Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Dollar Glen – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

Please see our drop-down Facilities below for helpful information about planning your visit.

Castle Campbell is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and operated by Historic Environment Scotland. Both Trust and HES members can enjoy free admission to the castle upon display of their membership cards.

Facilities & access

  • The woodland paths are unsuitable for wheelchairs or children’s buggies.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Dogs welcome

There’s parking at the Quarry car park in Dollar. Parking is free for members.


The glen is a popular place for walkers and the network of paths and trails is easily accessed on foot from Dollar, via the Mill Green, or from the Quarry car park. Please note that there are some relatively steep climbs and care is required on uneven and slippery sections.

Take a walk through the glen past Sochie falls. Admire the stronghold Castle Campbell, impressively positioned above the steep gorges of the Burns of Care and Sorrow.
