Kilmahog is on the A84 just past Callander heading toward Kingshouse. Turn left at kilmahog onto the A821 past pub on left and over small bridge. There is a car park on the left surrounded by trees. About 100 yards further up the A821 on the right is a larger forrestry commission car park. Both are shielded from the road and easy staggering distance to the pub. There are a few walks in this area. If you stay on the A821 there are more places to park up for the night.

My partner and I spent the weekend in the Callandar area and stayed in the car park just past outside Kilmahog on your recommendation - great spot, not another soul there in the evening, and literally two minutes' walk to the Lade Inn. Had a brilliant meal there before going through to the tiny bar and enjoying some heather ale and free live music for the rest of the night.

To compensate for all the beer we consumed, we walked up the Crags at Callandar on Saturday and cycled along Loch Venachar on Sunday - I'm not very fit any more so I was well and truly tired out by the end of it! Definitely worth it, though.

Will have to stop here on my next trip later this year, been past it many times, the name always makes me laugh,"KILMAHOG" :D sounds perfect for a stopover, and pub sounds inviting.

Happy Camping:)

Sounds good, we're going up at end of April for a week...and its handy for the Dukes pass too!!!

Is it do-able in a MH?

Heard about it on a motorbike forum as 'awesome':eek:

We regularly wild camp just down the road from the dukes pass around the loch achray area. We have seen a lot of motorhomes coming and going in the direction of Aberfoyle..ie up and down the Dukes pass.

It has also come to my attention that overnight parking can be had at the tossachs peir at loch Katerine..for a few quid...do not know any more details as yet.

I scanned this site/post last week to find out where we could stop overnight on our first campervan outing bound for Fort William. We decided on Callander / Kilmahog which we know very well. I noticed someone posted that they stopped in the car park of the The Lade Inn, Restaurant, Public House, Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland (fantastic pub / restaurant / real ale shop) in Kilmahog.

Having coward away from the darkly lit car park 2 mins over the bridge from the Lade Inn, I asked the Land Lady if she minded us parking up for the night in her car park – as I wanted to sample a few of their delicious beers. Not a problem she said, you’re more than welcome. Needless to say the beer was that good that we were the last to leave (I tried them all) – and whilst others complained about the walk back to Callander we counted 12 steps from the pub door to our warm quite bed.

If you find yourself in Callander / Kilmahog, and you’re looking for a place:

1) With genuine welcoming staff
2) Truly delicious food
3) The best selection of beers (130 varieties in their real ale shop next door)
4) A quite place to park up for the night

then the Lade Inn is the place for you…
