    Fabulous whatever the weather!
    This is an easy walk from Callander town centre and the new bridge is in place making the circular walk complete again. Regardless of the weather the view from the bridge is fantastic but obviously more rain makes the falls heavier. Paths are accessible for most just don't wear your best white trainers as it can get a bit muddy when wet. Lots of clear signposting from the town and along the walk and forest paths. Free parking at Bracklinn Road end of town in designated car parks and of course there are plenty of nice wee coffee shops and pubs in Callander for refreshments when you return. QRK cafe, The Crown and The Old Rectory are all dog friendly and excellent food value.

    Lovely Walk
    We did the circular walk from the Bracklin Falls car park. It was we’ll signposted and is a little over 3 miles. The falls are about a half mile from the car park and are worth a visit themselves but the highlight is the scenery further into the walk near Scout Pool. Moderately strenuous

    A good walk from town to the falls.
    It is a great walk from the Main Street of town to the falls. A lot of it is uphill on the way to see the falls, but found it easier coming back down The falls are lovely to see especially after the rain we have had the last few days. The track is easy to walk on and well sign posted. Just a few people doing the walk so not crowded at the falls . The sign post down in the main town where you start the walk says It is only half a mile ,you walk quite a way up the hill and another post says distance 1 Mile, then the next one says half a mile , that needs to be corrected as it can be very confusing and is longer than you think . Well worth the walk in anyhow.

    The eighth wonder of the world
    One of our favourite places in Scotland to visit. We make sure we leave a couple of hours every trip to enjoy the scenery and it is so different depending on which season you visit. The Bracklin Trail is beautiful, however it is very steep, and was quite difficult under foot sometimes because of the rainfall.

    Tumbling Rocky Falls .
    From the Falls carpark it’s a lovely walk to the attraction - meandering through rural woodlands and pasture, surrounded by nature in all its glory. There are interesting information boards along the route giving you information on the history and flora & fauna of the area. Once you reach the Falls, you’re aware of the cool freshness of the charged ions in the atmosphere , and the white noise of the tumbling waters. It’s all very therapeutic. We didn’t go as far as the Callander Crags, being content to just chill out taking in the scenery. Intend to return in the Winter for hopefully viewing a more dramatic water cascade.

    Worth the walk
    A peaceful forrest wall leading to wonderful views and then a dramatic waterfall. Personally, I'm not a fan of hiking/big walks so this was perfect for me. Path leading fron the centre of callander so perfect for those who don't drive.

There are a few options to hike in this area none are particularly arduous yet the visual rewards are quite remarkable.
Scottish geological and archaeological history are both available to study.
Well worth the effort.

The walk is well signposted but there is no map showing the best way to get to the summit. The signpost to the Crags points in two opposite directions, so I ended up choosing the wrong option. The path took me around halfway to the summit - it was fairly steep at times - and then the path took me back down! But it was still a pleasant walk through mature mixed woodland. It's possible to do the Crags path on a good mountain bike if you have thighs of steel. And are prepared to negotiate one set of around 10 steps.
Plenty of watering holes available in Callander. A nice walk to do, but take a map with you is my suggestion. I didn't go to Bracklinn falls this time as I'd been before.

Nice walk from Callander, or the hill-climb can be avoided by driving up to the car park which is about haf a mile from the falls

The falls are impressive after a bit of rain!

When I visited (March 2023), there were lots of signs saying that the bridge was down, but the new ne is actually in place and in use.
