Ben Ledi View

Callander Community Newspaper

Welcome to Ben Ledi View community newspaper


Runner-Up BEST NEWSPAPER (circulation 500+ category) at the Community Newspaper of the Year awards 2016.



Founded in 1987, the Ben Ledi View is a free community newspaper produced and distributed entirely by volunteers (some of whom are shown above). It is named after Ben Ledi, the 867m hill that towers over the town of Callander, Scotland.

Produced in Callander by Callander for Callander, the BLV has undergone several facelifts over the years, and Callander's incorporation into the National Park necessitated a broadening of the editorial remit. Since the early days, Callander has grown and the community has become increasingly diverse. Nevertheless, those aims set out in the first issue remain as close to our hearts as ever. We are committed to equality and the paper exists to disseminate information about community-related news, concerns and events fairly, without discrimination on grounds of age, race, colour, creed, gender, disability or orientation.

We are all part of Callander - and this is our community's newspaper.

The Ben Ledi View is an independent voice for residents and organisations in Callander. It is not affiliated to the local Community Council or Development Trust and seeks to reflect the views of all Callander's residents.
