The only marriage I can see Donald Robertson in Killin is to a Margaret Cameron in 1808?

Sorry, can't help you with itinerant shepherds but we have some nice images of Dalginross where Mary might have lived.

You can't see it from the Glentilt road but have to climb up to the pl;ateau above.

I dunno about the Margaret Cameron idea but Janet's mother-in-law's maidenname was also apparently Stewart so an error is a possibility.

I did see a possible 1806 marriage of a Donald Robertson of Pitaldonich and Margaret Stewart of Kinardochy, Dull recorded 11 Jun 1806 at Dull and 22 Jun at Blair Atholl that could be them? Killin is about 20 miles from Dull and Blair Atholl's even further.

1895 death notified by son William McArthur of Alva

What occupation was given on Janet's marriage cert?

Marriage was 1845 (before Statutory Records) got info from IGI

Havn't found any occupation for Janet
Her husband William McArthur was a Brewery Labourer / Saw Miller / Woodcutter / Labourer
Her father Donald Robertson was a shepherd

You can probably eliminate the Donald Robertson of Pitaldonich and Margaret Stewart of Kinardochy, Dull

Blair Atholl OPR, 1807
James, lawful son to Donald Robertson and Margaret Stewart, spouse, in Pitaldonuich, born 6th and baptised 8th March.

Dull OPR, 16th March 1820
Alexander, son to Donald Robertson and Margaret Stewart in Kinardochy was baptised.

1841 census for Foss, Dull.
Dwelling    Name    Age    Occupation    Birth-place
Kinardochy    
      Donald Robertson    60y    farmer    Perthshire
   Margaret Robertson    52y               Perthshire
   Christian Robertson    25y               Perthshire

1851 census, Christian's mother was still living at Kinardochy, but she was a widow and had reverted to her maiden name.

Dwelling    Name    Relation    Status    Age    Occupation    Birth-place
Kinardochy    
         Margaret Stewart    Head    widow    65y    pauper    Dull

Get back to us if contrary evidence emerges,

OK so there's a query over the surname of Margaret Stewart or Cameron, but if Janet lived with a sister in later census had you considered checking her sister's death cert?  Both would have had the same mother. 

Mary married Robert McGregor not in Killin but in Comrie.

I live 7 miles from Killin and about 19 from Comrie.
