Pet-friendly holiday cottages and accommodation in the Scottish Borders
Often overlooked for more high-profile destinations such as Edinburgh, Loch Lomond and the Isle of Skye, the Scottish Borders is a great place to head to if you’re looking to explore somewhere different in Scotland.
At the heart of border wars between England and Scotland for centuries, the Scottish Borders are steeped with history, and there are some brilliant castles, abbeys and stately homes for you and your pooch to sniff out. Abbotsford House, Floors Castle and Hermitage Castle are just some of the historic attractions which welcome dogs. There are also several beautiful and scenic towns to visit in the Borders, including Kelso, Jedburgh, Peebles and Melrose, with its impressive 14th century abbey.
It’s also a great destination for lovers of the outdoors. To the west, you’ll find endless walkies over the rolling hills and moorland, while to the east is a gorgeous stretch of coastline, with dog-friendly beaches at Eyemouth, Coldingham Bay and St Abbs, pawfect for a game of fetch or a splash in the sea.
If you’re look to explore this diverse part of Scotland, whisk yourself and your furry friend away to one of our dog-friendly holiday cottages in the Scottish Borders above. Each has been paw-picked to guarantee a top dog holiday!
