Explore Edinburgh with your dog from our dog-friendly accommodation
Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh not only offers an abundance of history, attractions and retail therapy for humans, but it is also one of the UK’s most dog-friendly cities, with plenty of fantastic pet-friendly accommodation in Edinburgh to stay in.

Treat your dog (or ‘dug’ as the Scottish say) to an unforgettable hike to the top of Arthur’s Seat, a dormant volcano on the edge of Edinburgh’s city centre, and admire the panoramic views together. On the way back down, look out for ‘Dugs Welcome’ stickers which can be seen on many of the pubs, restaurants and cafes around the city, and stop for a well-earned bite to eat while your happy hound enjoys a refreshing bowl of water.
