Pets and dog owners love our pet-friendly self-catering accommodation. Owners can relax in the best self-catering accommodation in Scotland to welcome pets. Set amongst 18 acres of foreshore and open fields dogs are welcome to run free off the lead in large parts of our secure site.
Pets are allowed inside the living areas of lodges and chalets but we ask you to refrain from having them in the bedrooms.

Whilst in the direct vicinity of the lodges we ask that dogs are on a lead and mess should be bagged and disposed of responsibly. Owners are asked never to leave pets unattended in a lodge and to prevent them from excessive barking or whining to respect other guests.
