Things to Do
Callander is known as the eastern gateway to The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. The park includes around 720 square miles of some of the best scenery and wildlife in Scotland.
Callander is a busy little town with a wealth of independent shops and cafes to visit.
From Callander you can access an abundance of outdoor activities, stunning walks, drives and cycle paths or visit one of the many visitor attractions.
Loch Venachar and Loch Lubnaig are a short drive away, or you can visit Loch Achray, Loch Katrine, the Lake of Menteith (and sail to Inchmahome Priory) and of course Loch Lomond. These lochs between them offer sailing, water ski-ing, steamer trips, fishing and of course magnificent scenery and walks.
Ben Ledi, Callander’s very own ‘Ben’, overlooks the town and many other hill walking opportunities are within easy such as Ben A’an and Ben Venue.
The Callander Crags offer great woodland walking, the C7 cycle path runs past the house and the Meadows river park and walks are all easily reached from the front door.
Visit the nearby Leny and Bracklinn falls.
Take a trip to Stirling and visit the Castle, the Wallace Monument or the Bannockburn Experience all an easy drive away.
Why not take a drive and visit the Falkirk Wheel and see the amazing Kelpies, or stop at nearby Blair Drummond Safari Park.
Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth are all within one hours drive. The quaint fishing villages of the East Nuuk of Fife and the home of golf St Andrews are both day trip options as are Glencoe, Killin and Loch Tay.
