Castle Campbell And Garden

Dramatically situated above Dollar Glen is the forbidding looking 15th-century fortress, Castle Campbell.

The castle was the lowland stronghold of the powerful Campbell earls of Argyll, who were seldom far from the major political and religious events of late medieval Scotland. Attractive terraced gardens.

Highlights

  • The location in Dollar Glen – this has to be one of the most dramatically positioned castles in Scotland.
  • The 15th-century tower house – one of the best preserved in Scotland.
  • The loggia in the east range – an open arcade of a kind more usually found in the warmer climates of Italy and Spain.
  • ‘John Knox’s Pulpit’ in the garden – where you can picture the preacher haranguing his privileged congregation in 1556.
  • Scottish history videos -  view videos created by local experts and enthusiasts from Scotland's Forth Valley.
