Dog walks in Glasgow


Dogs have been considered man’s best friend for decades. Always happy to see you, faithful and devoted to their owners; they can really bring a lot of joy into your life.

Taking them out on a day trip is a great way to reward them for the happiness they bring. If you’re lucky enough to live in Scotland, there are plenty of places you can take your faithful companion.

Here are our top dog-friendly Scottish destinations.

 1.  Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park

This is actually Scotland’s first National Park and it’s a fantastic place to take your dog. There’s plenty to do if you plan on staying there for the whole day. Land activities include walking, camping, cycling and wildlife watching. Each of these things can be done with your dog. There’s also a great selection of water activities available too. The only thing you need to remember is to keep them on under control.

2. Seton Sands beach

This is one of the best beaches in Scotland for dog owners. Featuring an exclusive dog exercise area, you don’t have to worry about which parts of the beach you can take your dog. Just 30 minutes from Edinburgh and with a campsite nearby, why not hire one of our Rockinvans and stay for the weekend?

3. Kelvingrove Park

Glasgow is one of Scotland’s best loved cities. Kelvingrove Park is the perfect place to head to with your dog and it’s situated along the River Kelvin. This beautiful Victorian Park leads all the way to Argyle Street where you can stop at the Pelican Café. It is dog friendly and what better way to end a walk than with a nice little refreshment for you and your dog?

4. The Castle & Gardens of Mey

Once home to the Queen Mother, The Castle & Gardens of Mey features a shaded park area for dogs. It’s a beautiful home and it has managed to gain a 5 star quality assurance rating every single year since 2007. This is a perfect Sunday afternoon activity that you and your dog will both enjoy.

5. Hermitage & Black Linn Falls

Situated in Dunkeld, this is one of the more beautiful walks on the list. You’ll get to witness leaping salmon and walk amongst the tallest Douglas Fir in the whole of Britain. You could easily spend a good few hours here.

These are five of the places considered to be the most beautiful for dog walkers. It’s advisable to check the dog policy of any place you are thinking of visiting – you may need to keep them on a lead for some parts of the walk.
