Walking, Cycling & Sailing
Glen Finglas, owned by the Woodland Trust, is a particular favourite as it is described as a glen for all seasons. A large selection of maps covering the area are available from Footprint or any Tourist Office.
Many of the lochs provide a variety of water sports but the real jewel in the crown is the Steamship Sir Walter Scott which has been sailing on Loch Katrine for over a century. This is a great day out as a sail can be combined with walking or you can hire a bicycle at the pier. If the weather turns nasty you can enjoy the indoor facilities at The McLaren Leisure Centre.
The other must for anglers is James Bayne, Fishing Tackle Shop, Main Street, Callander selling tackle, permits and so on.
Roe deer are seen throughout the park especially at dawn and dusk. Red deer tend to stay on the higher mountain areas but often move down the slopes in the winter to find food. The wooded areas are home to a wide variety of small birds and red squirrels.
The Claymore Bar & the Riverside Inn provide good “pub grub”bar meals. For the more adventurous, the Chinese and Indian in Callander offer a marvellous alternative. For those staying at Lochview Barn the nearest is the excellent Strathyre Inn & Bistro offering a wide and interesting menu.
Callander also has a selection of tearooms and of course three excellent fish and chip shops. For self-catering needs there is the choice of a Tesco Express or a Co-op Supermarket.
Riverview Guest House is in the west of the town on the A84 which runs from Stirling in the South to Lochearnhead in the North. If you are coming from Skye, Fort William or Oban take the A85 and A84 to Callander.
