Welcome to Dog Friendly Perthshire

Dog Friendly Perthshire is the dog owners guide to the numerous dog friendly places to eat, stay and things to do in Perth and the surrounding area of Perthshire.

Perthshire really is THE dog friendly capital of Scotland.

Perthshire, our beautiful part of Scotland, has long been famous for its breath-taking scenery. With acres of fantastic forests, gorgeous glens, magnificent mountains and rushing rivers it’s the perfect destination for you and your four-legged best friend to explore together.

Scotland is also known for its warm welcome, and on the following pages you’ll find a list of businesses who passionately believe that when you are ready for a bite to eat, a wander round the shops, or a place to rest your head at the end of your day – your dog shouldn’t be left out in the cold.

Once the ancient capital of Scotland, Perthshire is determined to reclaim its crown – as the Dog Friendly Capital of Scotland.

The Hideaway, Bamff Estate

The Hideaway is a hidden gem, located on the beautiful Bamff Estate in Perthshire, not far from Alyth.

Dogs Welcome…

I was quite surprised and saddened recently to be told after a Perthshire business announced they were going to do a trial run of allowing dogs on their premises they received quite a bit of negative feedback. Comments made were the dogs would be smelly, make a mess of the premises and just be a…

We missed Baxter lots during the 2 weeks we were away on honeymoon and I’m pretty sure (I hope haha!) he missed us along with his busy social life!

So next week Baxter will be packing his bags and will spending a couple of days at the wonderful Ecocamp Glenshee! We will be wrapping up cosy with the recent snowfall but it will be wonderful spending time in such a beautiful location in Highland Perthshire. Plus we have have heard loads from others how dog friendly Ecocamp is so we are really looking forward to our stay. Baxter and I will even be going llama trekking!!!

Keep an eye on the page next week where Baxter will be sharing all his adventures with doggies & their humans ❤️🐶🐾
