Pet-friendly accommodation in Dunkeld
Dog-friendly cottages in Dunkeld offer guests and their four-legged friends the ideal location from which to explore the stunning Perthshire countryside. Dog-friendly Dunkeld is a beautiful village on the banks of the River Tay where you and your canine companions can wander the historic streets, take a stroll along the river or peruse the specialist shops. Located within the Highlands of Scotland, the area is surrounded by breathtaking scenery. With walks to suit all abilities on your doorstep, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to stretching your legs and fetching sticks. Venturing over the attractive seven-arch bridge, you’ll find the equally attractive village of Birnam, famous for its links with Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
With so much natural beauty, Dunkeld is ideal for keen walkers, so it’s no wonder there is so much dog-friendly accommodation on offer. There are other outdoor activities available too, such as cycling, climbing, canoeing and fishing, but you’re pawed pals might not be so keen on those. The area also has lots of lovely towns and villages to visit, all of which are steeped in history and have a wealth of independent shops and eateries to choose from. There’s Killiecrankie to the north, Blairgowrie to the east, Perth to the south and Aberfeldy to the west. If you want to experience the ultimate Scottish break, head further afield to Loch Tay, Perthshire’s largest lake, or Ben Lawers, Perthshire’s highest peak. At the end of a tiring day, head home to snuggle up on the sofa with some treats.
