    @Laura1989 We went on holiday to Scotland last summer and booked a beautiful dog friendly cottage with this website. First class accommodation on Loch Sunart, we went with our 4 children and 2 dogs and we all had a fantastic time, especially the dogs who spent the whole time swimming in the beautiful Loch, on ocassions with Seals. A really special time was had by all. Hope that helps :) xx

    I think most holiday companies have dog friendly accommodation which are clearly indicated online. There are also a couple of Facebook groups which specialise in holidays with dogs. Not many places will offer only 1 or 2 nights, they usually offer 3 or 4 night low season breaks. It's probably easier to decide on the area you would like to stay in and then ask our friend Google :)

    We are going up to Scotland and staying in Oban for a week in April. We are staying right on the edge Loch Etive.

    When I am looking I always try to find a property with an enclosed garden, just for that extra peace of mind.
    Dornoch on the East coast is beautiful, the beach there is fabulous. So many great places to stay, difficult to chose one.

    There are some lovely beaches on the west coast too - the island of Bute isn't too far from you and has some great walks.

    Yes, it's a good walk round Great Cumbrae. You must go to the cafe at Fintry Bay - there's plenty of room for dogs outside (if it's fine!) and a good beach to walk on too!

    A bit off topic, but I am really looking forward to visiting this place

    3 mile of beach and promenade apparently.
    Just outside Edinburgh.
    The cafe is "dog friendly" in that there is outside space with dog bowls and ties if need be.
    Cakes look good :p

    We had a great holiday up North East at a place called Edderton.
    Middle of nowhere. Secure garden. Comfy bed (main one anyway!). Great walks. Great nearby distillery (Balblair). Stunning family room with view of hills, fields, sheep.......*sigh*.....loved that holiday.......

    Looks pretty booked up for this year though.

    We have just managed to book a week before the Easter holidays on Loch Sunart which is close to Fort William, on a Country Estate in a completely secluded cottage with Loch views and access. The only little issue is it's not a secluded garden, so a long line for Charlie! :rolleyes: Lots of swimming for Hattie & Charlie again, can't wait! x

    We loved it so much last year just Jac we just have to go back, but hoping it won't :rain::rain: so much this time :rolleyes: Also a little worried about the non fenced garden but it's all we could find available where we want to be. Hoping Charlie will be a good boy :rolleyes: Well we can hope can't we! :D x
