CMC has been working closely with the Callander Landscape Partnership team to produce an Interpretation Plan that aims to transform the Callander area into the ‘outdoor capital of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park’.
The project aims to leave a lasting legacy, helping the local community to share landscape stories with the public. We will help them introduce a series of heritage hubs that share the treasures of Callander’s rich landscape and help create a sense of connection between the surrounding area and the town centre. Ultimately these will work together, forming an Eco museum that will evolve and grow over time. There is much to celebrate with Callander’s connection to the Highland Boundary Fault, its rich archaeology, natural heritage and Victorian history. Our ambition is to communicate what the landscape means to people, now and in the past, through language, poetry, archives and oral history.
The next phase of the project will focus on a producing a series of interpretation panels both in the town and in the wider landscape, due for completion in the summer of 2020. These represent one layer in a range of experiences that include a visitor centre, guided tours, events and printed and digital trails.
