The small village of Glenfarg in the county of Perth and Kinross nestles snugly into the Ochil Hills and has long been a popular tourist destination in central Scotland.
The Ochil Hills lie north of the Forth valley and are surrounded by the towns of Stirling, a major tourist destination thanks to Stirling Castle, Alloa, Kinross and Perth. Although there are no peaks from where hikers can enjoy panoramic views over the valley, the gently undulating plateau nonetheless reaches a height of 721m above sea level at its peak, Ben Cleuch, and offers splendid views over the meandering burns and deep gorges of the Dollar Glen, the Alva Glen and the Silver Glen, some of which can only be traversed with the help of wooden walkways and a stout walking stick. It is possible to see the Ochil Hills from Sterling Castle, which sits on a hill above the town.
Campbell Castle dates back to the 15th century and is perched above the town of Dollar, guarding the entrance to the Dollar Glen. It is the lowland seat of the Duke of Argyll and as it was also the seat of the chiefs of the Campbell Clan, Mary, Queen of Scots reputedly visited the castle in the 16th century to drum up support for her cause. The first Earl of Argyll was Lord Chancellor of Scotland and to underline his importance he had the tower house constructed as early as 1489, when he changed the name of the stronghold from Castle Glume to Castle Campbell. The Hall Range was constructed around 1500.
Early workmen constructing the castle would have suffered many injuries when quarrying the stones and bringing them to this challenging site at Dollar Glen. The Clan Campbell chiefs would have expected to lose the odd carpenter, stonemason or quarryman in the process. If your leg got squashed when transporting a cart full of freshly quarried stones to the site of the new tower, you could not send your relatives to the Earl of Argyll and demand compensation like an injured worker could do today, if the method of transport was deemed to be unsafe.
