Dollar Glen

This magical glen offers an enchanting outdoor activity suitable for couples, families, or small groups. Set against the majestic backdrop of Castle Campbell, this ancient chasm of volcanic rock is one of Scotland's finest and most accessible canyoning adventures. Its appeal lies in the variety of jumps, slides, and abseils, all accessible from a well-maintained footpath. This makes it suitable not only for experienced canyoneers but also for beginners, families, and adventure seekers alike. Within an hour from Edinburgh, Glasgow, or Fife, Dollar Glen provides a fantastic half-day experience or, when combined with Alva Glen, a truly epic adventure weekend. go to Dollar Glen location page to find out more
