Callander

[Callander]

Overlooked by the hulk of Ben Ledi, Callander is one of the gateways to the Trossachs, a hotspot for tourists and crammed with tempting eateries. The attractive Main Street is also the A84, getting unpleasantly congested on sunny weekends, but it's relatively easy to escape the crowds. Just behind the town centre is the beautiful River Teith (a double-edged sword for the town, as it's prone to flooding after heavy rain or snowmelt), with paths following the bank west from the riverside car park. Or take to the hills - some nearby routes are listed below.
