First of all we had a warm welcome. Since we travelled with our boys aged 11 and 13 we booked the family room. It is a beautiful spacious room consisting of 2 single beds and a sofa bed. However the sofa bed is in bad condition and not suited for a good night's sleep. The bathroom could have been cleaner.... More

We arrived late in the afternoon intending to stay one night. Our room was most spacious with a great view over the town and mountains. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts most friendly and helpful. We eventually had three nights and used Callander as a centre for travel to Stirling and the Trossacks. We found Callander to have a... More

We recently stayed at the guesthouse. It was a great stay. The rooms are very spacious and the bathroom has all the modern facilities. The breakfast was also great. The host are very helpful and prepared vegetarian breakfast for us. Will recommend this to anyone traveling in that area.

The Knowe is one street back from the main road which provides for a quiet restful stopover. The room was large and well equipped and a pleasant bonus was the seperate guest lounge. Breakfast was really good.

A comfortable well appointed B&B in Callander. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with all that is required for a short stay. The breakfast was substantial and delicious. A good base for exploring the beautiful Trossachs area of Scotland.

We stayed two nights in Woodlands room at the back, the first and last night of a three day walking holiday. Comfortable room, very quiet and private, would definitely go back. Hosts very kind and welcoming. Only minor negative comment is that the free WiFi only appears to work downstairs just outside the sitting room....but it was free and we... More

We stayed at this B&B for one night on June 23rd. We were pleasantly surprised. Our bedroom was far more spacious and well appointed then the web site photos led us to expect. We had 2 rooms, one for sleeping and a nice size sitting room. The bathroom was more then adequate with a good shower with plenty of water... More

We had such a good time in Callander and at the Knowe Guest House. Very convenient to the town with all it's facilities and also to local walks, falls and river. Rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. Good WiFi as well. Ashley and Ray are excellent hosts.

A lovely and welcoming guest house. A super location on the edge of the Trossachs in Callander . Very child friendly with everything we needed for our 18 month wee girl. Helpful owners with great advice on local area. And the full Scottish breakfast is amazing!

When passing through Callander it is easy not to notice the steeply sloping parts of the town to the north. The Knowe lies very close to the centre of the town but is elevated above it with superb views to the hills to the south. Our room was comfortable and well laid out, and the breakfast was one of the... More
