Your Dog's Stay

All our guestrooms are dog friendly. We can accommodate a maximum of two dogs per room; if you wish to bring more we recommend you call us in order to discuss further options.

In order to clean up the extra dog hairs left behind by your furry friend we charge an additional £20 per dog, per evening.

Guide and assistance dogs are welcome free of charge and can go anywhere they like - except the pool or hot tub! Tell us when you want to dine and we will make sure you get a table position that gives your guide or assistance dog space to lie down, plus a complimentary bowl of the finest Scottish water.
