Advice on visting Edinburgh on a trip to Scotland

We will be spending 4 nights in Scotland next year and want to do a day in Edinburgh then proceed to Callandar. The question I have is would you stay the night in Edinburgh then proceed to Callandar or go to Callandar and commute into Edinburgh?

Are you staying overnight in Callandar? We stayed in a wonderful B&B @ www.westerton.co.uk if you don't have reservations already.

It partly depends on Where you are coming from and how you are arriving.

Flying in? - if so GLA or EDI? Long haul or just up from England?

Driving up - from where?

Then in that case -- visiting Edinburgh first makes most sense IMO. Land at EDI, take the airport bus into the city, explore and spend the night car-less. Next day collect your rental car (either in the central city or take the bus back out to EDI and pick up the car there) and drive out to Callander.
