Thank you so much for allowing us to have had a wonderful stay in Callander. Did you order the fantastic weather? Travelled around a lot, walked what seemed like miles, and ate some wonderful food.

Guy Danhieux, France, 

We all thoroughly enjoyed our week in Callander. We climbed Ben Ledi, Ben Vorlich & Ben Venue; walked around Glen Finglas and did a section of the West Highland Way between Rannoch Moor and Bridge of Orchy. We also hired bikes and cycled to Balquhidder and around Loch Katrine (with the help of the steamer). Fantastic scenery and only one wet day. The 3 of us that stayed at Calasraid were very impressed with the house. It was spotlessly clean, spacious, well-appointed and equipped with everything we needed. Thank you again Amanda for being so accommodating and for the welcoming Prosecco and biscuits.

Phil Hoskins, 

Thank you for the house. It was really comfortable, with everything we need in. The kids and us really enjoyed Scotland. The weather was good enough to go outside ; we had a mix of walks ; castles ; and visit to Glasgow. Callander was well placed and enabled all those visits within reasonable time.

We had a very good time and went to see the Highland Games, Stirling, Loch Lomond, Edinburgh, Bracklin falls etc..We could have filled another week of activities. So much to see and do, we will recommend this region and your house to our family and friends. The house had everything we wanted...everything was perfect and very well arranged. You have really thought of everything, including soap, shampoo, herbs etc saving us a lot of groceries to buy.

It is a lovely property. There are so many good things about the property- particularly the decor and furnishings, the cleanliness (it's rare to find somewhere that feels so clean), the comfortable beds and some of the little touches- the cafetiere, the air freshener in the toilet, etc. It is the first time in years that we have felt so comfortable in a holiday property, so thank you.

Calasraid is a beautifully well presented house with everything you are likely to need. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind to us but it is located in a lovely place especially if the sun is shining. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Elaine Hales, 

Calasraid is a great house all round - comfortable and well-furnished with all mod-cons and plenty of space.There is lots of information provided by the host at the house so a very clear idea of what to do / where to eat etc and there are even games for indoor entertainment! It's in a fantastic location for exploring the national park as well as local villages and work. The host was brilliant at providing information before our stay and was contactable in our time there - very welcoming. We'll be back - thank you!

Nicola Vantoch-Wood, 

Just back from a super stay at 'Calasraid' and booked to go back again. A lovely home with plenty room for us all. Beds very comfy and kitchen well equipped. Lots to do locally and Callander was buzzing with tourists. Thanks for a very enjoyable holiday.
