There’s no need to sort out kennels or a dog sitter if you book one of these establishments for your next Scottish holiday.
With around one-in-three Scottish households now thought to have a dog, many businesses are coming around to the idea that furry family members need to be catered for.
It used to be relatively unusual for hotels to allow pups, but now an increasing number are emphasising their dog-friendly status.
Some might even provide doggy bowls, towels and other services for four-legged guests.
