Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

Edited: 9th April 2019

M74 junction 16 Services doggiestop, Scotland

Description

There is a generous amount of exercise space at this service station, although dogs are safer on leads – not only because of the nearby roads but also to avoid confrontations with the resident swans. Good idea to check where you're walking, as there can be a lot of evil smelling bird poo underfoot.

Details

Usual motorway services, with a choice of restaurants and cafés. Shops. Wi-Fi. Outside patio area. Picnic tables around the lake.  Dog water provided, dog poo bins.

Walk

There is a generous amount of exercise space at this service station, although dogs are safer on leads – not only because of the nearby roads but also to avoid confrontations with the resident swans.  There is direct access to the loch and exercise area from behind the Premier Travel Inn at the far side of the car park. This will bring you to a large grassy area and a short walk around the kidney shaped loch. The volume of fowl droppings close to the water’s edge can be unpleasant.

The track around the lake and beaches were THICK with dog faeces - fossilised and fresh - really unpleasant - but at least the dog did get some exercise and we could get a coffee.
