Dog Friendly Cottages in Scotland

Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Scotland

Deep inside, each one of our four-legged friends is a wild wolf. It doesn't matter how big or small your dog may be, chances are nothing will make them happier than reconnecting with their rugged routes.

From the natural beauty of the Highlands to the rugged coasts of the Isle of Skye, Scotland is where to let your dog run free. Home to stunning landscapes, incredible legends and, in our professional opinion, some of the best dog-friendly holidays.

The world's most stunning country

England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales would argue between them that they're the most stunning. But only Scotland has the certificate to prove it. In 2017, Scotland was officially voted the most beautiful country in the world. One look at its misty mountains and still lochs, and we can certainly see why.

Best of all, it's the kind of beauty our four-legged friends can appreciate. We're not just talking about the sort of scenery that's only good for looking at, we mean rugged hills for bounding down and wild forests for running through. While you enjoy the Scottish landscape by snapping a few Instagram-worthy pics, your pooch can splash through the shallows of Loch Lomond and leap up the mountains of Cairngorms National Park. Booking a self-catering holiday in Scotland means booking something for everyone.

Stunning scenery makes for award-winning walks

If there's one thing we're sure of at Dog Friendly Cottages, it's that stunning landscapes make for incredible walking routes. Scotland is home to hundreds of award-winning walks that offer magnificent views.

Usually, we'd recommend one walking route for you to try out. However, Scotland is so full of fantastic footways, we've got two that we have to mention. The first is perfect for anyone who wants to spend their time scaling as many mountains as possible. The Ring of Steall, in the Mamores, is a short way from Fort William and is a relatively long, 10-mile route that takes you across four of Scotland's most famous peaks.

The second is a tour of the Lost Valley in Glen Coe. Short, laid-back, but still rewarding, this two-and-a-half-mile walk leads you into 'Coire Gabhail', the 230-metre high canyon that describes itself as Scotland's most picturesque attraction.

Dog friendly cottages pair well with luxury

Scotland is something truly special. It's home to just about every kind of getaway, from the culture clad streets of Edinburgh to the wild mountains of the Scottish borders. If you're not sure what exactly you want from your pet-friendly cottages, we're on hand to help.

We know this northerly nation like the back of our hand and we'll find you a luxury cottage in the perfect place. We'll also make sure it comes with all the add-ons you need to turn your getaway from fine to fantastic. If you're craving peace and quiet, how about taking a step closer to nature, and booking a rustic log cabin with a cosy wood burner stove? Or if you're after eating out, ask for a lodge within easy reach of dog-friendly restaurants.

If you fancy an extra slice of luxury, how about having pet-friendly accommodation with a private hot tub and an enclosed garden so you can lie back, pooch by your side and gaze up at the sky. Whatever you're after, let us know. After all, we're here to help your holiday dreams come true.
