Annfield is a beautiful home with a lovely front garden- absolutely charming. Mac and Ania are very friendly and one of them was always available to answer questions or give recommendations.
Annfield offered the nicest buffet choices of any property we stayed at in Scotland. Several cut glass bowls of sliced fresh fruits (a really good variety too), beautifully presented on an antique sideboard along with cereals, fresh breads, yogurt,etc. The hot menu options were delicious also.
There is a comfortable and pretty guest lounge on the second floor where coffee, tea and treats are offered, and there is a coffee, tea and snack tray in each room as well as bottled water. The bathroom had a good-sized shower and large towels. The bed was very comfortable with nice linens. The room was tastefully decorated with designer drapes at the large windows and leather chairs for seating, and there was a chandelier over the bed. The house has private on-site parking. Wifi was available in the room.
A very nice touch was the separate vanity table with a lighted makeup mirror.
When Ania saw that my husband had cut himself shaving that morning, she brought him a bottle of antiseptic solution and a couple of cotton pads to use. I thought that was very thoughtful.
The town of Callander itself is a very nice little place but the real attraction is the number of walking trails and things to do nearby. Mac provided us with a map of several walking trails in the area and we took the short hike to Bracklinn Falls, which was an easy trail through the woods and the falls are quite nice. Doune Castle and Inchmaholm Priory are very close by, as is Loch Katrine. Callander is also at the edge of the Trossachs National Park.
If we had known just how nice it was at Annfield, we would have booked more than one night and altered our itinerary to spend more time in the area.
