Only 90 miles from Glasgow or 100 miles from Edinburgh. 50 miles from the English border. A truly dog friendly place to be.

We only have a couple of guests at a time. All pets are welcome. We ask that if your dog has any behavioural problems that you let us know in advance so that we may cater for them. For instance, giving them their space from other dogs.

Your dog is welcome to join you in the dining room and elsewhere in the property, the cinema, the table tennis room. We do ask that whilst in the castle that they have a lead on.

Outside of the castle, we have fenced areas at the back. A dog garden and larger paddock with pond that leads into the fields behind and down to the sea. Welleys can be handy in rainy seasons or we can lend you some!

Each dog will receive a welcome pack. We can also supply bedding and bowls.

Dog sitting can be arranged for a fee if you wish to go out without your furry friend.
