Those who want to go walking
in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park can enjoy a new walking trail established by locals.
The Callander Heritage Trail plots a route through the heart of what was Scotland's first planned town, with the aim being to help preserve conservation areas and boost the local economy.
Patricia Macinnes of the Callander and District Heritage Society said the route, due to open next month, "will enable both local residents and visitors to see Callander in a new light and to enjoy exploring its rich past".
Such a route may also encourage visitors to don their hiking boots and walk in the countryside around Callander, which lies in the lowland part of the park, south of the Highland fault line that runs across Loch Lomond.
Earlier this month, the national park authority unveiled a wide range of routes in its Core Paths map, with 455 miles of routes along which to walk, cycle or ride horses.
