Callander, The Trossachs, Scotland
Providing quality bed and breakfast accommodation, Lenymede Bed and Breakfast is a Victorian house in Callander, ideally situated for the visitor to the Southern Highlands of Scotland and the Trossachs area. The area has strong associations with Rob Roy, Sir William Wallace of Braveheart fame, and Sir Walter Scott whose books 'The Lady of the Lake' and 'Rob Roy' have attracted many to the area. Here are beautiful landscapes that offer peaceful walks through hills and forests, by stream and loch, so be sure to bring a camera and take plenty of photographs.
The house is built on a small rise overlooking the River Leny and provides extensive views of forests and hills stretching to the horizon. The gardens sweep down to the river which in warm weather offers refreshing swimming. Breakfast is served in the conservatory allowing guests to sample the view while enjoying their morning meal. Prices range from £18 to £27 per person per night. Full details of tariffs are available on the Lenymede Bed and Breakfast Rooms, Facilities & Tariffs page.
Lenymede Bed and Breakfast is located on the western outskirts of Callander, a small rural Trossachs town, 17 miles north of Stirling, Scotland.

Although on the edge of the countryside, local shops and restaurants are only a few minutes walk from the house while many major destinations are within easy reach including International Airports at Edinburgh and Glasgow.
