Yes of course. We very much welcome dogs in the park and all we ask is that owners are responsible and keep their dog under control at all times. Dogs should be on a lead within and around our Courtyard, in Khyber Field and in any areas where there is a sign up to notify that there are ground nesting birds. Dogs are not permitted in the children’s playpark. Visit the Scottish Outdoor Access Code for more information.

*please remember to pick up after your dog and dispose in the bins provided or take the bag home with you if not possible.
