Callander is a small attractive town situated at the confluence of two rivers and in an area of outstanding natural beauty known as The Trossachs on the edge of the Scottish highlands. Within a 5 minute drive of Callander are Loch Vennachar, Loch Achray and Loch Lubnaig. Add 10 minutes to that and you can include Loch Katrine and its steamer and the Lake of Mentieth with its Inchmaholm Priory ruins. Loch Lomond is just an hour away. These Lochs between them offer sailing, water ski-ing, steamer trips, fishing and of course magnificent scenery. Callander is in Scotland's Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. These scenic surroundings in Scotland combined with the numbers and variety of Lochs and rivers make Loch Lomond and the Trossachs a natural playground for even the most demanding visitor.
Main road access to Callander from other parts of the UK is very easy, Callander being just 14 miles from the M9 motorway, yet still totally highland in nature.
Public transport to Stirling is adequately provided by the national bus and rail network from all parts of the UK and Scotland. There is a frequent local bus service from Stirling to Callander. Timetable information may be obtained at local bus stations, bus stops and from any rail station.. Population 3,200
