Travelling in a motorhome is the perfect way to get back in touch with nature, explore the world around you and enjoy quality time with those you love most.
For many of us, however, the ones we love the most aren't only our human companions but our pets.
It’s for this reason that Struans Leisure offers a range of pet friendly motorhomes for hire to our customers in Scotland.
We want to help make sure that your motorhome rental holiday is as fun and enjoyable as possible, and with a pet friendly motorhome hire from Struans you can be sure that you and your pet can travel together safely and legally, wherever you might end up!
It’s no secret that humans and dogs have a close bond. For many of us, our dogs stay by our side night and day, and the idea of a holiday without our four-legged friend just doesn't feel right.
But when travelling abroad or staying in a hotel or B&B, it’s not always possible to bring your dog along with you. In fact, it’s often impossible to do all the things you have planned with a loyal pup by your side. This leaves dog owners with a hard decision; go on holiday without your dog, leaving him or her in a kennel or with a friend, or don’t go on holiday at all.
We feel neither of these options is particularly attractive.
Therefore, we’ve made sure to include a variety of pet friendly motorhomes and campervans within our motorhome hire stock to give dog owners the option of an incredible holiday where their dog can come along and join in the fun.
We feel a motorhome rental holiday is the perfect type of holiday to have a dog (or other pet) along for the ride due to the fresh air, nature and long walks that you will inevitably experience.
We offer dog friendly motorhome hires in Scotland in the following sizes:

Wondering why you should choose a dog friendly motorhome hire in Scotland?
First of all, Scotland has an abundance of green space. If you choose to travel around Scotland in one of our pet friendly motorhomes, you’ll be met with rolling hills, wide open landscapes, deserted beaches and plenty of woodland trails.
As you can imagine, dogs thrive in these types of environments. As you travel from place to place in your motorhome, you’ll never be short of long walks where you and your dog can roam freely and enjoy the sanctitude of Scotland’s nature.
What is more, Scotland is littered with historical and cultural sites where your dog can join in the fun. Whether it’s an old castle, a famous outdoor monument or a quaint cultural town or village, bringing your dog along for the ride will very rarely be an issue.
Scotland and the UK are blessed with a very accommodating dog culture. You won’t be short of fantastic dog friendly pubs, cafes and restaurants as you travel in your pet friendly motorhome.
To check which places will be best suited for you and your dog ahead of time, you can use this excellent site, Dog Furiendly, which conveniently allows users to search a location for nearby dog friendly spots
If you’re the type of person who likes to enjoy the great outdoors with your dog or other pet by your side, then travelling across Scotland in a pet friendly motorhome is tailor made for you!
If you only plan to travel in Scotland, England or Wales during your motorhome rental holiday, then the law you need to abide by is the same rule for cars. In the Highway Code, rule 57 states that:
“When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals”
Really, this is basic common sense. However, it’s important to be aware of this rule not just so you are in line with the law but also so that both you, your passengers and your pet all remain safe whilst travelling in a pet friendly motorhome.
