Travelling with your dog on public transport in Scotland
There are a number options if you want to travel on public transport with your dog in Scotland. This means that you do not necessarily have to take the car if you want to stay in dog friendly accommodation or holiday in Scotland. The train is the best public transport option if you are wanting to travel throughout Scotland, as the bus companies that cover Scotland, such as Scottish Citylink, National Express or Megabus do not allow dogs other than guide dogs on board. I have travelled with my dog on the train and it was generally a good experience and as long as they are ok with not getting to the toilet for a period of time then it is a good option. It obviously helps if your dog is used to crowds and I have been offered a bowl of water for my pooch by the friendly train staff. What are your thoughts on dogs being on trains? Some of them are better behaved than the people who seem to think a train is just a mobile pub e.g. somewhere to get as drunk as possible?
