Our pet-friendly lodges in Scotland

We have five dedicated self-catering lodges and chalets available for pet-friendly holidays, plus two shepherd’s huts. So owners can enjoy their holidays with their beloved dogs. And with half of our luxury self-catering accommodation welcoming pets, we offer the perfect dog-friendly holidays in Scotland! What’s more, 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 accommodations, but please keep them off the furnishings and refrain from having them in the bedrooms.

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.

Dog-friendly restaurants

And now you can enjoy dog-friendly dining areas on the banks of Loch Lomond. Just next door, The Oak Tree Inn welcomes you and your dogs to dine in their dog-friendly restaurant/cafe.

Owner responsibility

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.

  • Couldn't ask for a better day

    'We wanted to thank you so very much for all the hard work which went on behind the scenes both in the lead up to, and on the day of, our wedding.  We could not have asked for a better day.  Everything was exactly how we wanted it to be and a lot of that is down to all the hard work of Sheena and your staff.  We have had so many compliments about how much everyone enjoyed our wedding.'
  • The Lodges are amazing

    'I would like to say that we all had an amazing time staying your lodges at the weekend.  The Lodges are amazing.  Beautifully presented and everything you need within.  Stunning location.  Muy birthday/retirement celebrations were made all the more special at this wonderful location with my friends around me.'
  • Site exclusivity was amazing

    "What made it for us was the site exclusivity. We had all our friends and family in one place for the whole weekend. Everyone keeps telling us it was the best wedding they have been to!”
  • The staff go above and beyond

    'The staff were fantastic and massive thank you to Rafal who was great checking everyone in on Friday and who also went above and beyond and took my grandparents back to their holiday cottage in Milton of Buchanan after the wedding!'
  • 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...
