We had 3 rooms for our family of 5; all rooms are on the 2nd floor. Each room has a private bath and sitting area. Having the electric kettle in the room was great; tea, creamer, sugar, and biscuits were in the room each night. The hosts were friendly and have a wonderful guest house. Breakfasts in the dining room... More

Everything about our stay at the Knowe Guest House in scenic Callander was excellent and above our expectations. It was one of the very best B&B's we have ever stayed in and the Host and Hostess, Ashley and Ray both went above and beyond when we encountered a worrisome car issue and a delay onward in our travels. No problem... More

A nice and complete guest house with a multi lingual owner. Spacious rooms. Sufficient parking. Close to the centre of Callander. Good and extensive breakfast. Bustops close by, therefore quite practical as a stop on the Rob Roy way.

My partner and I used this guest house on the last leg of our tour of Scotland. The couple you run the house are extremely friendly and very helpful when we were looking for restaurants to eat in. Additionally they recommended a really nice walk to a local waterfall. We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to stay... More

First of all we had a warm welcome. Since we travelled with our boys aged 11 and 13 we booked the family room. It is a beautiful spacious room consisting of 2 single beds and a sofa bed. However the sofa bed is in bad condition and not suited for a good night's sleep. The bathroom could have been cleaner.... More

We arrived late in the afternoon intending to stay one night. Our room was most spacious with a great view over the town and mountains. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts most friendly and helpful. We eventually had three nights and used Callander as a centre for travel to Stirling and the Trossacks. We found Callander to have a... More

The Knowe is one street back from the main road which provides for a quiet restful stopover. The room was large and well equipped and a pleasant bonus was the seperate guest lounge. Breakfast was really good.

A comfortable well appointed B&B in Callander. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with all that is required for a short stay. The breakfast was substantial and delicious. A good base for exploring the beautiful Trossachs area of Scotland.

We stayed two nights in Woodlands room at the back, the first and last night of a three day walking holiday. Comfortable room, very quiet and private, would definitely go back. Hosts very kind and welcoming. Only minor negative comment is that the free WiFi only appears to work downstairs just outside the sitting room....but it was free and we... More
