Balquhidder

(Kirkton of Balquhidder)
Stirling

The Kirkton of Balquhidder is a hamlet situated in the parish of Balquhidder, Stirling Council Area, at the east end of Loch Voil, but the name is also applied to the Braes of Balquhidder, an area celebrated in a song by Robert Tannahill that extends along the lochside. Once the home of the Clan MacLaren, it came to be more closely associated with the MacGregors, especially Rob Roy MacGregor (1671 - 1734) who lies buried adjacent to the roofless old church of the parish along with his wife and two sons.
