Callander Information Centre ideally situated in Main Street, Callander. Callander is the gateway to the Trossachs and a great destination for outdoor pursuits. Nearby attractions include Doune Castle, Loch Katrine, Rob Roy's Grave at Balquhidder and the Bracklinn Falls. We are open all year round and our friendly, knowledgeable staff can help you with booking accommodation, tickets for local attractions and excursions and also transport tickets. We have a lovely range of gifts and souvenirs, including Campbells shortbread (which is made here in Callander), Tain Pottery and Harris Tweed

Hi Ewen, Thank you for your answers they are very helpful. If we don't have a car, what is the best way to see the sites you have listed? We will need to get to Callandar from Glasgow. Is there a rail system that goes into or by the town and up into the highland? Thanks Becky
