Pet Friendly Accommodation
Our pet-friendly lodges in Scotland
Pets and dog owners love our pet-friendly lodges in Scotland. Yes, owners can enjoy their holidays with their beloved dogs. And with half of our luxury self-catering accommodation welcoming pets, we are the perfect dog friendly holidays in Scotland! Plus we are set amongst 18 acres of private land, enjoying a foreshore on Loch Lomond and open parkland for playing. And here, dogs may run free off the lead. All we ask is that you keep them in your sights and under control.
As a dog friendly holiday resort, we happily allow dogs inside the living areas of our pet friendly lodges and chalets. But please keep them off the furnishings and refrain from having them in the bedrooms.

Local pet-friendly activities
Our dog-friendly lodges are surrounded by countryside, and there are a number of pet-friendly activities to enjoy in the local area. See our dog-friendly holidays guide for a handy list.
And now we have our very own dog-friendly restaurant on the banks of Loch Lomond. Here, we welcome you and your pets to dine in our restaurant/cafe, the Perch. And we even sell doggie ice cream to keep our four-legged guests well-fed. (Please note: The Perch is currently closed.)
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.Book Accommodation

40th celebration'My husband and I came here to celebrate my 40th birthday and we truly had a magnificent time. There was everything that you needed in your accommodation even washing liquid and conditioner for the washing machine. The hot tub and steam room were a real highlight as well as the living log fire.'
Such a beautiful setting'Myself and my partner recently stayed in Drummond Lodge (from 21-24 Feb) and we just wanted to say thank you so much for a lovely stay. We loved our lodge, it was like a home from home, and we really didn’t want to leave! It was spotlessly clean and in such a beautiful setting. All the staff we met were really friendly. We also loved Balmaha, what a wonderful village. So thank you very much! We are the couple that took Flynn for a walk and we took this photo of him... we thought you’d appreciate a copy. Thanks once again...
My stay will never be forgotten'Just wanted to say a very big thank you for my wonderful stay, I have no words to describe the incredible comfort I had at the Cawdor Diamond Lodge, I just checked out today this morning from lodge 5, I do not agree that your lodge is a five star if I could I would call it a 100 star lodge. From start to finish, my stay at the lodge will never be forgotten it's special and unique and an amazing experience'
Our own private beach'Just walking along the West Highland way path past some of the crowded beaches made us realise the value of having your own private waterfront onto the loch. I can still picture walking down to the lochside on our first evening and watching an osprey dive for a fish!'
Right up there with the best'We have travelled the world and stayed in all sorts of accommodation - Loch Lomond Waterfront is right up there with the best. The facilities, quality of fixtures and fittings and the setting all add up to a superb holiday experience and one that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. Outstanding!'
