  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Really nice, and maybe not one of the most famous, but if you want to combine castles + nature, you need to go there, after visiting the castle you could spend 2 hours walking thought the mountain and seeing some waterfalls. But, the road is not very nice for the car :(
  • Very interesting place to go. Stunning scenery of the dollar falls on the walk up.
  • Breathtaking views and if you can walk to the castle via the glen. Cosy atmosphere and yes bring food and drinks. Works out cheaper and offering is limited.
