The Scottish Real Ale Shop
Situated in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, the Scottish Real Ale Shop in Callander has been selling over 100 different Scottish beers since 2006. A one-stop shop for Scottish beers, real ale festival and brewing information, this is where to buy that elusive bottle from the Hebrides or delicious blonde from Islay. They hold a beer festival every year and summer tastings. Call into neighbouring Lade Inn – part of the family operation – for some lunch or try the beers produced for them by Black Wolf Brewery (which used to be called Traditional Scottish Ales): Waylade, Ladeback, Ladeout or The Chase.
