New Years Day

As New Year's Day was so nice there was time to go for a walk to work up an appetite for dinner. I decided to go to Dollar. Dollar is a small town in Clackmannanshire, Scotland. It is one of the Hillfoots Villages, situated between the Ochil Hills range to the north and the River Devon to the south. 

The walk was from the town of Dollar through Dollar Glen to Castle Campbell. The castle was originally known as Castle Gloom, possibly deriving from the Scottish gaelic:  glom, meaning a chasm, and referring to the narrow gorges to either side of the site.
