Route description

The route starts from Callander Crags car park on Bracklinn Road. Take the path into the wood which is a mix of mature deciduous trees, rich in wildlife. The path rises gently, then a little steeper to a viewpoint of the Menteith Hills.

Further on, a short steep downhill section of path leads to the west of Callander. Use the local streets to return to the town centre, where you can enjoy the many shops, cafes and restaurants after your walk. Or return to the Callander Crags car park by following Ancaster Road and Bracklinn Road.
