Walks without a car

Hi,

We are currently trying to settle on somewhere to stay for a week's holiday. We are probably looking at Killin, but also considering Callander. We do not have a car and don't really want to hire one, but want to be able to do some good walks including up a mountain (moderate level) if possible. Any suggestions of good walks to do from Callander, or indeed Killin, without having a car would be gratefully received.

I have started looking at the walkhighlands website, but while it's great with not knowing the area it's difficult and lengthy trying to work out what would be good options. Especially as lots of them say the starting place is some car park somewhere!

Thanks,

Lindesay

There is a bus from Callander to Killin giving you access to hills between the two, the obvious one being Ben Ledi just north of Callander.

This might also help scottishhillsbybusandtrain.co.uk/

The best mountain around Killin would be Ben Lawers - or its companion hills to the East, or the Tarmachans to its West. The best mountain near Callander would be Stuc a Chroinn or Ben Vorlich. Accessible by a road to Brankiln falls starting at the east end of the high street. You might organise a taxi drop off.

These are all big beasts and the usual warnings about kit and navigation and timings apply. Ledi is easier.
