"... a dog is not just for Christmas"
We now only have one dog at Greshornish, a chocolate labrador bitch called Soay. For her this is a doggy paradise with chickens in the garden, rabbits in the rhododendrons, endless muddy walks and a sea shore to explore. Since the loss of our older dog, Staffa, Soay has settled into a more sedate routine but she may greet you on arrival with enthusiasm - she does enjoy the company!
If you would like to bring your dog on holiday with you, then we do ask that you consider the following:
Please tell us at the time of booking, even if you plan to leave your dog in the car. We do have three rooms that will accept dogs but it is not always possible to move you if you arrive with your pet unexpectedly. In these rooms dogs can be in the room with you, but please, not on the bed or other furniture. Please bring familiar bedding, basket or kennel-cage and doggie towels with you, and do not leave your dog in the room unattended (unless it is in a kennel-cage by prior arrangement). In the interests of our other guests we also ask that dogs are kept out of the public rooms.
There is a supplement of £10 per night for having a dog in your room to cover the additional housekeeping required.
As Greshornish House is surrounded by a working sheep farm you are expected to keep your dog under close control at all times; this is particularly important around lambing time (April/May), when all dogs should be kept on a lead.
There are some great dog walks in the area and miles of forestry track where dogs can run without worry of sheep, so please do ask for advice as to where to go.
If your dog should happen to foul the lawns we would appreciate it if you would clean up after them.
Any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of your dog being here will be charged for.
We reserve the right to refuse or terminate an offer of accommodation including pets if our guidelines are not accepted.
