Best dog friendly hotels in Scotland

Between Highland strolls and warm hospitality, few places are better for a dog-friendly holiday than Scotland. From the mesmerising beauty of the lochs and mountains to woodland laced with walking paths and mystical wildlife that roams free, this is a destination that captures the imagination and keeps guests, as well as their four legged friends returning time and again.

Scenic walking routes allow you to work up an appetite, as you watch leaping salmon at the Hermitage and Black Linn Falls, or explore Scotland's first National Park - Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. You might even head on a dog friendly adventure to the Isle of Arran, home to the UK's only island-based country park. Meanwhile, Scotland’s abundant dog-friendly pubs with rooms, cafes and restaurants with rooms serve a feast of local delicacies to enjoy while you rest. We suggest you seek out Cullen Skink (a classic Scottish soup), its many craft gins, porridge done like you’ve never had it before, and of course a wee dram of whisky.

In addition, lots of Scotland’s local attractions welcome dogs as well. For example, you might enjoy the quiet splendour of Melrose Abbey in the Scottish Borders or explore the mighty Fort George artillery fortification based near Inverness. Several of these dog friendly hotels in Scotland are also some of the best dog-friendly hotels in the UK.
