Dog-friendly accommodation in the Isle of Harris

Attention, all my fellow canines! I have some exciting news to share with you! Laxdale Cottage has always been a welcoming place for us furry friends, but guess what? Our humans have finally listened to our barks and opened up Tarasaigh House and Claddach House for us as well! Isn’t that pawsome? They’re giving it a trial run for now, but if it goes well, we might be able to enjoy dog-friendly accommodation in the Isle of Harris more often.

Sandy Paws and Wagging Tails

When we stay at Claddach or Tarasaigh House, there are many fantastic spots for us to explore with our humans. The beaches are absolutely amazing! My personal favourite is Luskentyre Beach, where we can sink our paws into miles of soft, white sand. The sea might be a little cooler than the Caribbean, but a quick shake right next to our humans always gets the best reaction! Plus, running around on the beach will warm us up in no time.

Dog-friendly accommodation in the Isle of Harris
Tarasaigh House boasts a commanding position in Seilebost overlooking its island namesake. With enviable views of the golden sands of Seilebost Beach towards Luskentyre, this well-appointed house sleeps up to 8 guests in 4 bedrooms.


Dog-Friendly Adventures Await in the Hebrides

The best part is that there are plenty of dog-friendly places where both us and our humans can hang out indoors, so we don’t have to wait outside in the wind and rain (and let’s face it, Harris can get quite windy). If you’re up for a longer day out, I recommend heading to ‘The Wobbly Dog’ cafe at Ness on Lewis. There are also great beaches on Lewis, like Garry Beach and Dalmore. Oh, and we can even take a stroll on the Bridge to Nowhere! How adventurous does that sound?

Plan Your Pawsome Stay

Now, there is a small charge for us to stay at these properties (but hey, it’s worth it!). For now, pets staying at Laxdale Cottage can still enjoy their stay for free. The charge will be added to our humans’ booking, so make sure they remember to tick the ‘doggy on board’ box when they make the reservation.

Guidelines for Doggy Etiquette in the Hebrides

Of course, there are a few rules that we need to follow during our stay. They’re important not just for our comfort but also for the comfort of other guests who come after us. Here they are:
First, our flea and worming treatments must be up to date. It’s for our own good, you know!
Second, our humans shouldn’t leave us alone in the cottage. We’re adorable, but we should resist the temptation to jump on the beds or furniture. It’s their job to remind us about that.
Third, when nature calls, our humans need to be responsible for picking up our waste around the property. Let’s keep it clean for everyone.
Lastly, we must wear our leads whenever livestock is around, especially during lambing season. Our humans should also pay attention to any signs about dogs on crofts (that’s what they call farms there).

Convincing Your Family for a Memorable Hebridean Holiday

So, my fellow dogs, whether you’re Patch, Pongo, Perdita, or any other name, it’s time to have a chat with your family. Convince them to make a booking so we can all enjoy a wonderful Hebridean holiday together.

Woof woof!
