display_description In "Rob Roy", a historical novel by Walter Scott, Frank Osbaldistone, travels to the North of England, and later to the Scottish Highlands, to collect a debt. During this time, he meets the legendary Scotsman, Rob Roy MacGregor. Set during the Jacobite Uprising of 1715, the novel realistically depicts the terrible social conditions in Scotland during that time. Hugely popular in its day for its gripping drama and vivid battle scenes, it was published anonymously in 1817. Robert Louis Stevenson called it "the best of Sir Walter's", and Walter Scott himself, "the best of novelists."
