Callander is a small town in Stirlingshire in the Central Belt of Scotland. Tourist publicity calls it "The Gateway to the Highlands" and for once that over-used term is correct: the town sits right on the lowland-highland fault line, with crags looming just north of town, and streams racing out of the mountains to form the River Teith. Gaelic was spoken here until about 1900. The main reason to come is to see The Trossachs, the eastern part of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
To visitors aged 70 plus, Callander will always be Tannochbrae: it was the location for the BBC series "Dr Finlay's Casebook", with the theme music dancing over the view of the River Teith bridge.
The TIC is on Main St, open daily 09:30-16:00.
