This is one of Jacky Roberts’ favourite places, the footpath runs all the way round the island and her dogs have grown up loving this place! Just be careful when walking near the edge of the path. Thanks for the photo Jacky!

Sometimes described as a miniature mountain range, Malvern Hills is for the adventurous walkers! This is Sarah Hill’s recommendation, she says ‘just beautiful for both us and our dogs’. Sarah kindly shared this lovely photo with us, stunning!

Dunnet Bay, Scotland

Margaret Goulden’s favourite place for dog walking is Dunnet Bay in Scotland. A lovely wide open beach, ideal if your dog loves swimming, or just a good long walk along the sand. There’s a car park next to the caravan park and just across the road is a lovely forest walk (which isn’t too strenuous)! Thanks Margaret for the photos.
