Dollar is a village in Clackmannanshire in the Central Belt of Scotland. The scenic glen leading up to the castle is the reason to visit.
Dollar has no connection to the unit of currency - that word derives from silver mined in Joachimsthal in Bohemia, hence silver thalers. The village name may mean dolorous or gloomy - the ravine of the glen can certainly be a dark and draughty place in winter. Nearby Stirling likewise has no connection with £ sterling.
