Our own collie pups at the Highland Bothies

Dog Friendly – Four-legged friends welcome

As we are a working croft dogs have always been part of our family. Ruth’s parents have Rocky the working Collie and Glenn the Labrador and we have Bonnie the Collie.

We are happy to welcome well behaved dogs in our Beinn Ghobhlach bothy, but as a working croft with sheep we do require that dogs are kept on leads at all times. There are tether hooks provided. Our bothies are luxury glamping accommodation so we have rules for the four-legged guests. These are to ensure that our bothies stay luxury.

As space in the Bothy is compact, we would advise that it is not suitable for large dogs. We would however accept 2 small dogs. Certain breeds of dogs we just cannot accept in accordance with the Dangerous Dog act 1991.

  • There is a charge of £5 per night per dog.
  • We are happy to provide dog bowls if required.

Doggie Dos and Don’ts.

  • Please ensure that flea treatment is up to date before arrival.
  • Dogs are not allowed on any of the furniture, even with a blanket.
  • Owners should bring their own dog bed and towels.
  • Please ensure that your dog is clean before entering the Bothy (an outside tap is provided.)
  • The dog(s) must not be left unattended in the Bothy at any time.
  • It’s the owner’s responsibility to clean up after your dog inside and outside the Bothy.
  • Dogs must be kept on leads at all times while on and around the site, and kept under control by a responsible adult.
  • Your pet must not be permitted to cause any kind of nuisance to the neighbouring properties.
  • The interior and grounds must be left in a clean, undamaged condition.
  • Any damage or stains must be paid for in full.

We cannot stress enough that this is a working croft and there will be sheep, lambs and deer around the site, which must not be stressed by dogs off the lead.
