Bringing a Pet?

Bringing a Pet on holiday? 
We have just the thing...

As dog owners ourselves we know how important it is for our pets to be regarded as part of the family, and they deserve a break as well.

We don't want to see them cooped up in kennels, we want them to enjoy the countryside, to smell the fresh air, to sniff the trees! A proper holiday with the owners they love.

We have a number of pet friendly holiday cottages that will welcome you and your pet. Scotland is an excellent choice, there is no better place to "let your fur down" or "put your paws up", with endless forest and hill trails to walk and beaches to run free on.

We are only a phone call or email away if you require any assistance in making a choice. We have many dogs that bring their owners back year after year to explore Scotland.

If you choose carefully we are sure your pet will have a great holiday, and you will too.
