Callander Information Centre ideally situated in Main Street, Callander. Callander is the gateway to the Trossachs and a great destination for outdoor pursuits. Nearby attractions include Doune Castle, Loch Katrine, Rob Roy's Grave at Balquhidder and the Bracklinn Falls. We are open all year round and our friendly, knowledgeable staff can help you with booking accommodation, tickets for local attractions and excursions and also transport tickets. We have a lovely range of gifts and souvenirs, including Campbells shortbread (which is made here in Callander), Tain Pottery and Harris Tweed

Helpful staff here. Get the leaflet for the historic town trail. Takes an hour, or more if you stop along the way. Introduces you to some key buildings and explains Callander's history. The town trail is quite accessible. Very worthwhile.More
