Callander

Callander

Callander, in Perthshire, is situated on the north bank of the Teith, here crossed by a three-arched bridge, and sheltered by a ridge of wooded hills. A mile and a half northeast are the Falls of Bracklinn (Gaelic, white-foaming pool ), formed by the Keltie, which takes a leap of 50 feet down the red sandstone gorge on its way to the Teith. Two miles north-west of Callander is the Pass of Leny, the gate of the Highlands, and farther in the same direction is Loch Lubnaig, on the shores of which stand the ruins of St Brides chapel. Callander owes much of its prosperity to the fact that it is the centre from which the Trossachs is usually visited, the route being that described in Scotts Lady of the Ldke. The ascent of Ben Ledi is commonly made from the town.
