Pet Friendy Stays
In The Scottish Highlands

Pets are part of the family, and the thought of leaving them behind when you set off on your holiday adventures can often make the start of your travels a bit of an anti-climax. Which is why here at Natural Retreats, we've put many pet-friendly steps in place to encourage our guests to bring their four-legged friends along when exploring new corners of the country.

We provide the little touches that make your pet's stay as comfortable and stress-free as possible, from bespoke doggy hampers to recommending the best pet-friendly beaches and pubs in the local area to explore. Imagine crisp Spring walk(ie)s, snuggling up with your furry friend in front of our log fires and jumping into new adventures with man's best friend.

We spoke with Karen and her furry friend Sabine, on their recent visit to John O'Groats to get the lowdown on our Highland hideaways...

"We visited many beach coves near to John O'Groats (Sabine loves beaches and water!). With that in mind, the walk-in utility area in the lodge was great for towelling down and sandy boots. A sea view was essential for Sabine - hence we opted for a Sea View Lodge so she had great views out while we rested. We took night time dog walks to the tiny harbour at John O'Groats, which was only a couple of minutes away, prior to bed time. We often saw a small fishing boat heading out to work - then saw them return on our early morning walk."
