Our own experiences of Scotland’s pet friendly holiday scene led us to setting up this guide. Scotland is absolutely massive. The wilder reaches of the Highlands and the views across the sea really do make for some stirring morning walks, and if you are keen to show your dog or dogs the pick of rural walking destinations, there may not be anywhere more appropriate, nor anywhere more exciting, in the whole of the UK.
Lodges offer you that brilliant, rural escape opportunity. Take a look through some of the best log cabins in Scotland and lodges in the wider region to really get a taste for the area! Is there any better accommodation choice than lodges with a private hot tub and patio?
Dog friendly lodges and holiday destinations up in Scotland are also becoming more modern and even more comfy as the years go by. Even a quaint lodge or log cabin location is likely to have mod cons, even if you are far up in the rural reaches close to the Cairngorms National Park! Looking for a hot tub and access to Wi-Fi? What about an enclosed garden where you and your dogs can relax after a long day of exploring the local walks?
What we really like about Scotland and its countryside lodges is the fact that they retain that rural, countryside look while still offering incredible luxury. These are amazingly convenient holiday destinations, not only because they are so close to some of the best attractions and activities that rural Scotland has to offer, but also because they really take you out of the action.
There is a lovely balance to all of the holiday cabins we have found for you in this list. 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. However, while these log cabins and break spots all feel amazingly secluded, they never feel too far from the local action. 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 attractions.
So – take a look through our countryside and coastal holiday lodges up in Scotland, and make sure to bring a dog or two with you. Why should they have to miss out on all the fun? If there’s anyone who’s really going to love the rugged trails and long, winding walks on offer here, it’s your pet pooch. Take them with you!
