As Iain Quintana recommended, I visited this pub for lunch. It was a great success and a great tip. It's located in a strategic location at the beginning of the Trossachs on the way to Lock Katrine. Nearby is Kilmahog where there are highland bulls that are hairy with a very large horns. You can feed it vegetables that you buy at the store for 1 pound. The pub food is of great quality, the service is very friendly, and the homemade beer is incredible. For those with children, they are welcome and there are toys for them. They entertain a lot while eating. I recommend it.
Restaurants in Callander
Near the jetty and located on a mountain rock, while visiting Loch Katrine we found this restaurant with cafe and pub uses. The prices are not high (given its situation) and the food is pretty good, in informal style, for a quick snack. Its elevated position offers beautiful views to the pier and the lake in general. It is the ideal place to regain strength, as it is the only of its kind that is in that area, which means that in certain times of year is very busy. It is an ideal place to eat while waiting if the boat takes a while to empty or if the family (especially the smaller ones) want to continue doing their thing near the lake. In short, it is quiet and convenient especially if you decide to spend a day at Lake Katrine.
Balquhidder is a tiny village on the way to the Highlands where the famous Rob Roy MacGregor spent the last years of his life and was buried next to his wife and later with their children. There, among the clouds, fog, lakes and mountains is one of the most famous hotels in the area - Kings House. Next to it is a tavern - the most charming restaurant I've seen and enjoyed in a long time. It is small, clad in stone and wood and has a cozy fireplace for when it's cold that gives it lots of charm. There are very few tables and even less space, some local conversation, plus a huge shotgun above the fireplace (they swear that it belonged to Rob Roy himself) and 2 swords crossed above the bar - this place overflows with personality on all sides. To all this, add the good selection of beer and a meal mountain - venison stew, sauteed mushrooms, cream of vegetable, wild boar and trout or salmon from local rivers and lakes. Most visitors are surprised by the price as it's much lower than you might expect for the quality, treatment and local atmosphere.
This Himalayan Indian restaurant is a great place to eat in Callander and, at around 15.00 pounds per head, offers great value for your money. The food is tasty and comes as a shock after having eaten rather bland Scottish food for days on end.
