5 Dog Friendly Self Catering Staycations

Eagle Brae Dog Friendly Self Catering Scotland

After months spent at home, the idea of a holiday is filling us with joy.

Although we won’t be flying abroad this year, there are so many amazing places to visit on a Scottish staycation.

We can’t leave our furry best friends behind, so each of these self catering staycation accommodations are dog friendly too! Plus they are all located off the beaten track so there’s plenty of space for walking and a real escape from it all.

Get planning your next break with our top 5 dog friendly self catering staycations in Scotland!

Some hotels may be temporarily closed to due to Covid restrictions. Please contact them in advance and check the current guidelines before travelling.


Situated on the Woodlands Glencoe estate, RiverBeds are wee lodges, full of luxury! This riverside escape is located just 14 miles from Fort William so there’s lots to do in the area… if you feel like leaving your cabin that is!  Each lodge comes complete with veranda, coffee machine with Costa Coffee pods (very important to us coffee lovers!) plus you can have breakfast delivered to your door each morning. Some of the pods have their own private hot tub too.

They do advise that the cabins are on the cosy side, so multiple large dogs may not be too comfy!

From £375 per night.
