It is often hailed as 'Gateway to the Highlands' lies on the Highland Boundary Fault and east of the Pass of Lenny, a main route into the Highlands.
Historically this was a settlement where Highlander and Lowlander met. Rising on lands formerly owned by the Drummond family, it expanded as a tourist resort in the 19th century with the introduction of the railway and remains today as a leading centre of tourist activity with its Rob Roy and Trossachs Centre located in the former St Kessog's Church.
There are walks to the Bracklinn Falls on the Keltie Water to the east, and to the west a footpath/cycle track follow the line of the former Callander to Oban railway.
