Dollar Glen

Dollar Glen

Deep gorges, rushing burns and a rich variety of wildlife

  • Explore the network of woodland walks in the shadow of the Ochil Hills.

  • Watch the evocatively named Burns of Care and Sorrow plunge down tumbling waterfalls.

  • Discover the ruins of Castle Campbell (not NTS), the 15th-century stronghold of Clan Campbell.

  • The wildlife habitats and geology of the glen have made it a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

  • See how many different kinds of lichen you can spot – there are 190 species here and over 100 different types of moss.

Deep gorges, rushing burns and a ruined castle make Dollar Glen the perfect place to ramble away from day-to-day life.

This beautiful stretch of woodland lies east of Stirling and is ensconced in the shadow of the Ochil Hills. There’s a wealth of rare wildlife habitats here – green woodpeckers, dippers and herons are three of the many species of birds who live in the lush, wooded gorges. Wander the Burns of Sorrow and Care or make your way towards Castle Campbell, the 15th-century stronghold of the Earls of Argyll, standing high on a tree-lined slope.
