Plan your
Pawlidays

27th October 2022

At Highland Holidays all our accommodation is dog-friendly so you can bring your four-legged friend with you on your Scottish Highland adventure. No paying for kennels – or being sad to leave them behind! We’re surrounded by amazing walks in this part of the world, which everyone is sure to love whether they have two legs or four!

Treks & Trails

Right next to Ben Nevis Holiday park is a short relaxing stroll along the banks of the River Lochy – an easy and accessible route for all the family. Guests and their four legged friends can enjoy a paddle in the warm Summer months, or simply take in the stunning scenery along the trail. 

Looking for more of a challenging trek? Nestled under the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain – our Ben Nevis Holiday park makes for the perfect base camp to tackle the 1,345m tall munro! It is safe to take your pooch along for the hike, but preferably on a lead so as not to impede other walkers. Guests should note that sheep graze up to 700 meters – so be sure to keep an eye on your furry companion on the way up! The view from the top of Ben Nevis is well worth the climb. Once at the summit you’ll have the whole of Scotland and beyond to look out on to.

There are plenty of health benefits to getting outdoors and reconnecting with nature – so what better way to do so than with your loyal companion by your side? 

Dog Friendly Activities 

We have highlighted some of our favorite pet friendly activities to tick off on your next visit to the Scottish Highlands. Explore the local area together, and at a discount with our Explorer Rewards;
