Pet-friendly holiday cottages in Scotland where your dog will be most welcome

pet friendly self-catering holidays in Scotland where your dog can accompany you.

Going away for a self-catering holiday in Scotland  and looking for a good quality cottage or comfortable lodge where your dog is an honoured guest?

There is plenty of dogs welcome holiday accommodation all over Scotland including some of the best on this page. It is the stunning countryside and secluded places in Scotland that attracts so many visitors. People simply adore the Western Isles, the Isle of Skye and the lonely beaches. Find remote cottages in natural rural settings untouched by human hand, watch seals on the shore, spot shoals of dolphins out at sea and spot sea birds galore. Scotland is where it is possible to share a beach with only an orange footed oyster catcher, to find driftwood washed up in a gale for an unusual souvenir of your Scottish holiday. Dogs adore walks on isolated beaches  and in places where it is possible to walk for miles without meeting a single soul.

Many remote Scottish holiday cottages can be quite simple but comfortably furnished and may have a log burner to take the chill out of the evening air.  Your dogs would be quite happy with a rug in front of the fire and the prospect of more walks along the coast or hills during your stay.

There is so much awe-inspiring scenery in Scotland; magnificent beaches, the mountains of the Highlands, the tall granite cliffs of Aberdeenshire, the clear rushing waters of salmon rivers such as the Spey and the Dee. Much of Scotland is forested with plenty of way-marked paths and bridleways – excellent for people walking their dogs.

There are several popular Scottish places for cottage breaks that the Scots themselves love and regularly visit, these include the lochside village of Pitlochry, the big lochs of Lomond and Ness, Aviemore for its tourist attractions, Ballater and nearby Balmoral which are surrounded by the Cairngorms and mixed woodland.

It’s case of finding that pet-friendly holiday cottage in a part of Scotland that you would like to visit.  There are fabulous places of natural interest all over Scotland. It is also possible to book a series of cottages for short breaks and tour, say south west Scotland or the Borders.  Read more about Scotland or if there is a cottage that you like shown on this page, call the cottage owners and ask them what there is to do and the best places to see in their area.
