Dollar itself is one of 4 hillfoot villages along the A91 from Stirling to St Andrews and has shops, pubs and restaurants. It even has its own museum!

Surrounded by the Ochil Hills, nearby Castle Campbell ( a stronghold of the Campbell clan) is a great place to visit on a sunny day. A romantic and beautiful setting - the castle is host to summer weddings. The terraced gardens overlook Dollar and the valley below.

Nearby is Gartmorn Dam Country Park for leisurely walks and for the total opposite Knockhill Motorsport Centre for race events and driving experiences!

For retail therapy, Tillicoultry (only 10 mins away by car) has a shopping outlet village and Sterling

"Welcoming and luxurious"

Our stay at The Ballroom in Dollarbeg Castle was amazing. Everything felt very relaxed from the first email to Sue right through to our departure. Sue's directions were so precise - attention to detail was second to none! Jennifer made us feel very welcome as we 'wowed' each room we were shown. The items in the hamper were delicious - so much so that we had to make a stop at the the wee delicatessen on our way home on Monday! The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. The internet was rather slow but maybe this is the case in the Dollar area. We dined at Hollybank -58, Glasgow Road, Stirling FK7 0PH (01786 812311) on one of the nights. We were given a warm welcome and enjoyed the homely food. It was very busy so booking ahead may be an advantage. We went to the Dormy Clubhouse at the Glen Eagles Hotel (about 20 mins away) for Sunday lunch and spent a lovely afternoon overlooking the King's and Queen's Golf Courses. As we sat at the beautiful dining table having breakfast on the Monday, reflecting on such a wonderful weekend, we had a visit on the lawns from a couple of deer! What more can I say?
