Coppice House, situated in the picturesque village of Callander, is an ideal place to stay and explore the wonderful Trossachs in Scotland. The Coppice is surrounded by many local facilities, minutes away from fine restaurants and local shops, and directly opposite Callander Meadows. The Coppice is a small, family run B&B with three bedrooms all featuring wifi internet access, and a comfortable guest lounge in which to relax. Coppice House was built in 1875, some years after the opening of the Glasgow to Callander railway line, for the family of a Glasgow doctor, and was originally intended as the family’s summer residence. The house maintains many of fine, original Victorian features such as elaborate plasterwork, high ceilings, and sash & case windows. Coppice House is very much distinguished by its fine central turret.
Coppice House has central heating throughout, making it cosy & comfortable, even in the depths of the Scottish winter. The House is open to guests all year. In addition to the three tastefully designed bedrooms, brimming with character, there is a large lounge for the exclusive use of guests.
All Guestrooms Feature:
- Tea & Coffee Hospitality Tray

The Breakfast Room is the largest public room at Coppice House, where guests are served fresh, local produce. The Breakfast Room & Guest Lounge have a wonderful outlook directly onto Callander Meadows, and the beginning of The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
Breakfast starts with fresh fruit juices, a selection of cereals, fresh fruit salad and yogurts, before getting down to the cooked selection of sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, beans and black pudding – in any combination you choose. All of the above accompanied by brown or white toast, and a freshly brewed cup of tea or fresh ground coffee.
On The Map: Callander is located in central Scotland, barely an hour north of Edinburgh and Glasgow, and only 15 miles northwest of Stirling on the A84 road.
Callander is a bustling town at the gateway to Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, and indeed the Highlands. It’s a popular base for exploring the National Park, often referred to as ‘Scotland in Miniature’ and of course, ‘Rob Roy Country’. Set dramatically beneath high, wooded crags, the colourful, characterful town offers a variety of teashops, souvenir, gift and woollen stores. Of particular note is the Rob Roy & Trossachs Visitor Centre – hard to miss as it’s located in a converted church, right on the town square. Here, you can learn all about the Highland Rogue’s colourful history and daring escapades. The ‘Scottish Robin Hood’s’ final resting place is in Balquhidder Kirkyard, in the village of Balquhidder, just 13 miles north of town. Another interesting diversion is the Hamilton Toy Collection & Museum. Located in the heart of town, this warren-like store proudly displays all kinds of toys from the last 100 years. Admission is £2.00 per person – be prepared for a nostalgic walk down memory lane!
