Dog Friendly

Here at West Coast Cottages we truly understand that your dog is part of your family and our pet friendly self-catering holiday cottages near Oban, Argyll are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty - ideal for exploring with your dog.

We are Dog lovers ourselves, and whilst all of our self-catering properties are either 4 or 5 Star Visit Scotland? Graded, we still allow well behaved pets in most cottages*,  all with beautiful walks direct from your door.

With an abundance of varied terrain, there is something to suit all; from the low level of the Crinan Canal, the beach at Ganavan Sands to the miles and miles of Forestry Commission marked walks, and of course for the seriously fit adventure dog, there are the Corbetts and Munros  

We always ask our clients to be respectful of our cottages and other guests when they bring their pets with them on holiday.

We don’t allow our own dogs on furniture and certainly not on beds and we ask that you don’t either please. We ask that you please bring your own pet bedding for them to lay on in the cottage. 

Dogs should never be left alone in the property or given access to the bedrooms and there must be no evidence your dog has been at the property when you depart.

Equally, we respect that not everyone has pets and don’t want to know a dog has stayed in the property before them; it is for this reason that we make a small additional charge per stay of £5 per night per pet to cover the additional costs of cleaning the property, returning it to our high standard.

We can provide details of a Personal Dog Sitting Service where your faithful friend can be looked after in the cottage or walked locally for those times you need to go to those places that sadly don’t permit animals.
