Bridge House is conveniently situated in the centre of Dollar, an undiscovered gem of a village in central Scotland. Dollar is on the A91 road between Stirling and St. Andrews, both of which are well worth a visit.

Independent travelers who want the choice and freedom which comes with making their final choices of where to linger, when to hurry on, what to see and where to stay can have the security on booking with us and knowing that their first night or two's accommodation is secure and that they will have a good base for setting off on their tour. We are within easy reach of both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports and the Ferry Terminal at Rosyth for the ferry from Zeebrugges.

Directions from all major transport entry points:

For major golf tournaments at Gleneagles (20 minutes) or St Andrews (50 minutes) , Dollar is a convenient base.

Music fans who love festivals, but whose bones are too old for camping or who just can't forgo hot showers will find us very convenient for T in the Park (12 minutes) , Scotland's major rock music festival.

Similarly, when festival fever hits Edinburgh with: The Fringe, Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh Book Festival, Edinburgh Film Festival, Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh International Jazz & Blues Festival, Edinburgh International Television Festival, Edinburgh International Entertainment Festival, Edinburgh Art Festival and finally, the Festival of Politics the commute from here may be your best option for accommodation.

Solsgirth (5 Minutes) is a very beautiful and popular venue for weddings. We are well situated for guests wishing to stay in the area.

Dollar is home to the renowned Dollar Academy and parents of pupils will also find us a very convenient place to stay when they come to visit.

For tourists, Dollar is an ideal stopping place: between several centres of interest (St. Andrews, Stirling, Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow) with much to do and see locally and well appointed for all practical needs (Bank, Post Office, Cash Machine, good range of shops).

Dollar has all the necessities of life, fine places to eat, a bank, ATM machines, and so much more. The award winning Harviestoun beer has its origins in Dollar and continues to flow freely in the local bars and hotels.

Castle Campbell sits proudly above the village as it has done for 600 years and is but a pleasant stroll away up Dollar Glen.

Dollar folks of times gone past must have had a particularly gloomy outlook on life:
  • The Castle was originally known as "Castle Gloom"
  • The two burns which join below the castle are still known as the "Burn of Sorrow" and the "Burn of Care".
  • 'Dollar', itself, is a corruption of the French word "Douleur".

Perhaps, they just wanted to keep the place to themselves and keep visitors away. "Here be dragons" and all that.

Whatever the reasons behind the apparent gloom and despair of so long ago, Dollar is today a warm friendly place and is a fine place to stop and linger.

The undiscovered Scotland website has some good information about Dollar, and is a very useful resource for anyone planning a trip in Scotland.
