About Callander
Callander is a small Scottish town with a population of 2700. It is located at the junction of the rivers Teith and Lenny and is widely regarded as the gateway to the Highlands. It has a rich history having played host to various peoples throughout the ages with the remains of a Pictish fort and a Roman camp evidencing this habitation.

Made famous at the beginning of the 19th century by the works of the novelist, Sir Walter Scott, Callander was established as a holiday destination. The present town was laid out in the 18th century. Its focal point is the well-proportioned Ancaster Square in front of St Kessogs Church, now home to the Tourist Information Office.
