The property

Situated on the bustling Callander high street, with shops, pubs and restaurants aplenty, this modern, three-storey mid-terrace apartment is an excellent starting point for exploring Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

With beautiful views stretching to the hills in the distance, and amenities right on your doorstep, the apartment is perfect for families and friends.

Accessed directly from the lively high street, the apartment first opens into a private entrance hall with hooks to hang your coats.

The stairs are decorated in a fun nautical theme, with a rope banister leading upstairs to the first floor where you will find three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The bedrooms are all bright, spacious and wonderfully decorated to include a double bedroom with zip/link beds and a single sofa bed for added flexibility, a twin room and a master bedroom with king-size bed and a lovely en-suite.

On the second floor, a great space for people watching on the high street, the large open plan living area is social and an ideal place for everyone to relax together.

With a two-seater breakfast bar in the kitchen, and a large fridge so you can get stocked up with delicious local produce, it’s brilliant for cooking family meals and putting together picnics for day’s out and about.

Callander is an excellent base for walkers, with the chance to kayak on Loch Venachar and the River Teith that runs through the town.

Trossachs is often referred as the miniature Highlands, and Callander is extremely popular with walkers for the sensational scenery that surrounds it.

Explore Bracklinn Falls and Callander Craggs, or venture further afield and take a ride on the steamship on Loch Katrine, or a River Cruise on Loch Lomond.

There is so much beauty to discover in this glorious corner of the National Park, you’re sure to never want to leave!

About the location

CALLANDER

Stirling 14 miles, Loch Lomond 30 miles, Perth 37 miles.

The popular tourist town of Callander, in the Stirling region of Scotland, sits on the River Teith and is known as the Gateway to the Highlands. Located on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and surrounded by beautiful scenery, Callander has been a favourite stopping point for tourists on their way to the Highlands for over 150 years. There is evidence of a settlement here reaching as far back as the Neolithic period, and to demonstrate this, a little way east of the town is Scotland’s largest chambered cairn, along with several Iron Age forts to the west. A disciple of Columba of Iona, Saint Kessog preached in this area in the 6th century and there is a knoll, Tom na Chessaig or Hill of Kessog, named in his honour, set near the River Teith. The town today is brimming with shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets, providing plenty of amenities. There are many walks and cycle paths around the town as well as the many lochs and hills of the nearby National Park. Callander is within easy reach of Stirling and Perth, and even Glasgow and Edinburgh can be found for a pleasant day trip either by car or train from Stirling.
