Dog friendly holidays in Scotland for Walkers

Hillwalks

The essence of all Dog friendly Breaks in Scotland is  the quality of the local walks and how they may be enjoyed by both dogs and owners. Not all walks are convenient for dog owners. Some kinds of terrain may not be suitable for aging dogs and not all routes are safe to let dogs off-lead. However, with pentiful choice, the Perthshire area has something to offer everyone when it comes to a huge variety of walks.

Perthshire’s majestic glens are the stuff of legend – and that is fact. The area offers rich choice of Hill and Glen – each providing a beautiful visiting prospect during your Dog friendly stay in Pitlochry, Scotland.

Ben Vrackie

Starting at Pitlochry, itself, we have the magnificent Ben Vrackie.

Ben Vrackie is a well known and much loved hill which forms a scenic backdrop to the bustling resort town of Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire.

Ben Vrackie translates as `speckled mountain` and comes from a time when white quartz rocks were scattered across its slopes. On a good clear day the view from the summit of 2,757 ft (841 m) is tremendous with the Beinn a Ghlo range to the north and the sweep of Strathtay and Strathtummel to the west. In exceptional conditions it is even possible to see Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh.

The walk to the summit of this imposing backdrop to Pitlochry town (sometimes known as Ben y Vrackie)  is approximately 3 hours  there and back from Rosemount Hotel. The path is well-constructed for most of the route, passing beside Moulin Burn and then across heather moorland. Red grouse and red deer live on the hillside and sometimes a flash of white can indicate the presence of the shy mountain hare.

 

This fabulous trail is also featured in the video, below:-

Here's a link to a YouTube Video from SEESCOTLAND: Ben Vrackie offers a moderate hike, taking around 3-4 hours from our door. The initial climb, to a small Lochan 2/3 of the way up, is steady and fine for dogs (and humans!) that are moderatelty fit. Thereafter, the incline steepens, but the views are worth the effort. On a clear day, you can see the summit of Ben Nevis

A perfect riverside walk through mature forest and leading to a stunning waterfall. Salmon may be seen jumping the falls late October onwards. Paths are well formed and the forestry boasts some of Scotland's tallest trees. Plenty of interest for people and pooches, alike.

Back to a warm, cosy, friendly Base

Return to Rosemount Hotel invigorated, happy and hungry. Time for a wee relaxing aperitif and a delicious meal with a happy dog at your feet. It’s a great sight to see several dog owners enjoying a few companionable hours chatting of an evening, with several dogs strewn across rugs, content. It feels SO right!

The Braes of Killiecrankie Walks

For those preferring a longer walk, the well waymarked Bealach route follows a high moorland path of 10 miles, traversing the lower slopes of Ben Vrackie, onwards to Killiecrankie before returning to Pitlochry alongside a sheltered path by the River Garry. This may be dissected into 4 or 5 shorter walks or variations on the basic circuit walk.

Dog Friendly Car Tours with Walks

A highly popular car tour amongst visitors to Rosemount Hotel, takes in the House of Bruar – a fabulous Visitor Centre with great shopping and eating facilities. They are wonderfully canine-conscious, have a covered parking area for dog owners and a tap for water.

From the house of Bruar, you might take the road that runs paralell to the A9 for Calvine then onwards towards Loch Tay and Glen Lyon – Perthshire’s longest, loveliest glen, where the road meanders alongside the river Lyon which tumbles through corries, gorges and meadows. The pools near Bridge of Balgie are accessible, with the added benefit of parking and a little tearoom nearby.

From Glen Lyon, Loch Tay can be reached via a road passing around Ben Lawers Britain’s 10th highest mountain. It is well-known for its unique range of sub-arctic plants and wildlife, including rare alpine plants of striking colour and the Ptarmigan.
