What is Callander’s population?

Estimates from the National office of Statistics for 2020 put the population of people living in the Callander Community Council area at around 3543. However, these estimates are based on 2017 figures and so probably underestimate our 2022 population by around 175-200 using these assumptions we put our population (when all RSH properties are occupied) at around 3720.

The 2001census put our population at 2754, the 2011 census at 3,475. On that basis we estimate the population of Callander will have grown by around 20% since 2011 and 36% since 2001

How many residential properties are there in Callander?

We estimate that there will be around 1725 residential properties in Callander at the end of 2021.
