As well as Castle Campbell
which is but a pleasant walk away for the reasonably
fit, there are many places of historic interest within easy reach.
has arguably the finest castle in Scotland. There are, however, many other interesting places to visit in and around Stirling.
- The National Wallace Monument
is at Causewayhead, near Stirling and is well worth a visit. Braveheart fans will
be in their element.
- The Bannockburn Heritage
at Bannockburn, near Stirling.
- Nearby Culross is the quickest way back to the 16th century in Scotland.
- Cambuskenneth Abbey lies in a loop of the river Forth just a stone's throw across the river from Stirling, but nearer 4 miles by road. King James iii is buried here along with his wife.
- Dunfermline Abbey is the burial place of a number of other kings: Malcolm III, Edgar, Alexander I, David I, Malcolm IV, Alexander III and, best known of all, Robert I aka Robert the Bruce
- Undiscovered Scotland is one of the best sites for planning days out or longer trips in Scotland.
Scotland has a (fairly clunky) search engine which lists many nearby ancient monuments.
- Dollar Museum has exhibitions covering Dollar from prehistoric times to the present day. The reading room has a large collection of research materials.
There is a brief but extensive history of Dollar on the Dollar Community Website.
