Pets Information

We’re Dog Friendly…

Dogs just love the Isle of Cumbrae and walking with their responsible owners. The island is of course a paradise for dogs who have the freedom to go wherever their master decides.

There are some limitations of course and no one appreciates dog poo on the pavement or beaches so we would ask you to be a responsible owner and pick up and bin anything your dog leaves behind – there are plenty of bins around the island.

A number of accommodation and refreshment establishments here are dog friendly and for your convenience we have created a list below.

If you want to cycle, then why not take your dog along for the ride and hire a dog carrier to keep it safe.

Pet food and goodies can be found in several of the stores in the town.

Please remember:

• Not everyone likes dogs and some people can have a severe allergic reaction to dogs.

• Don’t let your dog run loose where there are sheep or other animals around.

• Keep Cumbrae clean by removing any dog poo.
