Pet-friendly holidays in Castle Douglas
Put your best paw forward on a retreat to this delightful market town in Dumfries and Galloway in the south of beautiful Scotland. Roam the serene surroundings on long dog walks or enjoy days exploring the town; at the centre there’s a wealth of shops to pop by and dog-friendly places to grab a bite to eat as you wander. Just half a mile out of town you can discover the glistening waters of Carlingwark Loch which is encircled by a walking route, the perfect place for you and your canine companion to stretch your legs while looking out for local wildlife. For more outdoor adventure, the far-reaching landscape of Galloway Forest Park sits 15 miles away, a remarkable stretch of woodland that’s believed to be the largest forest in the UK and holds Dark Sky status so you could enjoy a spot of stargazing here too.
