For example, why not visit Glen Coe and take in the grandeur of its scenery, or cross over the bridge to Skye and discover the island’s castles, mountains and fairy pools? Scotland offers an amazingly warm welcome and you’ll be able to enjoy this famous hospitality when you stop to try some of the country’s famous seafood or haggis or when you sample its national drink (which is either whisky or Irn Bru depending on who you talk to).

Scotland is famous for its beautiful mountains and countryside, but its cities are very special too. Edinburgh is a great place to walk around with a dog – you can stroll through Princes Street Gardens in the shadow of the Castle, or explore hidden corners such as the pathway that follows the Water of Leith, the river that snakes through the city. Glasgow is another great city to take your pet walkies – head to the famous Botanic Gardens or just walk through the city centre, soaking up the city’s vibrant energy.
