Tenure: Freehold

An impressive Victorian mansion set in about 27 acres of gardens and grounds. Three self-contained apartments with flexible accommodation which provide an additional 7 bedrooms. Equestrian facilities including stables. EPC F

Internally the accommodation is both impressively proportioned and manageably laid out. The main reception rooms on the ground floor which include drawing room, dining room, library and ballroom all have large windows with lovely views across the formal gardens or the woodland policies with the Ochil Hills beyond. They all have ornate plasterwork, working shutters, oak floors and the detailed timber work is varied and of the highest quality. Large marble and oak fireplace with inlaid ebony in the dining room, French walnut framework in the library and the pitch pine panelling in the billiard room/chapel and ballroom are fine examples.

To the east of the ballroom is a 60' (18m) long pillared loggia with stone pillars and balustrades and a tiled floor. There are impressive arched stone entrances at either end.

Stairs off the main reception hall lead down to the lower ground floor where there are a number of rooms including laundry, office, various stores and a catering kitchen.

From the main reception hall a magnificent stairway leads up to a galleried landing on the first floor. On this floor there are 9 principal bedrooms, 3 of which have en suite bathrooms, together with a further bathroom and shower room. There is also a linen cupboard on this level.
On the second floor there are 6 further bedrooms and a bathroom.


Dollar is a particularly popular location set below the Ochil Hills and readily accessible to all the major cities of central Scotland (Stirling and Glasgow, to the west, Perth to the north, and Edinburgh to the south are all within 35 miles). Dollar also has a good range of local shops and hotels, a primary school, golf club, tennis club, and squash club. Stirling, 15 miles to the west, is the major town of Central Scotland. The town is perhaps best known for Dollar Academy – an independent day school and is also within easy reach of top public schools Strathallan, Glenalmond and Kilgraston.

There are a wide range of leisure activities available in the area. Gleneagles (15 miles) to the north through Glen Devon, has extensive sports and leisure facilities including a riding school and its famous golf courses. Gleneagles is also well known as a centre for field sports with many guests staying at the hotel for grouse shooting, pheasant shooting and salmon fishing in the area.
