The story goes back to the early 19th century, when the Gurkha conquest of Kumaon–Garhwal led to the intervention of the British, who moved from the plains of Dehradun to create a military sanatorium in the hills. Today, with its crisp mountain air, charming walks and hillsides covered with gabled bungalows and churches, this quiet nook in the Himalayas is home to leading writers such as Ruskin Bond, Bill Aitken, Allan Sealy, Hugh and Colleen Gantzer, and film personalities Tom Alter, Victor Banerjee and Vishal Bhardwaj. If you turn back the pages of history, Landor’s literary affair is not new.
Many houses in Landour echo themes from Sir Walter Scott's novels, with names such as Kenilworth, Ivanhoe, Waverly and Woodstock (now a famous school). The Scots identified the Himalayan hills and meadows with their glens, braes (slopes) and burns (streams) and named their houses Scottsburn, Wolfsburn and Redburn. The Irish touch is also visible in homes called Shamrock Cottage, Tipperary and Killarney. Charleville Hotel, however, was named after the owner's sons Charley-Billy!
Overnight stay at hotel.
