  • National trust and historic Scotland members free. Charges not shown till you get to castle which is a bit of a walk if you are not fit. Steep in parts. Also accessible up through the glen for the more adventurous.
  • A beautiful place to visit.Ideal for a picnic. Not the easiest walk up Dollar Glen which is steep and the rugged pathways would be slippery on a wet day so take care.
  • Absolutely stunning castle and location. Loads to explore and plenty of walks round about too.
  • Castle in glorious setting. Walk up the glen from Dollar for an interesting approach.
  • A beautiful place that never fails to deliver in its beautiful setting, no matter the weather. Do take a short walk to Souchie Falls. Only a few minutes but well worth it.
