Help connect Callander

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Callander’s Slow Ways.

First part from Doune is alongside busy A84 with lorries and coaches going past on narrow pavement, uneven in places. (CalDou Two avoids this part) Once off A84 route goes along quiet minor roads, across moorland and along old railway route. Not suitable for buggies/wheelchairs/bikes owing to locked gates....

Good walking route from Callendar to Doune along footpaths, old railway lines, minor roads and forest tracks. There are kissing gates and locked farm gates along this route so not fully accessible. Forest tracks are steep, narrow and slippy in places....

The second obstacle was 8km from Callander where the route follows a forest track that is shown on OS map but not present on the ground....

An alternative would be to take the forestry path through Drumvaich forest which would bring you out to rejoin the path further along (see map). There has been some disturbance of the path due to forestry vehicles when you leave Drumloist Road and it isn’t so obvious as to where the bridge is to cross Annet Burn....

If you are fit and alert, then I think it is just about safe enough to use as a pedestrian route if you really need to walk between Callander and Kippen (which is why I have given it two stars rather than one). I don't believe there is any prospect of better direct route between these two locations (due to agricultural land and the position of bridges over the Forth and Teith)....

First section out of Doune on A84 isn't great for walkers, but the rest is very pleasant (NB: I've cycled not walked this)...

A decent enough walk apart from the final mile on a busy road with fast moving traffic. A couple of locked gates and rough ground in places make it unsuitable for wheelchairs or similar....

There are fallen trees across the path on Knock Mary, and stepping stone stream crossings in Glen Artney. The middle section is also relatively remote, (no facilities from start to end) and with limited phone reception....
