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.
This bold medieval keep may look forbidding but inside it’s full of art and riches – not to mention intriguing tales. The tower dates back to the 14th century and was built to guard a strategically important ferry crossing on the nearby River Forth.
It became the ancestral seat of the Erskine family, the Earls of Mar and Kellie. This family have played a pivotal part in Scotland’s history through the centuries and were loyal supporters of the Stuart monarchs. Mary, Queen of Scots and her son, James VI, both spent part of their childhood here under the guardianship of the Erskine family.
Alloa Tower was lavishly updated by John Erskine, 6th Earl of Mar, who created an 18th-century mansion within the ancient walls.
