The main appeal of Castle Campbell is its location above the lovely village of Dollar. To reach the castle, visitors have to drive along narrow lanes up a steep hill to reach the main car park. From there, a well-defined path leads to the castle, but if you don’t want to walk too much, you can continue to the second car park. This car park only has spaces for a few cars, but the walk to the castle is much shorter and downhill. 

The castle is perched on a hill within the Dollar Glen, between the burns Care and Sorrow, and this situation gives it an eerie and very isolated atmosphere. It has an intact Tower House, but the once grand banqueting hall is now in ruins. Children will probably get a thrill from discovering the pit prison in which enemies would be thrown. You can very well imagine how living here would have been in the 16th century and the views from the roof top are well worth the effort of the climb. The gardens are lovely and very colourful in the summer. 

A few country walks start from the Castle, so you can explore Dollar Glen at leisure. 

An interesting fact is that the caretaker lives in the castle as accommodation comes with the job!
