Pet-friendly cottages & accommodation in the Isle of Arran, Scotland
The Isle of Arran is often described as ‘Scotland in Miniature’, so is the perfect introduction to this beautiful part of the UK for both you and your pet! There’s epic scenery, mouth-watering local food, fascinating heritage and a plethora of dog-friendly days out, attractions and eateries to fill your holiday itinerary.
Arran is an island which is used to catering for pets, with many of the cafes and restaurants welcoming dogs with open arms. But before you head out to eat your fill, you’ll need to work up an appetite, and there is no end of walking routes on Arran to satisfy you and your pet. The challenging Goat Fell walk will keep active dogs and their owners on their toes with steep mountain terrain, while interesting sites such as the Machrie Moor Stone Circles require much less effort with a scenic reward. Other trails range from leafy forest walks to breathtaking coastal rambles, all of which will impress with their stunning scenery and feeling for freedom.
Arran is blessed with an array of beautiful dog-friendly beaches, where you can revel in the scenery while your pet enjoys exploring. When you’re not enjoying the natural landscapes, there are lots of dog-friendly attractions to enjoy, including the grounds and country park at Brodick Castle. Your four-legged friend is also sure to relish accompanying you on adventures to see the island’s wildlife, including seals, Golden Eagles, sea otters and herons, although convincing them they’re not new playmates may be a challenge for some!
