  • If you are fit the walk up Dollar Glen beside the burn is beautiful. Castle is small but well worth a visit, especially if you climb to the top of the tower. Superb views.  more »
  • We loved our experience here. The hike up the glen was wonderful--vigorous enough to make us work a bit but not so hard that we were too exhausted to enjoy the castle ruins. Only two other visitors so...  more »
  • Not the easiest of castles to get to. Once you get to the bottom car park it's up up up for 1500 meters. Then a bit down and up again. Great history in this castle and the views are amazing. Bring wat...  more »

  • Great place to take kids for a ramble. There is a path/walkway up either side of the gorge which takes about 2 hours to complete in its entirety. There are a couple of car parks so you can start at the bottom of you are feeling brave or drive up and start at the mud point. The walk up is really for able bodied, fit individuals and the castle has a shop for refreshments and toilets. A few trees have blown over (July 2016) so the rangers really need to get out with the chainsaws and clear the path but my little boy enjoyed clambering over them and cutting through the growth with the wooden sword we purchased from the castle gift shop!
  • Great stopping place for your walk on the Orchid Hills and the Glencoe Glen. A fully serviced teashop would be nice, but there are rather too few visitors to sustain one. The views from the tower building are superb, and after your visit, when you climb up further the castle is a beautiful landmark.
  • If you are ever in the area this is a great wee walk up the Dollar Glen or take the car to the top carpark and its a short walk to this amazing wee castle nestled at the top of the glen.
  • Very interesting place to go. Stunning scenery of the dollar falls on the walk up.
  • We stumbled upon Castle Campbell quite by accident, but our visit there was fabulous. The Scotland Trust host, Mr Finlay Lumsden, was informative about the castle, had an engaging personality and was passionate about history and his job. He made our time at the castle one of the highlights of our Scotland trip. Bravo!
