All is good in Callander.
Not much to do at night
In a nutshell
Perfect for nature & silence lovers!
Traditional Scottish pub restaurant in a lovely location just outside Callander near Ben Ledi the mountain overlooking the town. Has a beer garden and a bar where you can take your soggy dog with a real fire in winter, great after a cold &/or wet walk.
There is an on site shop selling 100's of bottled Scottish Real Ales I got lost for a while! There are also 3 house real ales available on cask, they even give you free samples.
The food is local and has all the pub greats like steak and ale pie and hand made highland beef burgers-with big portions that filled my boots! The kids were made to feel really welcome and there's a separate area for them with books and toys over looking the bird area in the garden. It's really unusual to find a scottish pub that is so child friendly and able to cater so well for them. We'll definitely be back.
Favorite Dish: The local Trossachs Trout with a coriander and herb cous cous- a massive plate of fresh fish, cous-cous & veg.

Loch Lubnaig is located about 10km north of Callander, within the Trossachs. We stopped here and spent some time at its banks, and its beauty and atmosphere were like magic. If I had to pick the one most beautiful place I saw during my first trip to Scotland, I would choose this one. The colours were just perfect, it was so calm and quiet, and just wonderful.
Loch Lubnaig is a comparatively small loch, only 5km long. The name is Gaelic and means crooked - if you have a look at a map, you see that the name fits perfectly!

Fondest memory: After we left Callander, we drove through the Trossachs. The Trossachs are part of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park which was created in 2002 and was thus Scotland's first national park. They were probably the most beautiful landscape I saw during my first visit to Scotland... They really took my breath away. It is hard to take pictures through the windows of a moving bus, but I hope you still enjoy them.
The Trossachs don't belong to the highlands, but they are often called "the highlands in miniature" because they look like a smaller version of them. This region was also the home of Rob Roy McGregor, first made famous by a novel of Sir Walter Scott, and later by the movie.
I was just fascinated by this landscape - I had expected Scotland to look like this, but not in winter, and not so far in the south. I had thought that I would see a landscape like this on a later visit, when I would finally travel further north, but not on this visit during my small day tours. I was simply amazed and just so happy, looking out of the window all the time and taking everything in!
