graveyard and seeing Rob Roy's grave.

Free parking, there was a donation box to help with the costs of looking after the church.

Strolling around the grounds we saw a path that led into the woods so we decided to follow it and after a minute or so we came to a lovely waterfall with a bridge over the river.

Nice way to spend an hour if you're interested in history.

Visited Rob Roy MacGregor’s grave. Had a wanted round the graveyard and Balquidder church. Interesting to see some of the graves dating back to 18th century.

Worth having a look at. Also just past the old church is a lovely little waterfall. Worth looking at.

My husband's ancestors are buried here. It is amazing that these are still here. We took the walk right beside the cemetery to the Creag an Turic to the gathering place for the MacLaren Clan. Beautiful view from there of the countryside. Trail is marked and not too difficult.

Excellent detour to see Rob Roy's grave and to do a woodland hike. It was drizzling the afternoon we went, but still had an excellent walk. Up, up, up to the monument for the Maclaren clan with terrific views to the valley and loch. We even startled a deer from the underbrush! Worth the detour.

OK so a lot of my dead relatives on the McLaren side are buried here. The gravestones tell very interesting stories about who lays beneath. This son and that son or daughter and so forth. For McLaren descendants this is a must see. Oh yeah, that rascal Rob Roy is also supposed to be buried here. He was killed by John McLaren in a duel, but then his son shot John Mclaren in the back. And was hung for it in Edinburgh. Not far off the main road so easy to get to from Glasgow (1.5 hr away) or Callander. The site is beautiful : the abbey ruins from the 1600s and the newer Kirk from the 1800s. All a stones throw from picturesque Loch Voil. The trail up to “Rock of the Boar” is not far or strenuous but also a must do for all McLarens. Go rally with all the spirits around the tribal rock.

A beautiful church is situated here. Rob Roy's grave is possibly here. A great place for a day out in a spectacular valley. Great walks nearby and some history of the McClaren clan. Well preserved old graves and headstones.

We were staying locally and the old Kirk and Rob Roy's grave was a surprise. It is worth the stop and exploring the locally area. Very educational if you are interested in Scottish history.
