“Nice walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We parked at the top car park, and followed the signs, it was a pleasant walk on a good path as we didn't have walking boots with us. My other half got some great photos of the falls, definitely worth going to for some fresh air!

“worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

take the second carpark further up the hill for an easy walk to the falls which are much better after a lot of rain! The new bridge is fantastic

“Lovely place to visit especially after heavy rain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Drive up past Callander golf course & follow signs to falls. Some lovely forests in this area to explore & a nice walk to the falls & pretty impressive when you get there especially after heavy rain.
Its a ¾ mile walk from the car park to the falls with some lovely woods & great views over the countryside.

“A hidden, dramatic site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

It is well worth taking time out when visiting Callander to make the effort to go to the Bracklinn Falls. Although there is a car park at the top of the road, it is best to make this an outing on foot. Walking east along Main Street, turn left onto Bracklinn Road and follow the signs. If you wish, divert left and walk up by the side of the large villas until you spot Arden House-the original building featured in 1960's series Doctor Finlay's Casebook. It will be recognisable to older people who followed the stories. Reprise the route and follow the steep single track road uphill. The way is marked from the car park and will take about 15 min. Bracklinn Falls has a new bridge over the gorge-the original was washed away in 2004. The height of the water was incredible. The gorge and falls are spectacular when the waters are in spate. You can follow forest trails on the other side of the Keltie Burn, but be aware that there are some sheer drops and care must be taken.
Retrace your steps to the car park then follow the road uphill, continue until you see an old sign on the left indicating the Crags. The climb begins here and is a lovely way to take in views over the town and the surrounding hills. Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument are clearly visible, as is the River Forth. Ben Ledi and Ben Venue beckon to the west and other hills can be seen in the distance. You are high up and the trail is clear but strong footwear is advisable. Keep away from the actual crags, there is a sheer drop. The route descends through forest where you may well spot red squirrels. The path brings you out eventually at the west end of Callander. Time taken? Probably a couple of hours and well -worth it. It does require reasonable fitness though. Some may prefer to simply drive to the car park and walk to the Falls.
