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.

Faskally Wood, Pitlochry

Today me, Baxter and Laurie had a fantastic day enjoying the sunshine around Pitlochry! We had a lovely walk round by Faskally Woods which is just a few minutes drive out of Pitlochry. There are lots of different paths to take that which will you round Loch Dunmore or down to the banks of the…

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…

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…

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…

Dogs welcome in Perthshire

What I love about Perthshire being Dog Friendly is that there are so many fabulous independent local shops, restaurants, cafes and not forgetting  the various dog friendly accommodations that are leading the way and showing the benefits of welcoming dogs into their premises. From speaking to dog owners they are spending more time in town…

After a busy morning at Scone Palace with Craig Cantwell Photography and Baxter’s pal Tally, we then headed to Glencarse for a spot of lunch at The Chestnut Tree Coffee Shop. They serve a selection of sandwiches, paninis, soup and my favourite no surprises, delicious cake!
They have indoor seating which dogs are welcome along with outside seating on a lovely decking area. Since it was such a nice day we enjoyed sitting in the sunshine. Definitely recommend visiting and trying the BLT sandwich which was very yummy 😋❤️🐶🐾

This little sweetheart will be joining her new family soon and they are looking for some recommendations from our page members 😍

Can anyone recommend who they have found best for pet insurance?
Puppy socialisation classes?
Further training classes?

Also do you have any tips of helpful advice for welcoming a new puppy into the family? Was there anything in particular that helped your dog settle quicker when you first brought them home?

This should be a good post which many of us will find helpful 🐶❤️🐾
