As well as being close to Stirling, Dollar is within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh and St Andrews to the east so you are perfectly situated to take advantage of all Scotland has to offer from this central location. Closer at hand, visit 500 year old Castle Campbell, lowland seat of the Duke of Argyll, where Mary, Queen of Scots once lived in the 16th Century. The walk to the castle is by a spectacular series of paths, bridges and walkways in the deep gorges of the glen and its tributaries. Dollar’s other facilities include a small museum and 18 hole golf course notable for its steep inclines and lack of bunkers.
A twenty minute drive takes you to Stirling which is steeped in history. The historic Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 and Battle of Sherriffmuir in 1715 all helped to shape the history of Scotland and these sites can easily be visited from our properties. Allow yourself to become absorbed by the atmosphere, whilst visiting the magnificent Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and The Battle of Bannockburn Experience, and then recharge your batteries in one of the many cafés, restaurants or pubs.
The surrounding countryside is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts: walking, cycling and paragliding are all on offer on the nearby Ochil Hills. Slightly further away are The Trossachs, Callander, Loch Lomond National Park, Glasgow and Edinburgh providing, therefore, the ideal central touring base for your holiday. Located just over an hour's drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh International airports, excellent motorway connections to the north and south are close by.
Golf being available at every turn: Kings Park's course in Stirling and at least another five within thirty minutes drive. Slightly further afield are the world famous Gleneagles and St Andrew's Old Course.
