  Castle Campbell
by margaretvn

Visit Castle Campbell in Dollar. This castle is traditionally known as the "Castle of Doom" and it is beautifully sited at the head of the Dollar Glen. The oldest part of the castle is a well-preserved 15th century tower around which other buildings were built, these include an unusual loggia. There is a walk downhill to the castle from the top small car park area. There are also lower and middle car parking areas with longer walks to the castle. There is a small garden around the castle and the flowers are lovely. Do take a walk in the valley behind the castle as well as you get lovely views of the castle from higher up. The castle is closed on Thursday afternoons and on Fridays and Sunday mornings in winter.

It is 10 miles west of Stirling on the A91
