Facilities & access

Car Parking Display on History Picnic Area Self Service Tea/Coffee Shop Strong Footwear Recommended Toilets Visitor Centre Accessible by Public Transport Children's Quiz available

Parking: Due to the condition of the access road we would advise visitors to leave their vehicle at woodland quarry car park on Castle Road and make their way on foot.

Approach to site: Is either using a footpath through NTS Dollar Glen or along a tarmac road for 800m with a gradient of up to approximately 1:8. As there is no footpath along the tarmac route, care should be taken as there may be vehicles using the road. There is a gate beside the cattle-grid and a wooden bridge with handrails over the burn. Due to the condition of the access road we do not advise visitors to drive beyond the woodland ‘quarry’ car park on Castle Road.

Reception/Visitor Centre: The reception area does not have step-free access.

Monument (section by section): The Castle courtyard is cobbled.  The cellar floor of the tower, which contains an interpretation display, is accessed via a straight timber stair of 14 steps with a handrail.  The upper levels are explored by a stone turnpike stair 1000mm wide and 85 steps to the top floor.  This is a historic stair, and in places the steps have worn with time so that not all of them are level of square.  The stairs have a fixed handrail and light levels beyond the first floor are dependent on natural light, and as such may be very low particularly in winter.

Grounds: The grass terrace at the front of the property offer superb views of the surrounding landscape.  The route to the lower terrace is cobbled and steep.

Guided Tours: Guided Tours available in summer – please phone site for details.

Facilities: Toilet.  (down four steps).
