“Fantastic stay!”

We stayed at Buchanan for 2 weeks from the 26th July, and felt it provided a lovely accommodation for us to stay in for our holiday. We are a family of 2 Adults and 2 Children (girl age 11, and boy age 8). It was the perfect place to access the Commonwealth Games events in Glasgow that we went to see, and then the best place to do some lovely local walks and bike rides, and trips to Stirling and Edinburgh!
The double room has plenty of wardrobe / drawer space to be able to unpack, and settle in. The kitchen is functional, with a good size fridge and freezer. There is also a washing machine.
The lounge is comfy, with a selection of family games and dvd's for a rainy day provided!
The twin bedroom is perfect for the children to sleep in.
The bathroom has an amazingly hot shower over the bath, and plenty of space to unpack your wash bag!
Overall, we were very impressed with the cleanliness and layout of the accommodation.
The welcome milk, coffee, tea and biscuits was a nice touch, and then I discovered that the kitchen / bathroom had the basic supplies of kitchen/bathroom cleaner, washing up liquid, j-cloths, bleach, and clingfilm, foil, kitchen roll etc. that are essential for being in a home from home!
We also found it very useful to keep our 4 bikes in the outside lockable shed. It was very easy to access this outside space using a lane at the side of the house.
The CO-OP supermarket is just a few doors away, and that proved very useful on a daily basis for buying fresh picnic supplies and the odd meal to cook!
The only downside is that the property doesn't have WiFi, which initially worried my husband, but we discovered that the a local pub, or even the Tourist Information Office a few doors up the road, provided WiFi when needed!
Callander is a lovely town, and there is still so much more for us to see in the local area, and beyond, so we will definitely be returning to the area at some point in the future!

Thank you for such a wonderful review of Buchanan in Callander. We know how important family holiday time is and couldn't be more pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. The Commonwealth Games were quite something - and you picked a good base with Callander being roughly 45 minutes from Glasgow and Edinburgh. We know from personal correspondence that you felt the area had so much to offer families that you will be returning. What better accolade for Loch Lomond and the Trossachs! Haste ye back!

This was our second stay in buchanan. The apartment is on the ground floor and the front door opens onto the main street. There is also a side entrance into a little courtyard . Handy if you have bikes or a pram so you don't have to take them through the house.
The apartment is comfortable and has everything you need right down to cleaning materials.
It is close to the centre of Callander and all the shops, pubs and restaurants. The Co-op is a couple of doors away.
The owner is very welcoming and lives across the road so is on hand if any problems should occur.
There is free parking on the main road opposite.
Slight downside is one of the bedrooms faces the street and you could be disturbed by the traffic if you are not an early riser. The other bedroom is at the back and very quiet.
Has no wi-fi which may put some people off.
We really enjoyed our stay on both occasions and we would definately go again.
