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!
