Dog Friendly Places To Visit

Make it a family adventure and explore the west coast of Scotland with your four-legged friend. We think all areas of Oban are ‘pawesome’ for exploring with your furry friend but we’ve listed our favourites below.

Couple Walking Dog Through Winter Woodland

Dunollie Woodland Trail

Located just behind our hotel, the Dunollie Woodland Trail will lead you into the Witches Wood. The deeper you adventure into the forest, the older it becomes. Over time the trees in the forest have become twisted and resemble witch-like shapes from the fierce and continuous coastal winds. The Witches Woods surround Dunollie Castle giving your furry friend plenty of space to run around and explore.

Guests at No. 26 By The Sea are able to access the Dunollie Woodland Trail directly from our Fernery Garden.

Some other popular dog-walks around Oban include the coastal paths down by Ganavan Sands and up to McCaig’s Tower.

Pulpit Hill and Gallanach

If you’d like to enjoy a day of exploring, we’d recommend hopping on the ferry to explore the surrounding islands of Mull, Kerrara and Ioana, or jumping in the car and heading north towards Loch Etive and Glencoe. With endless hills and lochside walks, the Highlands is one of the best places to explore with your dog.

Enjoy A Pint Together

The Lorne is a Scottish pub where you can choose from a fantastic selection of ales and lagers as well as whisky. But our favourite part is that all dogs are welcome and they even have a special menu for your pet. They want you both to have the Oban experience you deserve. To see their menus, visit their website.
