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.

Puppies & Prosecco

It’s been 3 weeks since the launch of our new website and our launch party Puppies & Prosecco and I still feel like I’m on a high from it all! I honestly never thought when I started the Facebook page that just a bit of fun would grow to have such a huge following and…

Saorsa Holiday Cottage and Kenmore

It’s been a week since our stay at Saorsa Holiday Cottage in Kenmore and I think it’s fair to say we are all missing it! Located a short walk from the banks of Loch Tay and Kenmore, it’s ideal for a dog friendly holiday. Surrounded by beautiful walks and not far from dog friendly restaurants, cafes…

Abernethy & Alibob’s

This afternoon we enjoyed the sunshine by taking a walk round Abernethy in Perthshire. We started off at the Tower which is one of only two remaining Irish Celtic style round towers left in Scotland. We then continued up Kirk Wynd which led onto Witches Road which we later learned, according to local legend is…

Birks of Aberfeldy

Another first for us with visiting the Birks of Aberfeldy! It’s a circular walk through Moness Glen with spectacular views down into the gorge of Moness Burn. There are waterfalls throughout the walk along a beautiful woodland trail. There are two ways to start the walk, in the town centre or there is Birks Car…

Ecocamp Glenshee

Someone yet again this week has dumped food waste next to Pitlochry Dam Visitor Centre! If eaten by a dog this could make them extremely poorly as old, rotten, mouldy food starts to produce toxins that can make you dog end up at the vet.
This waste is not coming from Pitlochry Dam Visitor Centre who yet again have kindly done their best to clean it all up.
It was suggested previously that the food waste was dumped by people traveling in a motor home but if you look at the amount of food waste there is and the contents, I believe it’s more poking like it’s come from a restaurant, takeaway or cafe.
It’s illegal to dump food waste and not to properly dispose of it. If you have any information who could be dumping it please report them to Environmental Health at Perth and Kinross council. If anymore waste appears please report to the council too so they can also keep track of all incidents.
Just please be careful with waking your dogs in the area as the last thing I would want is for them to eat something that would make them very ill due to someone being completely irresponsible and selfish 😞😡😡
