We love dogs and we are very happy to welcome friendly adult dogs and their owners.

Powdermills Bed and Breakfast in Inveraray is ideal for dogs. It has slate floors with rugs and direct access out into our secure 10-acre garden. We have established routes around the grounds that are perfect for an early morning or early evening walk with your dog.


If you want to walk your dog off-lead you can drive south to Ardcastle, and park in the forestry commission car park. It is a 15-minute drive and has miles of off-lead walking.
