Castle Campbell.JPG

Discover the drama of this brooding medieval castle, set high above tree- covered ravines and plunging burns on the edge of the Ochil Hills. This was the lowland residence of the powerful Campbell dynasty, where the Protestant reformed came to preach and Mary Queen of Scots came to feast.

What to see and do:

  • Take in the location high above Dollar Glen – Castle Campbell is one of the most dramatically positioned castles in Scotland.
  • Step inside one of Scotland’s best-preserved tower houses, a structure built back in the 1400s.
  • Stroll down the loggia, an open walkway more often found in the warmer climates of Italy and Spain.
  • Explore the attractive terraced gardens where the Campbells could walk and enjoy spectacular views down the glen.
  • Spot ‘John Knox’s pulpit’ in the garden – said to be the site of a sermon given by the firebrand Protestant preacher in 1556.
  • View films about Scottish history made by local experts and enthusiasts from the Forth Valley.
