Situated above the town of Dollar, Dollar Glen offers exhilarating walks, deep gorges, cascading waterfalls and an abundance of plants and wildlife.
Lying at the foot of the Ochil Hills, the glen is easily accessible in less than 45 minutes from either Edinburgh or Glasgow making it the ideal location for a family stroll. In fact, the area has been a popular destination for walkers since the Victorian era.
There is a range of fascinating walks that take visitors past deep gorges and high waterfalls amid an abundant plant life. it is this range of wildlife habitats and important geological features that led to the areas designation as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
One of the main attractions of the glen is the spectacular 15th century Castle Campbell which has been owned and maintained by the National Trust for Scotland since 1953.
Castle Campbell, run by Historic Scotland, provides toilet facilities, snacks for sale and a hot drinks machine.
Accessible Parking or Drop Off Point
Due to the condition of the access road we would advise visitors to use the public parking facilities at the ‘quarry’ car park and make their way to the castle on foot.
There are two public car parks (not National Trust for Scotland) and disabled parking available on the road to Castle Campbell, or there are public car parks in the village of Dollar.
Dogs must be kept under control during lambing season in spring and summer.
