About us

Meetings Suspended

Due to the Coronavirus Crisis Club meetings will not take place until further notice, although we hope to have positive news some time in September 2021

Although the Club continues to work behind the scenes, using technology to ensure safe distancing, we have had to suspend all of our regular fundraising activities.  So, if you would like to help us continue to help others, please consider making a donation via PayPal by clicking on the button below.


Welcome from


Our President for 2021/22       



Peter Ireland

A very warm welcome from President Peter Ireland to the Rotary Club of Callander and West Perthshire.

Our club is set within the Trossachs, one of the most beautiful and scenic parts of Scotland.  We are easily accessible from the central belt being just 1 hour from Glasgow and 1 hour 20 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh.  This area is described as "Scotland in Miniature" and visitors to our meetings and events are assured of true Highland hospitality within a scenic setting.

New members are always welcome.  Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 situation, we are currently unable to hold live meetings and so cannot invite you to come along and meet us at this time. However, if you think it might be of interest, why not drop me an email - I'd be delighted to have a chat.  We hope it won't be too long before we are able to resume live meetings - indeed we are hoping to restart in September - when we do you'll be  assured of a warm welcome!


Handover Meeting ...... with a difference


On 29th June, we said thank you to outgoing President Jen Shearer for steering us through a tough year and then we welcomed incoming Club President Peter Ireland, who now starts his second stint in this role.  And for the second year running, we did it via Zoom.  Covid has prevented us meeting face-to-face for nearly over fifteen months now and although it has not stopped us helping out in our community and planning for the future, it has not been without its difficulties.  Thank goodness then for Zoom.  This online conferencing app, known only to a relative few until the Covid outbreak, has been a Godsend.  We have used it to hold Council meetings, our last two AGM and Club Assemblies (at which we make plans for the coming year) and now twice for virtual handovers.
