Castle Campbell

Central Scotland
FK14 7PP

Traditionally known as the "Castle of Gloom", Castle Campbell is beautifully sited in a wilderness setting at the head of Dollar Glen. Below are the rushing waters of the Burn of Care and the Burn of Sorrow in a steep ravine alive with the scent of ransom (wild garlic).

The oldest part of the Castle is a well-preserved 15th century tower, round which other buildings were constructed, including an unusual loggia.

Evidence of a formal terraced garden on the southern slope remains, and the entrance is dominated by the ancient "Maiden Tree".

This property is managed by Historic Scotland.
