Dog Friendly in Stonehaven

Dog Friendly in Stonehaven

By Stunning Stonehaven on 29/08/2020

The thing we get asked the most is where can we go with our dog in Stonehaven – to eat, to stay?

One of the most popular things to do here is to walk whether that be along the beach, through Dunnottar Woods or along the coastal paths to either Skatie Shore or to the Monument and Dunnottar Castle (where dogs are allowed inside on a lead).

But where can you sit down and relax to have a well deserved cup of coffee or tea and a bite to eat? Here’s our recommendations:
