Scotland is a fantastic choice for a pet friendly holiday with everything from beautiful beaches, open countryside to theme parks and castles on offer. Choosing where to go in Scotland is the only tough decision you will have to make. Some of Scotland's finest beaches can be found on the coast between Dunbar and Edinburgh. Gullane beach in particular is recommended to families and has sweeping sands and lovely scenery.
Edinburgh is on of Scotland's most popular tourist destinations and has many cultural attractions as well as fantastic shops and vibrant nightlife. The Northern Highlands and the quaint Isle of Skye and Mull are recommended for those seeking peace and quiet and are also popular with nature lovers. Mull is especially quiet and cottages here tend to be remote, this location is perfect for a relaxing retreat.
It is not hard to see why the region is so popular with those seeking a pet friendly holiday. There are so many pet friendly attractions in the region that each day can be spent doing something totally different. You can spend one day exploring vast sandy beaches and dramatic coastal paths, another visiting a historic castle or chapel and the next visiting a 17 Century fortress, theme park or stately home. The countryside here is also stunning with plenty of cycle paths and walking trails to explore with energetic dogs!
There are many Pet friendly cottages in Scotland to choose from whether you are looking for a luxurious detached pad with a huge garden or a quaint terraced property with plenty of original charm. 3 Lubis is one of our favourite cottages for small families. Situated just outside of the attractive village of Kilmartin, the property sleeps 4 and is beautifully decorated. The good sized garden is a real bonus and the location close to Kilmartin House Museum and visitor centre and the town of Lochgilphead is hard to beat.
We also recommend Homestone Farm. This property is ideal for large family groups and can sleep 11 in total! The impressive house has a grand kitchen, a lovely conservatory with countryside views and a large mature garden. Both of these cottages welcome dogs and provide ample space for them to run around and plenty of walking opportunities locally.
