Angie Munro is rarely seen without her furry friends Chester and new addition Olive.
Her two dachshunds mean she is the perfect person to share the best dog friendly places to visit, stay and eat across Scotland.
We asked Angie for the three places that got Chester and Olive’s tails wagging the most so far.
This small section on the North Coast 500 has everything. Breathtaking landscapes, dramatic scenery, waterfalls, a castle, a lighthouse and some of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland. Topped off with local independent small businesses and dog friendly restaurants, this is the perfect area to visit with your four legged friends.
We loved canoeing out on Loch Lurgainn on an incredible trip with Kayak Summer isles which included a hot chocolate and slice of cake on a secluded beach with stunning views of Stac Pollaidh.
Our personal favourite dog friendly accommodations in the area are The NC500 pods, Achmelvich or The Little Abodes, Clachtoll. Both are beside those beautiful white beaches with turquoise blue waters that we all know and love! Who needs the Bahamas?
Scotland’s most dog friendly city most definitely has to be Edinburgh. With an abundance of walks, parks and green spaces, it’s always on our list for a weekend city break.
St James Quarter, Locked In Escape Rooms, The Camera Obscura and Bright Bus Tours are all dog friendly and such a fun day out for all.
Calton Hill or Portobello beach are great to let the dogs burn off some energy and tire them out before hitting a trendy dog friendly bar or restaurant in the city centre.
Not far away is the quieter South Queensferry too where you can jump on a dog friendly boat trip like Maid of the Forth and explore Incholm Island and Abbey before grabbing an ice cream and heading back to the city.
The Atholl Arms in Dunkeld is a dog owner’s dream. Delicious food, dog friendly dining and rooms, a dog menu and they even have a dog friendly junior suite! This is a place we visit again and again. Right in the centre of Dunkeld with views of the Tay, this is probably our favourite dog friendly hotel in the whole of Scotland.
There are an abundance of walks nearby to enjoy including The Birnam Oak, Pinecone Point, The Corbenic Poetry Path and The National Trust’s iconic Hermitage – especially in autumn.
After a day exploring the stunning views of rural Perthshire you can’t beat heading back for their famous Sunday roast and a wee drink by the fire. The perfect relaxing break with your pooch.
