Callander sits on the A84 16 miles to the NW of Stirling at the gateway to the Trossachs. During the 19th century Callader enjoyed the status of a resort town as evidenced by its grand Victorian main street buildings.
Folk hero Rob Roy - Rob Roy MacGregor [1671—1734] - took refuge in the local hills. He was buried in the churchyard at Balquhidder.
There are several good walks leading to Bracklinn Falls and the Callander Crags.
The Hamilton Toy Collection in Main Street has toys from the 19th century, including dolls, teddy bears, model train sets, toy soldiers, books, jigsaws and games.
Visit the Pass of Leny, with the Falls of Leny accessible from the roadside car park.
Cyclists note: the Callander to Strathyre Cycleway runs past here too, following the route of the former railway line from Callander up the western shore of Loch Lubnaig towards Killin.
Approximately 7 miles from Callander lies the Lake of Menteith: here you can hire a boat and fishing tackle and try casting for rainbow trout. Alternatively, a ferry goes out to the tree—covered island where the romantic ruins of lnchmahome Priory stand. Augustinian monks lived here in 1238, and the infant Mary, Queen of Scots, was hidden here for three weeks in 1547 after the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh.
