Callander & West Perthshire

Scottish History

We meet in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Callander on the 2nd Friday of the month from 10.00am - 11.30am. There is a charge of £1.00 per person per meeting to cover the Hall rental. The meetings are a mixture of Group Research, Visits and Talks. For each of the Group Research meetings one person from the Group has volunteered to take the lead and then others can contribute their own research. It is up to each person to decide whether they contribute to the Group Research or not.

How to find us

To find St Andrew’s Church look for the sign just after Tesco on the right hand side of the road as you are driving out of Callander on the A84 towards Strathyre and Lochearnhead. If you are coming from Strathyre the church is just after The Old Rectory Hotel. St Andrew’s Hall is behind St Andrew’s Church. Follow the path round to the right. We are a short walk from the bus stop in Station Road and the main Car Parks at Station Road and The Meadows. There is limited parking at the Church and on the road outside. Toilets are available if required.
