WoofHostelling 19 - What a year!

2019 was quite the year for #WoofHostelling as we introduced Oban, Crianlarich and Pitlochry to our network of dog-friendly hostels bringing the total of dog-friendly hostels to an astounding 11 hostels. No one likes to leave their best friend behind and we hope you can have a great trip with us, alongside your little or large sidekick.

We also introduced our special dog water stations to Oban, Torridon and Lochranza making your four-legged friend’s trip extra special – also great for your dog’s Instagram!

Keen Munrobagger Ross Cunningham loves to go hostelling with his dog Dex. In 2019, they both visited Cairngorm Lodge and Oban Youth Hostels, you can watch what they got up to below


We also had the VisitScotland ambassador Scotland with the Wee White Dug stay at three of our hostels – Lochranza, Glencoe and Oban!  

“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our recent Woof Hostelling adventures. Hostelling Scotland has eleven dog-friendly hostels and we’ve stayed at (and loved) four of them. And while they’ve each been very different hostels, they’ve all had one thing in common – high standards.”
