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

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!'
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...
An absolutely amazing wedding dayWe had an absolutely amazing wedding day at Loch Lomond Waterfront. Lloyd and I loved getting married down at the water. The sun shone the whole day which made it even more special. Our guests also loved the venue and how peaceful it was during our ceremony. It was lovely just listening to the water during the minister's prayers. Lloyd and I both loved the intimacy of the venue and the stunning scenery it had to offer. The transitions for each part of the day were so quick and smooth. Even the guests commented on how smoothly everything ran. Our...
The staff go above and beyond'The staff were fantastic and massive thank you to Rafal who was great checking everyone in on Friday and who also went above and beyond and took my grandparents back to their holiday cottage in Milton of Buchanan after the wedding!'
Wish we had longer'The ducks were very amusing, each day they waddled around the lodges looking for food, we bought some duck food for them in the local village shop. We just wished we were here for longer and hope to return in the future.'
