Rob Roy's grave

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Roy_MacGregor

Those two links should attest to Rob Roy's historicity. I used to live in that part of the world. Many of the high passes through the hills were known as routes and hiding-places used by cattle-rievers (or rustlers!). Just about the time I left the area, a statue memorialising Rob Roy was being erected in Stirling.

While Rob Roy the character is held (generally) in high regard, I fear the statue is not - I leave you to decide!
