Indeed our establishment has been described as a dogs paradise by more than one of our customers
The Lodge, the two log cabins and the cottage are set in just over 12 acres of grounds. Whilst there are areas of mowed grass and a formal walled garden there are acres of rough grass and wild growth for the dogs to roam in. There are walks within the grounds, along the river bank and through the woods in between. For the larger dog and fitter owner there is abundant walking in the immediate vicinity mainly through Forestry Commission woodlands onto the hills or along the loch sides. We are well away from the main road, access to the property is via a minor road (single track with passing places) so there is little traffic to worry about.
We do ask that you supply your pets own bedding and not allow them on the beds or furniture, to clean up after your dogs (shovels provided) in the mowed areas and not to let them roam the grounds unattended.
Please do not leave your dogs for long periods in your accommodation unless you are confident they will be quite content, dogs, we have discovered, can become agitated at being left behind in unfamiliar holiday accommodation with strangers and other dogs around.
With our dogs we know only too well how difficult it can be to find a warm welcome for both us and our companions.
We do assure you that you and your dogs will receive a warm welcome at Ardoch Lodge.
There is an upper limit of 2 dogs per cabin and the cottage.
