    Finding Hotels in Scotland that truly welcome dogs  РA Common Issue!

    We know that, for many pet owners, a holiday is simply not a holiday when their dog is not able to come along too. Accordingly, it might be worth noting that our dog friendly policy states that pets are positively encouraged to come and stay, rather than being merely tolerated. This is simply a statement of our natural culture, and not a marketing ploy.

    Rosemount Hotel Pet Policy

    A holiday is incomplete without the dog in tow: Here are a few polite requests to help us ensure that our policy of welcoming dogs is a total success

    • Non-aggressive dogs only
    • We may ask for proof of up-to-date vaccinations
    • All canine guests must have been recently treated for worms and fleas
    • Dogs must be clean before entering the building. A hose and towels are provided near our entrance. Just ask a staff memebr to set the hose up.
    • Dogs (and their owners:-) must be well-behaved
    • Dogs must be toilet trained and not use our grounds for toilet purposes. There is a park directly across the road.
    • We ask that¬†you do not leave your dog¬†unattended on the premises unless for brief periods¬†in their cage. If this is the case, we would like to have a contact mobile number . We will happily check in on them from time to time to make sure they are not stressed.

    Check us out on tripadvisor for a full insight into our dog owning guests’ experiences. Together with this, however, we are not afraid to ask one or two polite courtesies from our dog families in order to make our dog inclusive policy a positive for all of our guests. The fact is that the majority of our dog-owning guests applaud this and tell us they would practise our few small requests, anyway.

    Some Ideas for Fun with the Dog in Pitlochry


    There is no better place to take a dog on holiday than where there is mile upon mile of stunning walking country. We recommend:-

    Pitlochry Walks

    Black Spout Wood Walk 

    A saunter through light, dappled woodland to a delightful waterfall. For a longer stretch, press on to Edradour Distillery and enjoy the gorgeous downhill amble back into town. The views are breathtaking. Refreshment at the Moulin Inn or Pitlochry Golf Club enroute. This walk leads from the door of Rosemount Hotel Pitlochry. It can be modified to circuits of varying length which take from around 40 minutes to several hours to enjoy. The great things about this area is that it is away from roads and, until you get towards Edradour, away from sheep. Consequently dogs can be let off-lead. There is also a small pitch and putt area whose periphery can be used to settle the dog with a ball, if necessary.

     Black Spout Wood Pitlochry

    Ben Vrackie, Beallach-na-Searmoin, Ben y Ghlo and Craigower Hill.

    (Fabulous scenic hillwalks with a range of degrees of challenge)

    Ben Vrackie is a well known and much-admired hill which forms¬†the ever-changing and¬†scenic¬†northerly landscape to¬†the bustling resort town of Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire.¬†Because¬†“the Ben”¬†sits to the north of the town,¬†the sun lights its rugged southerly aspect, emphasising the contrast between greens, purples¬†and greys in an ever-moving and dramatic way. All this against an equally¬†dynamic and stunningly contrasting sky.



    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 Pitlochry. The path is well-constructed for most of the route, passing beside Moulin Burn and then across heather moorland.  A Lochan situated two thirds of the way up provides good safe swimming for dogs Рan ideal cooler on a hot day. The final section is more demanding, but worth a little effort in return for the rewarding views. Red grouse and red deer live on the hillside and sometimes a flash of white can indicate the presence of the shy mountain hare.

    Loch Dunmore 

    An instantly-loveable, small Loch, just outside Pitlochry, surrounded by mixed woodland and teeming with wildlife, such as Red Squirrel, Kingfishers, Woodpeckers, Owls and some beautiful water birds. A wee holiday treat!


    Killiecrankie, Queen’s View, Blair Atholl and Bruar

    Killiecrankie and Blair Atholl

    The Pass of Killiecrankie

    An impressive , tree-lined gorge which is simply breathtaking in Autumn, but beautiful all year around. Lots of shelter for the dog, but part of the circuit walk is along a highly scenic road, where, unfortnately , one or two cars may travel too fast. Here a leash is recommended.

    Queens View.

    A must-visit place during holidays in the Pitlochry area. The panoramic view has been described as “spine-tingling”.

    Allean Forest Walk.

    Near to Queen’s View. A steady uphill walk, passing an abandoned crofting farmstead enroute. One of the buildings has been re-constituted to give a fascinating insight into the realities of living in this area in days gone by. Wonderful views over Loch Tummel towards Schiehallion on the horizon.

    Blair Atholl, with Blair Castle,

    Visitor centre and country life museum, working watermill and Glen Tilt walks. Blair Castle offers many hours of historical education and interest. Pony trekking and wildlife safaris are bookable within its splendid grounds. Additionally, walkers and cyclists may find a whole network of trails leading from the castle gates. Cycle hire is available just opposite. There is plenty enough to spend a whole day exploring in this delightful hamlet. Just a few miles from Pitlochry.

    House of Bruar and the Falls of Bruar.

    A pleasing combination of top-end visitor facility with a delightful walk passing two waterfalls.

    Glen Lyon

    This powerfully beautiful area is often described as the most beautiful Glen in Scotland. Please take a trip along this beautiful landscape during you Pitlochry holiday. You can drive onwards to Loch Tay and Kenmore, then on to Aberfeldy, the Spirit of Wood, Dewars Distillery and the Highland Chocolatier. A fabulous day out.

    B&B Accommodation Pitlochry and Glen Lyon tour

    Kenmore and Loch Tay

    Enjoy Kenmore Marina, Mains of Taymouth Visitor Centre and Restaurant and Crannog Centre

    Loch Tay


    Aberfeldy and Strathtay

    A quaint Highland town with independent shops, arty cafes and an art-house style¬†cinema. Although the town is only 20 minutes direct drive away, there are several¬†beautiful, scenic routes that we recommend our guests to take with many points of interest, eateries and viewpoints¬†enroute.¬†All in all –¬†a full day of feasting the eyes, the soul and the belly!

    The Highland Chocolatier

    Exquisite chocolate made in situ. Pop over the road to see the rapids

    Dunkeld and the Hermitage Forest walk

    The romance of a semi-ruined Cathedral right on the banks of the Tay and a picture-perfect wee Highland town. Great walks around and about
