Baddog finished off a bit of ice cream she found in the freezer at the weekend, and has been obsessed with the bin this week.  :D

Bella is 15 months old  We've just moved from Devon to Norfolk, and were so proud when her new vet said "She's perfect! And so beautiful! Bella's going to be spayed on Tuesday (she has a little hernia) and we're concerned about the collar she'll have to wear. We've bought a comfy collar, but

Dog friendly Argyll
« on: May 08, 2018, 03:31:05 PM »
Hi all,

I will be heading to Argyll in June for 2 weeks with Alf. We are staying near Inveraray on Loch Fyne for the first week and then near Tarbert on the Kintyre peninsula for the second week. It's not an area I know very well (usually we go further north) so I'm looking for any recommendations of dog friendly things to do, eateries, and especially walks. My only plans so far are a day trip to Arran for a walk on Goat Fell, and a visit to Inveraray Jail (which a friend told me is dog friendly, if Alf doesn't behave I might leave him there  :023). Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

Kate

Hi Kate,

Sounds lovely, I donít know the area but Iíve found this website useful in the past.

 http://www.doggiepubs.org.uk/

Something else we have noticed when we have been away is that a lot of places donít actually show as been told friendly but are.  So now if we want to go in anywhere we just ask & loads of places have said itís ok even though there was no sign saying they are.
Fiona, Hollie & Kensi!

I shall ask my kennel partner Donald at Lochgilphead for suggestions - he knows the area well.

Cheers,

We are in Kintyre - not far from Campbeltown, and can recommend the Argyll Arms at Bellochantuy as a totally dog friendly hotel, restaurant and pub.  It's our "local" at only four miles away!  Nick and Ian are great hosts and dogs are always welcome.  It is also right on a lovely beach, so you can walk/run before having a beer. It's all good. :023

I thought Iíd give an update on the dog friendly places I found in Argyll. Alf had a lovely holiday with lots of long walks and the weather was very kind to us!

Pubs/restaurants:
Brambles and The George Hotel in Inveraray
Starfish in Tarbert
The Stagecoach Inn at Strachur
Glen Barr stores cafe in Glen Barr
The Douglas Hotel, Arran (we sat outside as it was a nice day, not sure if dogs are allowed inside)

Walks:
Pucks Glen near Dunoon
Inveraray castle grounds (not gardens)
Dun Skeig near Clachan
Goat Fell on Arran
The Cowal way
The Kintyre way

We had a lovely time and Iíd recommend the area to anyone looking for a holiday destination!
