Called into Calander on the way home from holiday for lunch. Popped into the Information centre by chance. Don't know how good they are on the info side of things, however, the shop is currently run by volunteers as the Tourist board pulled out. We chatted to two volunteers who were friendly and I'm sure would have given help/info if we'd needed it. Usual leaflets/souvenirs available.
Well done to the Calander community volunteers!

We called in here on a day trip asking about maps of walks in the locality.

The lady we spoke to showed us a £1 map and gave us a good run down of walking on offer and the difficulties involved. Needless to say we bought the map and then used it to plan a couple of walks.

I would heartily recommend anybody looking for ideas what to do in and around Callander to visit the Information Centre.

Gave it one star because you have to rate but as far as we could see this no longer exists. Found a shop which probably was it but it's empty.

It is the wisest thing to do to get advice from one of these very helpful centres. You could usefully ask them which restaurant is the most suitable for your immediate needs, or for the type of viewing you wish to start as they will be able also to give maps, suggestions and a lot of help. Also, it is useful to remember that the Scottish roads are through the mountains and round the lochs so it does take longer than, obviously, motorway traffic and adjust your time accordingly. Also ask for suggestions of lovely views to capture on your cameras, and whether your plans are feasible before the sun goes down this time of year.

Visited a couple of times with questions. Staff were really helpful and were very knowledgeable about the local area. They sell some small gift items which were of good quality and a reasonable price.
