Castle Campbell has all the look of a fairytale castle set high among the rich woodland of Dollar Glen. Built on a high mound with steep ravines on three sides, the first sighting of this castle is truly breathtaking.

Essentially a 15th century castle with later additions, the castle was acquired by the powerful Campbells of Argyll as a stronghold near to the Royal court at Stirling Castle.

The castle is now managed by Historic Scotland, and admission tickets can be purchased from their website.
