Holidays in Scotland
By staying in a dog-friendly cottage in Scotland, your dogs can enjoy the beautifully untamed landscapes, spectacular mountain peaks and glittering lochs just as much as you. From luxurious cottages in the country full of character to cosy fisherman cottages by the coast, Scotland is a spectacular destination for a dog friendly holiday.
Scotland’s rich and diverse landscape is the perfect destination for dog-friendly holidays and you should check out our
guide here. Its coastline is littered with beautiful sandy beaches where your dogs can chase balls through the surf, while the inland landscape is carpeted with thick forests, criss-crossed with exciting trails to explore. Your four-legged friends are welcome to stay in any one of our dog-friendly cottages in Scotland and we have lots to choose from. Take your pick of cozy rural retreats for two and bring your pet on your couples’ break away, or select a luxury Scottish cottage that’s ideal for families or larger groups.
What will you choose to do on your perfect pet-friendly holiday in Scotland?
How about hunting for Haggis in the Scottish Highlands or digging up clams on the beaches of Orkney? Energetic dogs will love to explore the towering mountains, picking their way along rocky trails as you reach the summit together. Take them along while you enjoy cycling the many dog-friendly routes at the 7Stanes and introduce your furry friends to the delights of the Scottish Borders countryside, or relax in village retreats in Central Scotland close to dog-friendly pubs.
Scotland has a long list of tourist attractions where dogs are most definitely welcome. Castle Mey in Caithness – best known as the Queen Mother’s former home – opens its fabulous gardens to visiting pets. It even provides a dedicated car park with plenty of shade to keep your dogs (and vehicles) cool. In Innerleithen, the Robert Smail Printing Works tells the history of a local printer in a living museum that welcomes well-behaved dogs inside, and in Castle Douglas you can share a Cream o’Galloway ice cream before strolling the dedicated dog trail through the countryside.
