Take a trip to the Highlands in a Callander holiday cottage
Nicknamed "Gateway to the Highlands", the picturesque town of Callander is an ideal destination for visitors who want to experience Scotland's natural beauty and discover its fascinating history. Located on the edge of the Loch Lomond National Park, Callander is also only a few miles from the historic city of Stirling. Stay in Callander accommodation and explore Scotland for yourself.
Whisky and gin
Scotland is rightly famous for its excellent whisky, and if that is your tipple, make sure you visit Deanston Distillery, just south of Callander. This former cotton mill was converted into a distillery in the 1960s and is open to visitors who want to take a tour and try a sample of their produce. As well as whisky, Scotland is fast becoming well known as a gin producer, and Callander's McQueen Gin is one those up-and-coming producers – using an old whisky distillery to produce gins flavoured with Sweet Citrus, Chocolate Mint and Mocha, as well as a standard Premium Dry Gin. Make sure you visit the shop and take a bottle back to your self catering Callander cottage.
Meet local wildlife
Head to the Lodge Forest Visitor Centre to learn more about local wildlife and even watch nesting ospreys from the viewing room. Way-marked paths take you on walks of varying lengths and difficulties through the forest, or you can hire bikes and explore further afield. Get even closer to birds of prey at Argaty Red Kites in Doune; special hides and binoculars allow you to watch red kites in their natural habitat as part of this excellent project to encourage their numbers in the wild. See some wildlife with a difference at nearby Blair Drummond Safari Park. Home to elephants, giraffes, lions, tigers and zebras, visitors can also enjoy a boat trip to Chimp Island or blow off some steam on the Fun Fort adventure playground.
Exploring around Callander
The area around Callander is packed with historical buildings and castles. Doune Castle dates from the 14th century, yet its grand hall and defensive towers are still well preserved, and it has been used in films and TV programmes, including the popular Outlander series. If you take a day trip to Stirling, make sure you also climb the Wallace Monument with its fantastic views across the countryside and its museum devoted to the battle of Stirling Bridge and William "Braveheart" Wallace. Scotland's natural scenery is its greatest attraction. Head west into the Loch Lomond National Park to explore hiking routes up mountains and around lochs, or you can sit back and enjoy a pleasure cruise on Loch Katrine on the historic steamship Waverley.
