Reviewed September 3, 2010

I did a self driving tour of Scotland this summer -staying at bed and breakfasts throughout the country. The Straid House was a little disappointing in that even though we had a very nice breakfast and our room was clean, the beds were hard as rocks -there was traffic noise from the nearby hwy -and there really wasn't a welcoming feeling when we were there. We had a new bathroom, however there was no way one could safely step out of the shower / bathtub unit onto the bathroom floor without risking serious injury. They really need to place a non-slip surface down on the base of the bathtub, or else spend the money for a hand grip to be installed on the wall. My partner wouldn't even risk taking a shower -it seriously is that dangerous. The television didn't work and the furnishings are looking very tired. Bottom line -bed and breakfasts are in abundance in Scotland ...you can find better value for your money.

My husband and I stayed at Straid House for 3 nights after our wedding in June. I had mentioned to Sarah the owner when booking the reason for our trip and we were greeted with a bottle of bubbly on our arrival which we enjoyed in the beautiful garden. The location was fantastic, Sarah gave us the information for a local cab firm but Callender town centre was a pleasant walk away through some woods.
Every day we were asked what we would like for breakfast and everything we sampled was delicious. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and absolutely spotless.
In short a fantastic b and b and a lovely and helpful owner.
Thankyou

We where in Scotland for my wifes birthday and stayed 2 nights in Callander. Wasn't sure where to stay as some places are too small, some to close to town centres and some Hotels are too expensive!
Straid House was a great location to Callander (1.5 miles approx) and the Trossachs.
Set on it's own ground with plenty of room around with good parking, only the sheep in the surrounding fields looking on! The room was as good as any 5 star hotel i have stayed in but what 'made it' was the warm family atmosphere from Daniel, Sarah and of course John and Logan who shared their toys with our son Angus. They go way beyond what would be the minimum for a B&B, i strongly reccomend you give their place a visit. We look forward to returning and feel we have made new friends with Daniel and Sarah. Thank you. James, Linda and Angus.

Well I can not say enough good things about the Straid House. I got married at the Harbour Cafe down by Loch Venachar last week and stayed here the night before the wedding.

The rooms are perfect, lovely clean, brand new bathrooms, top of the range furniture, beautiful shutters on the windows, every single thing in the B&B is of a very high standard and that includes the owners. Lovely friendly people who can not do enoough to make your stay enjoyable.

Really did not want to leave, the owners work so hard keeping this B&B the best in the area and I will definitely be back

Thanks for everything!!

Spent 2 nights here while on a art workshop. The room was beautifully furnished, with tea/coffee making facilities, TV and ensuite shower room. The double bed was very comfortable. The full cooked breakfast was a bit too much for me on the first morning, but it was well cooked and tasty. On the second morning I had the 'continental' option which was yummy - a selection of meats and cheeses, fruit, yogurt and cereal.
The house itself is a bit outside Callander on the road to Doune, very handy for travelling north to Crainlarich, east to Stirling, Perth and Edinburgh. All in all a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.
