You will find all these and more at our dog friendly hotels.

At Scotland’s Personal Hotels we have over 20 hotels across Scotland that are dog friendly with many going the extra mile to make sure you and your dog have a great stay.

Having two dogs myself I understand the needs of dog owners. Many hotels sell themselves as dog friendly but when you arrive you are given a list of things you and your dog cannot do.

Dog friendly to us means exactly that. We want to make sure you and your dog/dogs enjoy your stay without many restrictions. Almost all our hotels provide dog baskets as well as food and water bowls.  The only restriction our hotels tend to have is no dogs during food service in the restaurants.  We need to make sure that all guests are happy and a restaurant full of dogs might not be very relaxing when the smell of lovely food is served – a rather large temptation for all dogs!!   Our hotels offer other eating options for example bar or lounge areas where you can eat and your dog can keep you company. 

Offering easy access to the outside is very important and where possible dog friendly rooms are on the ground floor offering quick and easy access outside.  In some hotels, bedrooms open right out into the gardens, just perfect for the early morning walk!!

Our dog friendly hotels are located in the following parts of Scotland:

1.  The South of Scotland including Scottish Borders and Dumfries & Galloway.
2.  West Coast of Scotland including Argyll.
3.  The Central Belt of Scotland including St. Andrews and Perthshire.
4.  The Highlands and Islands of Scotland including Raasay, South Uist& Loch Ness. 

In the Scottish Borders we have The Wheatsheaf Hotel, Swinton. Overlooking the village green, the surrounding countryside offers many great walks for you and your dog/s. Cringletie House hotel near Peebles & Edinburgh, has acres of gardens to explore. The Tontine Hotel in Peebles and Caddon View House, Innerleithen both offer wonderful accommodation for you and your canine friends.

In Dumfries & Galloway we have two stunning country house hotels - Blackaddie House Hotel &Trigony House hotel both very dog friendly and both serving great food.

On the west Coast of Scotland we have Inveraray Inn Inveraray, Ardsheil Hotel, Campbeltown and Argyll Hotel overlooking a stunning beach just perfect for a walk along the beach first thing in the morning.

In the Central Belt we have Rufflets Country House Hotel set it its own gardens yet only 5 minutes to the centre of St. Andrews, Bridge of Lochay hotel on the outskirts of Killin, Clachan Cottage Hotel overlooking Loch Earn, Murrayshall Hotel & Golf Course with acres of grounds to explore and just outside of Perth.

Further north into Aberdeenshire we have Loch Kinord Hotel and Glen Lui Hotel with the wonderful Speyside countryside on the doorstep ready for you to explore.

Across the Highlands we have The Lovat Hotel overlooking Loch Ness and Moorings Hotel overlooking The Caledonian Canal as well as Orasay Inn on South Uist and Raasay on the Isle of Raasay- all great locations for a short break with your four legged friends!

Mark’s Top 5 Dog Friendly Hotels:

Wonderful setting right on the beach just perfect for walks with your dog and inside the hotel is very dog friendly plus no charge.

  1. Trigony House Hotel Dumfries & Galloway.

Dogs welcomed throughout the hotel, welcome doggy box on arrival and great dog friendly walks.

  1. Bridge of Lochay Hotel Killin

  1. Tontine hotel Peebles

Dogs welcomed in bar, bistro and lounges so no need to hide them away.

  1. Blackaddie House Hotel Sanquhar

A hotel where dog owners are actively encouraged to bring their dogs with them.  Oh and a wee incentive for the owners probably some of the best cooking in Scotland!!
