About Callander

The town grew to prominence with the Oban Railway which is now disused and provides a cycle way and footpath providing one of the many amenities of this popular tourist destination. Set beneath steep wooded crags the town is flanked on the south side by the River Teith and from almost every point in the town Ben Ledi, the tallest mountain in The Trossachs, can be seen standing proudly at the entrance to the Leny Pass. The Meadows offer a pleasant riverside stroll and in the winter many visiting waterfowl may be seen. Keep your eyes open for feral mink, goldeneye, goosanders, dabchicks, cormorants, kingfishers and salmon.
