Callander Crags path improvements
Callander Crags is a dramatic landmark and an important part of Callander’s identity, mixed broad-leaf and conifer woodland set beneath the majestic crags. The woodland lies directly adjacent to the town of Callander and is close to the town’s main parking areas; however it remains under-used.
Aims & Objectives
This project will:
- Install a continuous off-road route from the town centre through the Crags that will join the path to Bracklinn Falls
- Provide local people and visitors with new opportunities to explore the area on foot.
- Provide improved signage and information within the Crags
- Encourage visitors to Callander to stay longer and visit other landmarks such as Bracklinn Falls and beyond
- A volunteer-led initiative by Forestry Commission Scotland began over winter 2018 to help improve the woods at Callander Crags by building and installing habitat boxes for birds and bats, removing invasive species and restoring sight lines. Opportunities are available to get involved in this as part of our practical conservation volunteering days.
- Works by Stirling Council to install a new section of path in the lower woods began in February 2019.
