After a long drive up from Northern England we were surprised to find that Callander was only just under an hour from Glasgow. Although the scenery would suggest we were in the far north of Scotland (Having never been to the Trossachs before I was blown away by its beauty). After chatting to the owner via email. We knew their was no designated parking for the apartment but managed to get parked around the corner, which was literally a 60 second walk to the front door and we parked their all week. On entering the apartment you are faced with a large hallway with a hardwood floor which was ideal for keeping the two bikes. Then up the spiral staircase to the first floor which is where the three double bedrooms and the family bathroom are located. The whole apartment seemed like it had just been decorated or it was just maintained to a high standard. We are seasoned holiday home guests as we never go abroad and the first thing which struck us about this holiday home was the quality of the furnishings. (The mattresses were almost as thick as the beds themselves). After a quick look around to allocate the rooms we made our way up to the second floor which Is accessed via another wide staircase. On the second floor you find the main living are( Very large living area, dinning area and kitchen). Which is open plan but is also large enough for it to feel like you are in your own space without losing the social aspect of open plan living. The single bedroom is also located on this floor which was great for keeping an eye on the baby. The decor and fixtures on the second floor are very much in the same vein as that of the first floor. With a modern fitted kitchen with ample crockery and cutlery. (Again a major relief when renting a holiday home). And two large couches and a couple of lounging chairs in the living area. After we got settled in we had a look at the information pack the owners had compiled for there guests,which was very comprehensive and informative. (You always research the local area but nothing beats a bit of local knowledge). Callander is a lovely Highland town and the Apartment is situated right at the heart of it on the Main Street. The town is full of very interesting gift shops, cafes, pubs and of course the fudge shop which we must have visited most days. Just a short drive away we visited Doune Castle, the Deanston Distillery and Blair Drummond safari park, to name just a few. We had six dry days out of seven which I know from many previous visits north of the boarder is a bit like winning the lottery and we will definitely plan a trip here again in May/June time. And the Callander apartment is number one on our return to list.
