The Mary Queen of Scots Way stretches across central Scotland from coast to coast, linking many places associated with Mary Queen of Scots. It runs from near Succoth on Loch Long in the west to St Andrews on the Fife coast. The way links with the Cowal Way, the West Highland Way, the Rob Roy Way and the Fife Coastal Path. The Way crosses part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and the hills and lowlands of central Scotland to end on sand on the Fife coast. It passes mountains, lochs and waterfalls; castles, hill forts and aqueducts; and is broken into manageable sections which end at welcoming villages and small towns with friendly pubs and B&Bs. The Mary Queen of Scots Way goes beside and through the Arrochar Alps and hills of Loch Lomond, past the Menteith hills, along the length of the Ochils to the Lomonds of Fife. The Way goes above 1000 ft (300 m) several times, reaching its highest point at Cadger's Yett, north of Glendevon, some 1425 ft (435m) above sea level. The whole route is substantially off road.
