Pet-friendly holiday cottages Scotland: two perfect locations

A cosy log cabin in the heart of the forest is a great base for any pet-friendly break. Offering total seclusion, peace and quiet - and plenty of space to roam free. 

All 11 of our exclusive forest locations are situated deep in beautiful woodland and are pet-friendly. We have two stunning locations in Scotland ideal for pet-friendly holidays

Ardgartan Argyll is located in Argyll Forest Park which is recommended by dog lovers as a great place for woodland walks. Think stunning loch views, lush pine forests and evenings spent watching the woodland come to life. This is somewhere you can really get an authentic feel for Scotland.

Our location at Strathyre is often nicknamed ‘the gateway to the highlands’. Expect panoramic views of Loch Lubnaig, hours wandering through the forest glades and lots of wild, untamed landscapes to explore nearby

Both of our Scottish locations offer cabins with lochside views and outdoor hot tubs perfect for stargazing as the night draws in. There’s plenty of pet-friendly cabins to choose from too. With room for the dog basket and toys, underfloor heating ideal for cosy evenings and exciting dog walks that begin at your doorstep, it’s the ultimate dog friendly break.
