Castle Campbell

Castles

Dollar, Clackmannanshire, Clackmannanshire, FK14 7PP

    Formerly known as the Castle of Glooms, this castle is beautifully sited upon a narrow bridge overlooked by the Ochil Hills.

    The 15th century fortress of Castle Campbell is dramatically situated above Dollar Glen. The oldest part is a well-preserved 15th century tower around which other buildings were constructed, including an unusual loggia.

    Castle Campbell was once the home of the powerful Campbell earls of Argyll, and has connections with historical figures such as John Knox and Mary Queen of Scots.

    Today you can explore Castle Campbellā€™s visitor centre, cobbled courtyard and interpretation displays.

    There is a grassed terrace, although access via the cobbled yard cannot easily be crossed for visitors with wheelchairs. The castle interior is not suitable for visitors with physical disabilities. Disabled drivers can, with care, drive up to the door of the property.
