This fabulous castle apartment is perfect for a holiday and is in the ideal setting geographically being close to Gleneagles, Perth, Stirling and Edinburgh. Beautifully restored and refurbished, this delightful first floor apartment within this Victorian Castle, is set within immaculate grounds with outstanding views across to the Ochil Hills. Dollarbeg Castle is the perfect setting for a romantic week away or to be based centrally within Scotland to tour the region.
Over one hundred years old, Dollar is typical of the Scottish village golf courses. Set out by Ben Sayers on the slopes of the Ochils it is unusual in that, dictated by the terrain, there are no bunkers. The signature hole is the Second which is only 97 yards long but it is a blind shot to an elevated green where failure to get up will likely cost you. A short course built before the days of modern technology it is, nevertheless, a fair challenge. Hilly and testing, every shot requires careful thought. A burn features on some seven holes, there are decisions to be made on the tee and every shot has to be played with terrain and the vagaries of Scottish weather in mind. Let those who want to play their target golf play it, this is the traditional variety!
The exploration of the gorges of the Dollar Glen have been popular since Victorian times. The walk crosses many bridges, viewpoints and the impressive Castle Campbell and is a good walk to interest children although care should be taken in many places.
This fine independent museum was set up in 1988 and occupies two floors of an early 19th century woollen mill and has permanent displays about the history of Dollar and its environs.
On the first floor is a reading and research room and on the second floor Dollar Museum has a temporary exhibition programme and new exhibitions that are updated regularly.
The main exhibition for 2018 is “The Dollar Community and the Great War”, marks 100 years since the end of the 1st world war. The second exhibition, The Bicentenary of Dollar Academy, celebrates the 200th anniversary of the founding of Dollar Academy in 1818. The third exhibition display celebrates 30 years of Dollar Museum. The museum which first opened in Easter 1988 in the old school house then moved up to the Castle Campbell hall.
