We decided to get away for a couple of days and Callander seemed the ideal place to go. Good location for driving to other areas etc. Whilst the hotel dates back to the early 1800s - the standard of cleanliness in the rooms is excellent. Yes you do have the traditional squeaky stairs etc but considering the age of the...

My husband and I were on a coach party and stayed at the Dreadnought Hotel for 4 nights. Contrary to what all the other reviews say, we enjoyed our stay here. If visitors did a little research and looked beyond first appearances, they would realize that this hotel is undergoing major refurbishments. The hotel is perfectly safe or it could...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally built in the 17th Century by the Chieftain of the clan McNab as a hostelry for his fellow clasnmen travelling to the north, the Dreadnought has remained an important landmark as well as retaining a distinctive character of its own. From the wood panelled lounge bar to the architecturally listed stained glass windows, the Dreadnought has a very unique atmosphere. Centrally situated in the popular town of Callander, the 17th Century Dreadnought Hotel successfully combines the attractions of history with modern day comfort. Callander is the gateway to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, making it an ideal destination for a Scottish break. ... more   less
