Hardstanding pitches with electric and water

General

  • Highland site on the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs
  • Hikers’ haven: Rob Roy Way, Birds of Prey Trail and 21 munros nearby
  • Tons of outdoor activities: watersports, biking, trekking and safaris

Fed up of crowds, car fumes and the busy commute, or simply in need of an escape to the country? Park yourself up for a nature-filled getaway at Callander Woods Holiday Park, a family-friendly site in the small Perthshire town of Callander in central Scotland.

On the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, Callander Woods is a top spot for experiencing the Scottish highlands. Hikers will want to head to one of the 21 munros within the park, pick their way along the Rob Roy Way as it passes through Callander, or follow the Birds of Prey Trail, keeping a weather (or should that be feather?) eye out for owls, eagles, osprey and buzzards.

Of course, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs isn’t just for hikers – you can explore the Great Trossachs forest, go for a trip in a Canadian canoe, try wake surfing or paddleboarding or, if you’re feeling less energetic, take a Segway safari.

Back on site, you can still stay close to nature by making your way to the banks of the River Teith and casting a line. If you’re lucky enough to land a big one, slap it on the barbecue for dinner and chow down in peace and quiet among the trees.

Nothing biting? No worries – there are plenty of restaurants within 25 minutes that can make you feel better about your failed fishing ambitions.

From the manager...

Hello,
Thank you for your review of Callander Woods, We are sorry you felt let down by the lack of trees on the site. We do try to strike a balance between nature and the site. We are bordered by line of trees around the park and encourage nature as much as possible.
We do monitor the park and will certainly monitor our showers.

    Great location near to many tourist attractions . Good sized level pitches good amenities for kids, small woodland walk for dogs. Toilet block kept very clean and had good number of facilities including a few family rooms. Just on edge of Callander (walkable ) with lots of small shops, cafes and pubs serving food at reasonable prices.

    Disliked: 

    Wi-fi hit and miss.

    Easy to find, and lovely surroundings. A handy first stop on our way out of Edinburgh. Super friendly staff welcomed us, and were always on hand to help when needed. The camp office also has a nice little shop within it for essentials (and non essentials) you may need. Ammenties were also top notch, clean, and easy to access. Note, the showers require 20p coins to operate (best to know in advance, rather than just as you are about to step into it!). Would definitely visit again.

    First time here as we are new to Motorhome, only had ours since beginning of month, so we are only doing overnight stays until we have got used to it. Easy access once our card was sorted as it didn't let us in to begin with. Easy to find pitches, and large enough that you didn't feel on top of neighbours. Everyone acknowledges each other and saw a young family given assistance to set up in the evening by their neighbours, which was lovely. Close enough to shower block which was clean and tidy, although lots of grass had been trailed in on feet, but not a lot can be done about that. Did think that it seemed small for size of park, but when I used shower in morning, I was the only one there, so obviously sufficient. Weather was good, which helps, so were able to sit out in evening, and even though there were lots of others doing the same, didn't feel overlooked and everyone was mindful of others spaces. Could have been noisy, but not aware of anything particularly. Certainly will be back to try again for a longer period.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really to say, other than to empty our tanks we had to come out one barrier and into the next one, which although was easy to do, seemed a bit of a faff!

    The shower block, dishwashing and laundry facilities were spotless. The campsite was relaxed, friendly and quiet. I love that the children's play park has a roof, such a good idea in Scotland! A perfect base to walk Ben Ledi. Will definitely be back

    Disliked: 

    The music in the shower block was a bit loud - am I getting old? :-)
    The grass could have been a little shorter but we have had a lot of rainy, warm weather recently.

From the manager...

Hello,
Thank you for your review of Callander Woods. The site is a great base to explore the Trossachs and surrounding area.
We found this year the grass growing very fast but the team have been working hard cutting the grass and keeping on top of it.

Local attractions

This area isn’t called Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park for nothing: the shores of Loch Lomond are 45 minutes from Callander Woods Holiday Park. Make the drive for boat trips, the gardens at Balloch Castle Country Park, and the aquarium.

There’s plenty near here to keep the kids entertained – they can have a poke around the Hamilton Toy Collection (one of the largest privately owned toy collections in the UK), meet the animals at Blair Drummond Safari Park or fall back in time on a tour of the stunning Loch Katrine aboard the Steamship Sir Walter Scott.

Grownups can find entertainment in a barrel of nearby distilleries. Start with tour and tasting at McQueen Gin (five minutes from site), then venture further afield under the careful watch of your designated driver for Deanston Distillery (10 minutes) and Glengoyne Distillery (40 minutes) for more tastings.

If you’re up for a longer car journey, day trips to Glasgow and Edinburgh, both roughly an hour away, come highly recommended: museums, galleries, gardens, historical sites and a host of top-notch eateries will make either jaunt worthwhile.

Sound like your absolute nightmare? Stick close to site at the Tank Drive Challenge, Doune Castle, or with a nice peaceful day of fishing, all within 15 minutes of Callander Woods.

Must see

  • Stirling Castle (12.1 miles)
  • National Wallace Monument (12.3 miles)
  • Royal Burgh of Stirling Visitor Centre (12.8 miles)
