Inside the Apartment
Up the grand staircase of Dollarbeg Castle, the Tower apartment is located on the first floor.
There are 5 floors to this spacious accommodation if you include the stunning roof terrace.
Entering the hallway, a staircase rises to the ‘Red’ bedroom, with a few more steps leading up to the main living area and open plan kitchen, master bedroom and family bathroom.
From this level, a spiral staircase leads up to the cinema room with tv and surround sound. Further up the Tower is the third ‘White’ bedroom. Another 22 more steps will lead you to the private roof terrace, with seating in the summer. All round views from here are amazing in all weathers!
Wi-fi is free, although it has to be said that download speeds are slow in this area of Dollar.
Outside the Apartment
Dollarbeg Castle is set in its own grounds which are available for all guests to use. The area is very quiet and perfect for a morning stroll. If anyone likes a good walk, there is a short cut to the main road which carries on to Dollar village. There is plenty of parking space.
Dollar village is only a 5 minute drive away. It has lovely cafes for either breakfast or afternoon tea. Evening meals can be booked at the Bridge Street Kitchen or at the King’s Seat pub.
Castle Campbell -Originally known as Castle Glume, the stone fortress dates from the early 1400s. Around 1465, it passed through marriage to Colin Campbell, 1st Earl of Argyll. The castle sits above Dollar village and its location is one of the most dramatic settings in Scotland.
Just a few of the places to visit…………..
Stirling Castle, the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots, is just 20 minutes away.
Just outside Stirling is the National Wallace Monument - a must see if you’re in the area.
On the other side of Stirling is Blair Drummond Safari Park if you need to entertain the children!
Knockhill Motor Sports Centre ‘Home of Scottish Motorsport is a short 15 minutes drive.
Gleneagles for golf and fine dining takes about 30 minutes.
The Tower Reviews
Dollarbeg Castle is an extraordinary villa to use as a jumping off point to visit all of central Scotland. It is an easy drive into Edinburgh, over to St.Andrews and up into the Highlands. The town of Dollar has a sufficient grocery store, a great butcher, and one of the best restaurants in the area (Bridge Street Kitchen). We planned this trip with 5 family members for over a year.
The castle apartment is extremely well furnished and professionally done. The pictures don’t do it justice! It is challenging to understand the layout of the apartment from the pictures but two of the bedrooms are basically on the main floor with the living room and kitchen and both bathrooms. On the way up to the rooftop terrace, there is a small media room with awesome surround sound. Up some more steps is the 3rd bedroom and finally the access to the terrace. The view from the terrace is 360 degrees of fantastic Scottish countryside with a clear view across the valley of Castle Campbell.
Dollarbeg is a great combination of old world charm, country living, quiet surroundings with all the modern touches. In addition, most of our whisky tours were within an hour or two. Our favorites that we visited were Glengoyne and Edradour...do NOT miss either of these distilleries.
Overall, this was a perfect vacation and I would highly recommend it to truly experience Scotland!

We stayed in the Tower Apartment at Dollarbeg Castle and it was a wonderful trip, from booking the accommodation to the end of our stay. The apartment is amazing. There are three good-sized bedrooms with very comfy beds - my favourite was the top one which has lovely views over the hills. The living room also has amazing views over the hills and interesting little turrets, one with a gorgeous telescope nestled inside. The sofas are huge and comfortable and there are great views of the hills through the large window. The kitchen is extremely well appointed and is a pleasure to use. We were welcomed with a hamper and a bottle of champagne which was a lovely touch. There is a terrace on the top of the tower with sun beds (great if the weather is warm!) and there are amazing 360 degree views from up there. The nearest town is Dollar which is very pretty and you can park and walk up through the Dollar Glen to Castle Campbell which is a must-see 15th century castle. You can carry on walking up the hills to Kings Seat where you can see right out to the Firth of Forth. We walked in sunshine but to the north were dark clouds and a rainbow - fabulous. We loved our stay here and will be back...
