Central Scotland. Callander may be small by population, but it offers
the shops, pubs, restaurants, and services of a town many times its
size. Callander draws visitors at all times of year who find it an ideal
for touring throughout much of Scotland, and for enjoying outdoor
recreation in the mountains, glens, lochs, and streams of Loch Lomond &
Trossachs National Park. As such, Callander is arguably the principal

(population 2,500) is an important
regional market town near the geographic center of Scotland. All of
Callander’s services are within
a five-eight minutes walking distance of the Golf View Apartments. Callander has a good selection of
pubs, restaurants, food shops, a launderette, craft shops, woolen goods outlet stores, an outdoor activities center, a
18-hole golf course, and 2 or 3 banks. The important
regional VisitScotland Information Centre tourist bureau anchors the center of town in a building that
also incorporates the
Rob Roy Centre.
This attraction is dedicated to the region’s most famous historical
Roy MacGregor, legendary
Scottish patriot, whose infamous
cattle rustling, inter-clan feuding,
and Highlands hi-jinks made him something of a Celtic Jesse James to the
Crown’s red-coated army of Scottish occupation. Although it’s impossible
to know where legend ends and historical reality begins, the Rob Roy
story adds dimension and color to the already
mystical landscape of
mountains, glens, lochs, heather, and gorse
