Mhor 84 is a motel, restaurant, bar and cafe – the perfect stop on the A84 road to the Highlands. Everyone’s welcome – walkers, cyclists, joggers, dogs and locals.
The lovely restaurant not only offers great meals with local produce but also provides a special dog-friendly menu developed by BBC Radio Scotland Resident Vet and Pets ‘n’ Vets partner Ross Allan!

Could it get any more accommodating?
Dogs are welcome in our Lounge Bar and The Melville, as well as the Reception area of the Hotel. The Royal is also very dog friendly, with our four legged friends welcome to stay overnight.

Nicky-Tams, one of the oldest pubs in Stirling, opened in 1718 and was originally owned by Laird Graigengelt, the family crest of which is still visible above their doors.
Alan’s Pet Chop is a family run specialist pet shop that is worth visiting. Lots of treats plus a walk-on scale for dogs (for when there’s been too many treats??). Knowledgeable and very helpful staff.
A great lunch spot to stop on the way with one of the best beer garden in Scotland (we think!). Dogs are welcome in the lounge, Z’s Bar&Bistro but not the Riverview restaurant. They even stock dog treats for your pooches.
