Things to do in Callander
Callander is a lovely wee town near Stirling. Just around a 30-minute drive from your accommodation at Loch Lomond Waterfront. A great place for a day trip during your stay. Here are some of our favourite things to do in Callander …
Callander and the surrounding area is very beautiful. There are many stunning walks with varying degrees of difficulty nearby. Bracklinn Falls is a popular walk with wonderful views of the falls. It’s a fairly easy route with a good path. To make the walk longer and a bit more challenging, you can join it up with Callander Crags. If you’re into hill walking, you may wish to climb Ben A’an. At 454 metres high, it’s one of Scotland’s smaller hills, but the view from the top is still spectacular.
Galleries, Museums and Shops
There are many independent businesses in Callander, which are lots of fun to explore. Such as Hamilton Toy Museum, a toy museum and collector’s shop with five rooms packed with toys of all types from all eras. It’s a great trip down memory lane! For art lovers, there’s Galleria Luti, a contemporary art gallery with original paintings, jewellery and hand-crafted gifts for sale. And, of course, the quirky Lady Kentmore’s Antiques. A treasure trove of antiques, curios and collectables.
With bistros, cafes, bakeries, pubs and restaurants to choose from, Callander is great for eating out. Either sit in or take out, you can enjoy a delicious lunch, while out and about in the town.
So, after walking, shopping and exploring Callander, it’s just a short drive back to your luxury accommodation at Loch Lomond Waterfront. Where you can put your feet up, or relax in the hot tub. A perfect end to the day!Book Accommodation

Breathtaking views'Where to start! We chose the waterfront for our wedding because of the absolutely breathtaking views, location and surroundings. You can't put a price on a view like that. We were planning a small intimate wedding for 28, mid week at the waterfront and living all the way down in Kent, organising could have been so difficult if it wasn't for Sheena the wedding coordinators help. Everything was organised to a fabulous standard and despite my millions of emails she didn't get sick of me and was happy to email pictures and explain thoroughly. We were so lucky to have...
We knew it would be perfect'From our very first visit to this venue we knew that it was going to be perfect for our reception! The setting is magical, with enchanting views on even the most dreich of days. The staff are fantastic and so accommodating. We loved that we had so much flexibility over our choices, unlike at other venues! There was plenty of space within the private function rooms, which gave our guests plenty of room to socialise while hiding from the wet west coast weather on our big day! It was great not having to share our day with uninvited guests. The...
We'll definitely be back again'I just wanted to thank you for such a lovely stay. The lodge was beautiful and the facilities and views amazing. We will definitely be back again.'
Our own private beach'Just walking along the West Highland way path past some of the crowded beaches made us realise the value of having your own private waterfront onto the loch. I can still picture walking down to the lochside on our first evening and watching an osprey dive for a fish!'
Could not have been happier'We could not have been happier with our choice of Loch Lomond Waterfront as our wedding venue! The amazing, stunning and extremely scenic location is really just the start of a long list of great things about this venue. We loved having site exclusivity for the whole weekend, it really made the atmosphere fun and got everyone socialising well. The wedding coordinator/manager, Sheena, is AMAZING and a total credit to the venue!! She is a dynamo that makes everything seem easy. We also loved how much flexibility and choice we had with pretty much everything about our wedding, and how...
