Forbes Of Kingennie :: Dog Friendly Dundee and Angus

Dog Friendly Dundee and Angus 






Forbes of Kingennie Country Resort

2 miles

Start at the entrance to our Woodland Lodges and take the path up to Wellbank. Once at the top of the path, take a right onto the farm track and follow the road up to the top of the farm and all the way around to bring you through the middle of our 9-hole golf course, towards the fishing ponds. The walk has a slight incline on the way up but offers great views over Dundee and the Angus Countryside.

Monikie Country Park

2 miles

Developed around two former reservoirs, this is a flat and open, waterside walk. The park is well maintained and in addition, it has a great outdoor kid’s play area and Byzantium Café open throughout the summer.

Flat, woodland and waterside walk. Like Monikie, Crombie is also well maintained.   The circuit is quite well sheltered by trees so it is a good one to opt for   in wet weather.

By Broughty Ferry



Finding a dog friendly place to eat couldn’t be simpler. Our Cairn O’ Mount bar is the ultimate countryside eatery, with a central log burning stove, solid natural stone flooring, Chesterfield leather booth seating and what’s more – it is dog friendly! You can come for a bite to eat and a drink or two by the fire. In summer, or even on a mild winters day, you can sit out on our covered veranda, with soft seating, log end features, and an outdoor fire. If it does get chilly, we have a supply of blankets to keep you warm.

Local Pet Shops

Millie's Pet Services is found at 69 High Street in Carnoustie, just a few miles from the resort. It's a treasure trove of dog goodies, from treats and toys, to dog food and bandannas, you could easily spend an hour in there! They also offer grooming. Afterwards, you can wander along to Gather, a dog-friendly Deli that has some delicious breakfast and lunch options. 


Scottish Access Code Reminder

  • Keep your dog on a short lead or close to heel when:
    • In a field where there are cows, horses or sheep.
    • In areas where ground-nesting birds are breeding and rearing their young. These areas include moorland, forests, grassland, loch shores and the seashore. Breeding season is usually April- July.
    •  Near Reservoirs and stream intakes as they can sometimes be used for public water supply.
    • In recreational areas and other public places, for example sports pitches and playing fields.
    • Don’t take your dog into:
      • Fields where there are lambs, calves and other young animals.
      • Fields of vegetables and fruit (unless you’re on a clear path).
      • Always clean up after your dog. We have lots of red dog waste bins dotted about the resort -  if you can’t find one, just ask a member of our team to point you in the right direction.
