Callander forms one of the main gateways to the Highlands. It sits at the eastern end of the Trossachs and at the southern end of the Pass of Leny, and is an ideal base for those wishing to explore the area.

Sir Walter Scott and William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy all favoured Callander and it lays claim to Rob Roy, Scotland's answer to Robin Hood. Callander is home to the Rob Roy and Trossachs Visitor Centre situated in the town square. The centre houses a display and multimedia presentations. Rob Roy is also remembered in the Rob Roy Way, the unoffical long distance footpath from Drymen to Pitlochry that passes through the area.

A short walk east from the town is pretty Bracklinn Falls which can be visited en-route to Callander Crags. To the west are the Falls of Leny. Longer and more strenuous walks, like that to the summit of Ben Ledi, are also possible when using Callander as a base.
