The festival will celebrate the area’s railway heritage and legacy with vintage vehicles, a Victorian market, model railways, films, talks, exhibitions and lots more.
This section of line from Balquhidder to Killin Junction was cited for closure in November 1965, however a landslide to the south of the viaduct brought a slightly premature end to services on 27th September. Since then, much of the parapet on the west side has been lost, but full-length handrails were installed in 2001 as part of the conversion works to host the Rob Roy Way footpath.
The old railway now forms part of the National Cycleway 7 and provides some spectacular views looking down onto Loch Earn. Walkers regularly use the old railway for walks from Lochearnhead to Killin and the surrounding area.

If you are planning a holiday here in central Scotland at the end of September in one of our self-catering holiday cottages why not consider going to the festival in Callander for what promises to be a fascinating insight into the history of the Callander and Oban railway.
