Scotland is known for its verdant lands and wild open spaces, making this country an ideal playground for pets and their owners. Even its urban areas welcome dogs — Edinburgh, its capital, is recognized as one of the most dog-friendly cities across the globe. Cairngorms National Park, Finnich Glen, and the Isle of Skye are some of the green spaces that you and your four-legged companion can explore. If you and your pet prefer to stay close to the water, Balnakeil, Saltcoats, and Sandwood Bay may be the best options for you. Of course, you shouldn’t miss out on seeing Scotland’s castles and ruins, and Culzean Castle & Country Park in South Ayrshire welcomes dogs. For accommodations, check out the best pet-friendly Airbnbs in Scotland, UK.
This unique accommodation for two provides you with awe-inspiring mountain, forest, and castle views. Adding to the romantic vibe is a wood-fired hot tub. There’s also a sauna and a fire pit on the premises that you can use. The property also has a garden where your pet can play around.
Do note that this rental is not recommended for those traveling with children or who have mobility issues.
