The walk up to the castle is lovely, with little waterfalls along the way, the castle itself has amazing views! You could sit it the gardens all day looking at them.

Recently got annual Historic Scotland membership and this was first place we visited using it. Informative signs and maps showing development of castle and spectacular views from the top of the tower made this a worthwhile visit.

We have been to Castle Campbell several times. The views are stunning and the children love exploring the castle. It is a bit difficult to get to but it is worth the trip. The staff are always helpful and we always have a good time.

We were lucky with a crisp and frosty but very sunny winter's day to venture up the spectacular glen to this majestic castle. The views are amazing and there is plenty to explore as well both in the castle and the surrounding countryside

I want to visit Castle Campbell on either Wednesday or Thursday May 18th or 19th, 2016. What are the hours on those days? Someone answered this question and gave me the hours for Winter, but May is Spring, not Winter.

Hello, We should arrive in Stirling on May 19, 2016. We hope to take a bus to Dollar and do the walk up to the castle. What days and hours will the castle be open at that time of the year? Is there someone there to give a guided tour is it a self-guided tour only?
