Some people base their holidays around their dogs, so they set out with pet friendly holiday cottages in mind. ‘We’re visiting the island because we think Jake is going to like it’ was the start of a recent telephone conversation. It just took me a couple of minutes to figure out who Jake was. As it happens, we are on the dog’s side at Isle of Mull Cottages. We encourage owners to make their holiday cottages available to those bringing their pooches with them. After all, it’s fair to say that there might be a few visitors to this part of Scotland who are outdoor enthusiasts, in one form or another, and are therefore quite likely to have a dog they would like to bring with them.
So today we’re looking at our pet friendly holiday cottages to stay in from the canine perspective. Is there an enclosed garden? Are there walks from the doorstep? Can I get to a beach quite quickly? Here are our top three doggy destinations for pet friendly holiday cottages…
Yes, there is a lovely garden and yes, there is a fantastic beach within walking distance. Happy days.
Again, a great garden at this little cottage which stands proudly on the hillside above the river Aros, looking out over the Sound of Mull. There is a great little circular route around Aros castle that will delight your dog’s senses.
Craig Ben Cottage
Truly beautiful scenery, a freshwater loch on the doorstep (plenty of sticks too) and a beach just down the road, Craig Ben Cottage is a fabulous, dog friendly option.
To be honest, you can’t go too far wrong when choosing pet friendly holiday cottages from our host of dog friendly options. Your dog is likely to be quite pleased with your holiday choice. They will know they are going somewhere special as soon as they board the CalMac boat to get to Mull, and I’m afraid they are likely to be disappointed to leave too. You might just have to come again next year!
