Kirkton Glen is a forested valley running north from Balquhidder. The glen is on the line of an old right of way over the hills to Ledcharrie in Glen Dochart but these days is more often visited on a circular walk from the south end. There are good views of the surrounding mountains. The walk starts at Rob Roys Grave.
The lochs, river, and glens around Balquhidder are steeped in history and closely associated with the MacGregors, especially the famous outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor. The village attracts many visitors from around the world who come to see the final resting place of Rob Roy, in Balquhidder Kirkyard alongside his wife and two sons.
Balquhidder is also a popular place for walking with many scenic routes, such as the Rob Roy Way, Kirkton Pass, and Balquhidder Glen. There are also a number of paths that lead out into the surrounding mountains including Stob Binnein 3,822 ft (1165 m) and Ben More 3,851 ft (1174 m). In the village there are the remains of a number of pre-historic sites including a stone circle, the Pudreag Stone, and a Neolithic burial chamber cairn to the east. Tom na Voil self catering holiday cottage sits at the foot of Kirkton Glen. The Kingshouse Cottages are situated just 3 miles away from the starting point.
