134.07 A village situated in a parish of the same name on the Turnpike road from Stirling to Kinross & about 12 miles from the former. The south end of the village is of modern date only having got its being since the erection of the Dollar Institution in the beginning of the Century. The few streets of this portion of the town are uniform & regular while those of the old portion of the Village may be said to be the reverse. It is the fashion in the village to speak of this as the old town & that as the new town while each is described in the Sta. acct. [Statistical account] as Old Dollar & New Dollar respectively. These terms however are never used nor heard except by the villagers at home, never abroad nor by the people in the surrounding district, both portions have the same designation everywhere. The N. [North] or old portion of the village has a picturesque appearance situated on an elevated piece of ground at the base of the Ochils while the S. [South] portion of the town lies more upon the margin of the vale of Devon
