Things to see and do


Callander is situated on the Banks of the river Teith at the base of the towering Callander Crags and offers an excellent base for visitors to Scotland.

The surrounding area can be explored by the many paths and trails, this can be done on foot, by car and motorbike or for the more energetic on horse back or by bicycle.

Callander’s very own mountain, Ben Ledi, is just over a mile away and in good weather most reasonably fit walkers can do the return trip from the car park to the 2840 ft summit in around 3 to 4 hours. From the summit, weather permitting, you can see the Forth Bridge to the east and the Isle of Arran on the firth of Clyde – the whole width of Scotland.

Families can enjoy several local activities including a trip to our local Safari Park at Blairdrummond or a trip down memory lane to the Hamilton toy museum.

Stretching across central Scotland from east to west, the landscapes of Loch Lomond, The Trossachs, Stirling & Forth Valley are wonderfully diverse. With towns and villages scattered across coast, country, mountains and glens, and the historic city of Stirling thrown in for good measure, it's no wonder that there are a host of things to do and places to explore in the area


The city of Stirling is 15 miles away and offers visits to Stirling Castle, the Stirling Old Town Jail and Argyll’s Lodgings, or catch the train for a daytrip to Edinburgh, Perth, or Glasgow.

If you have the time to spare, the site of the Battle of Bannockburn is also well worth a visit, and the views from the top of the Wallace Monument are nothing short of spectacular on a clear day.

Sandwiched between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Clyde, the area is woven together by rivers, canals and lochs, meaning that there are plenty of water-based activities to enjoy and lush scenery to take in. Cross Loch Lomond by speedboat, discover the shipbuilding history of West Dunbartonshire, cycle alongside the Union Canal, and you'll see what we mean.

 The Trossachs

Doune, 8 milesfrom Callander, a short 10 minute drive, is home of the famous Doune Pistols and Doune Castle recently featured in Amazons Outlander series, featuring the fictional Castle Leoch.

The Trossachs offers a visit to the Sir Walter Scott Steamer or a Visit to the Queen Elizabeth forest Centre and the Ospreys, a must if you are interested in natural history. The Red Kite Centre at Argaty near Doune is also a popular day out for bird watching enthusiasts

The area is not just steeped in legend, folklore and history - it's alive with it. Walk the same paths as the outlaw Rob Roy did 300 years ago on the Rob Roy Way, stop by Stirling Castle to see the Royal Apartments, once home to Renaissance kings and queens, and see what remains of Rome's northern-most frontier in north west Europe - the Antonine Wall in and around Falkirk.

Loch Lomond

The Drovers Inn at Inverarnan, on the North end of Loch Lomond, famous for it character and historical ambience,,, also well know for its kilted staff and good food.

We think that whatever your interests are, you will find something for you in and around Callander
