Visit Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park
With the beautiful Trossachs countryside on your doorstep, and glorious Loch Lomond not far away either, Poppies Hotel is the perfect place to relax. The Trossachs - known as “The Highlands in Miniature” - where the West Highlands and the Lowlands of Scotland meet - a unique area of unique landscapes, environment, history and tradition which captures the essence of the Scottish nation.
The gateways to this startling landscape, rich in mythology and folklore, are our own village of Callander - and Aberfoyle. Callander has an abundance of craft and woollen shops and the centre of the town cradles the memories and exploits of legendary Highland Rogue Rob Roy MacGregor, local hero and bandit. Explore the scenes and settings of some of Scotland's most stirring tales, both fictional and historical.
And apart from all the events which can be enjoyed in Callander itself, The nearby glorious historic city of Stirling, 14 miles east - offers lively nights out, a wealth of shopping opportunities and a vast array of cultural heritage, in the form of the many listed buildings, the nearby National Wallace Monument and of course, Stirling Castle.
We at Poppies Hotel can add to your enjoyment by providing activities for you and your party. Everything from murder mystery weekends to horse riding can be arranged, ensuring that your time here is never a boring one!
