“great value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for a night in mid-June as we were passing through.

Caroline was wonderful; friendly and accommodating.

Our room was huge, with a sink and mirror. The bathroom was just down the hall, with a full shower and plenty of hot water. Our stay was very relaxed and comfortable.

The full breakfast was amazing; a great way to start the day.

Overall, it was a great place to stop-off for a night, and we would highly recommend it!

Some Callander tips: before breakfast we took an early hike up to Bracklinn Falls. It was beautiful and peaceful, a very nice way to see Callander! We ate dinner the night before at Taj- amazing Indian food and very nice service!

We rang and booked a room for ourselves and our toddler. At the last minute our teenage daughter decided she would also like to come with us. We called Caroline and explained our situation and she put a fold down bed out for us. We were greeted with a warm friendly welcome, the room was clean and quiet. It has a sink and the bathroom is shared between the three rooms but it was not a problem. The B&B was full but we did not hear the other guests at all. Breakfast was nice and set us up for the day. We have visited Callander before and will do so in the future and The White Shutters would be our first choice of somewhere to stay.

Booked a room at last minute for a night after friends had already booked and invited me along. Had never stayed here before, but I certainly would again! Ideal location just off the main road that runs through Callander. Despite being a fairly busy road around the corner, did not hear any road noise at all. For the money, it's a steal! Obviously, at this price range there's no on-suite bathroom and is a shared one for the three rooms available. Don't let that put you off though! The room I stayed in was right next to it, but you'd never know anyone was in it, it's rather quiet. Room was clean and warm on a chilly night. Caroline was the perfect host, very pleasant and greeted us warmly upon our arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. The cooked breakfast the next morning was the perfect start to the day and saw us off on our way with a smile. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay without breaking the bank, I would highly recommend the White Shutters and if I am ever passing through Callander again and need a pillow to rest my head for the night, I will certainly look here first! Thank you Caroline for a very pleasant stay.

Stayed in this comfy B&B for one week.I recieved a friendly reception and felt very welcome. The cooked breakfast each morning was excellant with eggs fresh from a local farm. Great location right in the centre of Callendar.

We found the White Shutters by accident after the Information Center closed its doors just as we arrived, and left us looking around for a place to stay. We parked in the center of ton and this was the second place we saw, asked if we could see the room, and were encouraged to check it out. The room was charming and comfortable , the hostess helpful, and the shared bath was clean and handy. And the rate was the best we had for our entire two week vacation. The B&B is small, and as a result it is quiet and well-run, a very personal experience. It is located in the heart of town, within a stones throw of the only free parking around, and across from the library (free internet) and almost next door to the police station. Within a block were an archeological site of a prehistoric fort, swans in the pond, an ancient cemetery and church, and a nice pub and restaurant. It was even close to a hardware store named :Screw It" which our host said was a "bit cheeky" but amusing.
A lovely town, and we wished we had more time to visit. We only stayed one night, but this was an almost perfect B&B experience. A stroke of great luck to find Carolyn and the White Shutters on our first time in town.

Stayed there for one night as we were playing a gig at a hotel in Calander, Caroline was a very good host and the room was comfy and large and very clean.
Breakfast was excellent with lots of extra toast on offer if reqd.
If you are looking to stay in Calander for a couple of night and are on a budget, there is no better alternative IMO.
Also when i came to settle the bill Caroline offered £12 of the bill as the room was a double yet only I was occupying.
Genuine People, Great food and comfy stay

6 South Church St, just off the main street, across from a 1849 church, a hardware store named Screw It & near police station. Stayed here 2 nights & pleased. I emailed B&B well in advance for a 30 day journey around Scotland, my favorite place to visit. Gracious host greeted me at door by name & a smile. Fair rates, no frills or fou-fou. I'd stay here again. Parking with car in view. Lovely walks nearby, shops, eats & pubs, good base for exploring. Room upstairs was clean, comfy, 2 wicker chairs, TV, good lighting from window overlooking church, tea making, has wash basin, shared bath close with no problems or noise from street. A nice lounge, secure entrance, pleasant dinning room. Other guests were quiet. Great fish & chips shop next door to wine shop where you buy your own drinks for the meal. It was packed with locals. I seem to always meet friendly Scots willing to chat.
