The Isle of Islay is very dog-friendly and has plenty for you and your furry friend to enjoy. The island has spectacular beaches to enjoy long walks with your dog. Kilnaughton Bay and Sanaignmore Bay are just two of the stunning beaches with clear waters, white sands and plenty of fun to be had. Journey inland and walk through some of the trails and hills offering a chance to explore the great outdoors. The Isle of Islay is well-known for its whiskey with a number of distilleries on the island. Bowmore Distillery is a particular favourite and is the oldest on the island. Located in a beautiful setting, those who aren’t interested in the whiskey can walk the dog and take in the beautiful sights.

A pet-friendly cottage is a perfect base for exploring the Isle of Islay. Staying in a cottage provides guests with everything they need for a relaxing holiday in a home away from home. Rather than a hotel, guests can enjoy home comforts and also bring their four-legged friend along for the holiday. Enjoy your morning coffee with spectacular views and spend your evenings cooking with your family (you just need to provide the food). Whether you’re planning a holiday with your large extended family, just your partner and children, a group of friends or just your other half, there are plenty of cottages to suit everyone.

Ian’s House is a perfect example of one of the dog-friendly cottages available to guests on the Isle of Islay. The cottage sleeps 5 people and allows 1 dog, perfect for a family or group of friends who want to bring their dog on holiday with them. With a coastal location, the cottage provides beautiful views of the sea and just a short walk from the beach, perfect for morning dog walks. With everything guests need to enjoy a relaxing break in Scotland, choosing a pet-friendly cottage holiday in the Isle of Islay is definitely worth it.
