The Great Outdoors, Right on your Doorstep

Callander is a vibrant bustling town. It is the eastern gateway to The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park which includes about 720 square miles of some of the best scenery and wildlife in Scotland.

You can find 20 Munros, 22 large lochs, Scotland's only lake and 50 rivers and streams. The lochs and forests are a haven for those who want the peace and scenery of Loch Katrine, Loch Earn and smaller lochs, forests and rivers.

All of the lochs allow a hugh variety of watersports such as canoeing, fishing, gorge walking, kayaking, rafting, wake boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and sailing.

For walking and cycling enthusiasts there are forest tracks, abandoned railway lines and quiet glens which can be easily accessed for walking and mountain biking. More strenuous walking challenges can be found on the local Munros (Scottish mountains towering over 3000ft). The town is on the Rob Roy Way.

The woods, mountains and lochs are rich in wildlife. Throughout the year national park rangers organise and support a wide range of activies and events exploring the facinating wildlife of the parks. There are several sites nearby where the magnificant red kites can often be seen soaring in the skies and those who are lucky may catch a glimpse of ospreys feeding from the lochs.

The house is only 10 minutes from Blair Drummond Safari Park.

This really is the ideal location for those who enjoy the outdoors.
