Callander and the Surrounding Area
A Perfect Base for your Highland Adventure
Callander Meadows, literally across the road, offers walks (gentle or vigorous, depending on your mood). Callander Crags, at the back of the house, will challenge ‘weekend walkers’, or give those not accustomed to hill walking; a good workout. The Crags are particularly beautiful in spring and autumn.
The Callander Crags dominate the town from the North. The Crags are a visible part of the Highland Boundary Fault, rising to 343m at the cairn. Local walks include Bracklinn Falls, The Meadows, Callander Crags and the Wood Walks. The town sits on the Trossachs Bird of Prey Trail.
Beautiful Loch Venachar (image above courtesy of Brian Doyle) is a fifteen minute drive from the house and offers stunning scenery and miles of pleasant loch-side walks.
