Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Scotland
Scotland is home to some of the wildest and most remote places in the UK. If you and your dog love exploring the great outdoors together then this might be the perfect place for you. From the Outer Hebrides to the Scottish Borders, there are some pet-perfect places just waiting for you and your four-legged friend. The further north you venture, the more remote and wild Scotland becomes. The towns and villages of the Highlands are just the place if you want some peace and quiet on your pet-friendly break. Further south there is more hustle and bustle; choose from a selection of much-loved cities including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee. The smattering of islands to the west of the mainland are particularly popular; home to breathtaking beaches and Scottish charm. Although each area is unique, wherever you choose you’ll have a wonderful Scottish holiday with your dog.
Dog-friendly things to do
Dotted around the coast there are over 90 beaches that will welcome dogs all year round; not just in the winter! Whatever the season you can enjoy long walks together, soaking up the fresh sea air and even paddling in the waves if the weather is good. It’s not only the coast that makes Scotland a dog-friendly paradise. This country is also home to a collection of much-loved trails, including the West Highland Way and the Great Trossachs Path. Not only that but if you and your pup really love exploring the great outdoors together, in Scotland you are welcome to roam almost anywhere. While you appreciate the dramatic views and fresh air; your dog will wag their tail in delight at the new smells to sniff and new paths to bound along.
Scotland isn’t only pretty scenery and wide, open spaces. Don’t forget the cultural gems and rich history when planning a trip here.
