Pets are welcome in all our rooms
We welcome up to two well behaved and supervised dogs to share your stay with us. (for some dates a small extra charge of £10.00 per room applies). You will find both our front and rear gardens are fenced off and safe and there are many lovely dog walking routes available right on our doorstep.
Opposite Parkhead House are fantastic woodland walks. These pass through the woods by their own lake and our historic curling pond. There are many miles of walks but only 500m from the cottage you will find a large open field where you can watch your dog run freely around! (It is used in summer Saturdays for mini highland games so please be more careful then) but it is a great place for some ball chasing.
Our back garden gate leads you directly to over 150 acres of deer park and connection on the the John Muir Way long distance walking route, so if you fancy being out and off road all day it's right there. While in the deer park please keep your dog on a lead as we don't want any stress for the deer or sheep. There are also two water reservoirs near the cottage so just be careful if open water is an attraction!
"Not only the best B&B in the whole of Scotland, but James and Angela treat you like you are family, it's a home from home with lots of luxury included. Their kindness and warmth can never be forgotten. Lulu thought she'd arrived in doggie heaven - spoilt something rotten!!"
For our Outlander guests you will be pleased to know we have mapped out a walk through the deer park to "Lallybroch" which should last around an hour and is normally part of our Outlander walking tours each Sunday. You will pass the site of Jack Randell's grave, Red Jamie's cave, and the river where the red coats chased Fergus before he has his hand chopped off! And then you will reach "Lallybroch". If you are feeling really fit, you can walk the additional three miles along the coast to Blackness Castle. (Fort William) Both Midhope and Blackness castles are dog friendly.
We ask that dogs are not left in the cottage on their own. There are many dog friendly local pubs and resturants nearby and our local pub "The Fat Pheasant" which is a short walk from Parkhead House is great.
If you plan a day in some less dog friendly locations, (maybe a trip in to Edinburgh city) we can offer doggie day care with a couple of walks from our local dog walker included.
