'The Glen' Apartment




The Location
Nestling at the foot of the Ochils some 14 miles east of Stirling on the A91 Dollar derives its name from the Celtic language - "dolour" or sadness. It is hard to understand how such a lovely spot came to be given such an unfortunate name. There is a claim that the answer lies in a local folk tale which recounts the story of a princess who died of a broken heart in the castle there - Castle Gloom. Despite this, Castle Campbell as it now is, must surely be one of the most picturesquely situated in Scotland. Set against the splendid backdrop of the hills and accessed through Dollar Glen, a wooded valley carrying the "Burn of "Sorrow" and the "Burn of Care", it commands a panoramic view of the Devon valley and beyond to the Forth estuary and the Pentland hills.

Local Attractions
Local attractions include Castle Campbell, Knockhill Racing Circuit, the Dollar Academy and the Dollar Museum next door. The walk through Dollar Glen to the Castle is wonderful whatever the weather and just past the Castle you find yourself in the uninterrupted wilderness of the Ochils. Edinburgh and Glasgow are both within an hours motoring. No trip to Scotland is complete without visiting some of the most beautiful countryside in Europe. You can head north to Perth taking in Scone Palace and further up the A9 to Pitlochry. Heading west you'll find Loch Lomond and the Trossachs - Scotland's first National Park is well worth a visit. There is plenty of opportunity for sport in the area with over 30 golf courses within an hours drive, including the world class venues of St Andrews and Gleneagles.
