All our cottages are dog friendly with private, enclosed gardens. There are several beautiful walks through the grounds and local area, which you can explore with your dog. After a big day out, come back to your lodge, dry those paws and curl up by the fire. It’s a dog’s dream!
Abbotsway Court has a fully enclosed courtyard, complete with a dog kennel outside. It’s secured by a five-bar stock gate, so you can rest assured your dog is safe on our grounds. There’s also a utility room and outside tap for easy access to water for your dog.
Cutlar’s Cottage is surrounded by a fully enclosed, private garden. This gives your dog plenty of space to roam and sniff outside and you can even set up the games room as your dog’s own bedroom.
At Orroland Lodge, your dogs will love curling up next to the Aga! Outside, there are extensive private grounds with around 1⁄4 of a mile down its drive. There is no traffic here other than your own, and the lodge is approximately 1 mile from the public road. There is a boot room ideal for dogs to sleep in over night and a large kennel and run with a 6ft high fence. The garden is not fully enclosed.
Landscaped gardens, wildflower meadow, lochside walks and seaside adventures. Whatever type of walk your dog loves most, we have it all.
If you have an energetic dog, you can get off the beaten track and head to the shore along woodland tracks. Let your dog run through the trees, paddle in the streams, sniff through the fern banks, and investigate the rock pools.
Meanwhile, you can take in the vast sea views and enjoy uninterrupted sounds of the waves and birds, feeling in touch with nature and relaxed, away from it all. You can spend as long as you like exploring the shore, sitting and watching the waves while your dog potters about; it is a great way to unwind.
Dogs are £25 each and we ask that you bring no more than 3 dogs per property. We also ask that you bring bedding, bowls and towels for your dogs.
Dogs should not be left unattended in the property. We provide dog kennels at Abbotsway Cottage and Orroland Lodge for this purpose.
We can also provide dog safety gates for interior doorways. This way, you can keep your dogs where you want without shutting the door on them. These can be borrowed free of charge, subject to availability. Unfortunately, these aren’t available for Orroland Lodge because the doorways are extra wide.
Also, just to note, there is a small pheasant shoot at Orroland, so between September to January, there will be quite a lot of pheasants around the grounds and dogs will need to be on leads.
