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. Callander's incorporation into the National Park necessitated a broadening of the editorial remit and Callander's community has grown and become increasingly diverse. Nevertheless, the aims set out in the first issue remain as close to our hearts as ever.
Committed to equality, the publication exists to disseminate information about community-related news, concerns and events without discrimination on grounds of age, race, colour, creed, gender, disability or orientation.
If you are a part of the Callander community -
The Ben Ledi View belongs to you.
Not affiliated to the local Community Council or Development Trust, the BLV is an independent voice for residents and organisations in Callander which seeks to reflect the views of Callander's people.

The next issue will be published in April 2021.
