Reasons to visit

The picturesque town of Callander lies just south of the Highland Boundary Fault - historically a meeting point between the Highlands and the Lowlands.

It's close to Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park with its spectacular scenery, making it a great location for anyone wanting to explore the area. There are walks for all abilities, from low level strolls to serious hill walking. Don't miss the beautiful Bracklinn Falls, a great mid-level walk just north of the town, with views over the falls and gorge below.

There's fishing on rivers and lochs, historical sightseeing, wildlife watching, adventure sports, pony trekking and golf, giving you the opportunity to fit a lot in to your stay in Callander!

The town itself has many niche shops and a wide range of teashops, pubs and restaurants. Year-round you'll also find live music, arts & crafts, film and jazz festivals.
