Robert Roy MacGregor, (baptized 7 March 1671 - 28 December 1734)
usually known simply as Rob Roy or alternately Red MacGregor, was a famous Scottish folk hero and outlaw of the early 18th century, who is sometimes known as the Scottish Robin Hood. Rob Roy is anglicised from the Scottish Gaelic Raibeart Ruadh, or Red Robert. This is because Rob Roy had red hair, though it darkened to auburn in later life. Rob Roy was born at Glengyle, at the head of Loch Katrine, as proved by the Baptism al Register of Buchanan Parish.
