          The two Golf View Apartments are a purpose-built addition to a large family home superbly located in a quiet corner of the Central Scotland market town of Callander, gateway to the Highlands and southeastern entry point to the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, and is large enough to offer a wide selection of shops, restaurants, woolen mills, pubs, and other services. The apartments' balconies look toward the 18th hole of the Callander Golf Club, a challenging, scenic inland course that welcomes visitors.

THE LOCATION: Callander, conveniently located for touring, is in the very center of Scotland. Although much of country is within day-trip reach of Callander, one needn't travel far to experience the grand scenery of the Highlands, which begin just northwest of town.

CALLANDER

CENTRAL SCOTLAND

The Location

Main Street, Callander, 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 visitors center for Central Scotland.

CALLANDER (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 challenging 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 resident, Rob 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

of the Scottish Highlands.

 

  

ACTIVITIES: The apartments are, of course, ideal for golfers. Callander's Golf Course — a challenging, scenic, inland course that welcomes visitors — is just one of its attractions. The town also has its own leisure center with swimming pool, tennis, gymnasium, squash, and climbing wall. Outdoors enthusiasts of all kinds will find the Golf View Apartments a fine vacation base, as not just golf, but superb walking, hiking, mountaineering, fishing, horseback riding, cycling, and white-water kayaking are all available close by Callander. For instance, of the many fine regional walks in the Central Highlands and its foothills, one excellent example starts just 300 yards from the Golf View Apartments. HOME AT FIRST's 100+ page "Scotland Activities Guide" provides guests with scores of suggestions of all kinds for activities, shopping, dining, and, perhaps most importantly, touring throughout Scotland.

          The Golf View Apartments provide a great base for touring. Callander's central location makes it possible to explore much of Scotland in a series of day trips. Callander is located in the Central Scotland region called the Trossachs at the southeastern gateway to the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and the Highlands of Central Scotland. The mountains of the Trossachs including Ben Ledi the gateway mountain to Scotland's Central Highlands are just minutes away by car. Much of the most magnificent scenery of the Highlands is within reach by car touring from Callander. (See two sample day trips: Sail Loch Etive and See Highland Seals, and Hiking over

 

the Devil's Staircase from Glen Coe.)

          There’s history, too, with numerous

 

medieval castles the closest being DOUNE CASTLE just 15 minutes drive from the apartments, and impressive Stirling Castle just 25 minutes away and prehistoric sites easily reached by day trip. For those interested in visiting a distillery, Callander is within day trip range of 15 or more Scotch whisky producers, the nearest being a 14-minute drive.

          The region’s central location is within day-trip reach of some Inner Hebrides isles (Isle of Mull, Iona, even the Isle of Skye), towns and villages along Scotland's east and west coasts (Oban with its distillery and island ferries on the Atlantic coast is 70

with its famed Old Course is 70 miles east), as well as the great Scottish cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness. The nearest ScotRail train stations — at Dunblane (11 miles) and Stirling (15½ miles) — offer fast, frequent rail travel to Edinburgh (50 miles), Glasgow (40 miles), and Perth (35 miles), less often to Aberdeen and Inverness, meaning you can visit Scotland's busy cities without having to drive in city traffic.
