Where do we even start when it comes to recommending family attractions, walks and activities up in Scotland?

Above all, holidaying in Scotland is fantastic for dogs and their owners. Whether you’re exploring the Trossachs or taking your time to settle into the quaint sights of the Clyde Valley, no two stays in the region are ever quite the same.

What’s more, a luxury countryside or coastal holiday up in Scotland might be just what you need to ease yourself into the culture, the sea views and the dramatic landscapes.

Loch Lomond

Lodges set within Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park make the ideal getaway place for adventure enthusiasts and those looking for relaxing, dog friendly holidays.


For the best pet friendly holiday places, travel up towards the Scottish Highlands, and appreciate the Cairngorms National park for all its walking trails and cascading beauty. Or, if you prefer to take in a bit of golf, why not go to Scotland’s fairway capital – St Andrews?


Try booking log cabins here if you like the sound of stunning Lochside properties and rural off-the-beaten-track lodges. Especially popular in winter when the snow falls, the price can be high, but for a snowy river lodge, it’s worth it.

Last Word

Our experiences with Scotland’s pet friendly holiday scene led us to set up this guide. Lodges offer you that brilliant, rural escape opportunity. Look through some of the best log cabins in Scotland and lodges in the broader region to taste the area! 

As the years go by, dog friendly lodges and holiday destinations in Scotland are also becoming more modern and even more comfy. Even a quaint lodge or log cabin location is likely to have mod cons, even if you are far up in the rural reaches. 

What we like about Scotland and its countryside lodges is that they retain that rural countryside look while offering incredible luxury. 

These are amazingly convenient holiday destinations. They are so close to some of the best attractions and activities Scotland has to offer, but also because they take you out of the action.

All of the luxury log cabins and chalets in our guide take you deep into the heart of green, coastal Scotland – whether you’re taking a break in the Clyde Valley or are looking for a brilliant day or two in Loch Ness. 

That means you can always feel like you are right in the middle of nowhere, but you’ll still be able to drive only a few minutes to local pubs, cafes and restaurants.
