Dog Friendly Holidays in Inverness

Let’s start with dog friendly hotels in Inverness!  Kingsmills Hotel and Spa is located in the heart of the city. This gorgeous luxury four star hotel has pet friendly rooms to make our animal companions enjoy their very own home from home. Get out and about and enjoy the fresh air – the hotel itself is surrounded by gorgeous scenery so make sure you take your pups on a nature trail or two!  Why not head along to Nairn beach and let the dogs have a run around the large sand dunes or even a swim in the sea. Nairn beach is also situated next to some fantastic cafes and restaurants, so take the opportunity to indulge in some seaside fish and chips!

On that same note, there are plenty of pubs and cafes in and around Inverness that are pet friendly. Basil Harbour Café is a firm favourite and you can check out what people have to say on their  Facebook.  Situated right on the harbour front both you and your dogs can enjoy the views.

Take in some Scottish history whilst you are in Inverness. Fort George was built after the defeat at Culloden of Bonnie Prince Charlie. George II created the fort as the in case there was another Jacobite attack. Open all year round, Fort George is a Scottish treasure being one of the monumental artillery forts in Britain, if not Europe. Our puppy pals get in for free however human prices start from £5.

Go dolphin spotting at Chanonry point – one of the best spots in the UK! The best time to catch a peek is usually on a rising tide. About 1 hour after the tide gets lower, the tide turns and that’s when the dolphins come out to feed. Chanonry point is a popular spot for watchers so you’re sure not to miss a thing.
