Notes:

Within the grounds of Dollar Academy you are on private grounds; please be courteous and respectful.

 
 

Meet & Carpark:

If you have at least two cars - the best is to meet at the parking area along the Academy's playing fields (LZ) - (on the right driving up Mylne Av. from A91; just after Thornbank Rd.) - then take the minimum of cars up to Castle Campbell parking areas (follow signs). There are two of such - the main one, on the right, at about alt. 150m; with a smaller 'relief' one further up the road at alt. 200m.

 

Access:

From the upper parking area, walk the road towards the Castle; just before turning south to the castle, take a vague track on the right leading to the Burn of Sorrow (Dollar Glen) to meet with the glen's walking amenities. Take this (right) to go up the glen and cross the burn on a footbridge. You find on your right a gate and track leading west, up hill; becoming wide, often boggy, it leads easily to the summit of Bank Hill.

 
 

Restrictions and Prohibitions:
