Welcome to the Setters in Scotland group!

I'm just curious to see how many of us Scots are here!

Hope you don't mind me joining ;-) I have a Gordon setter and am Swiss but live in Edinburgh.

Hello Nicole,

Of course I don't mind - I was just sitting her by myself til you showed up!

I love Gordon Setters too but two Irish are enough for me at the moment!

Thanks for joining, maybe we will organise a big Scottish setter meet one day? Do you show your Gordon? I am just starting out in showing with my new pup.

Of course all are welcome, I don't want to exclude anyone at all as everyone has been very lovely to me! I am interested in seeing how many owners are around 'locally' as we have only ever meet one or two setter owners on our walks.

I also thought it might be nice to ask about favourite walks, dog friendly places to stay and eat - some local knowledge which might be use to anyone visiting Scotland for shows or holidays?

Good idea Linda. Just thought I'd let you all know about some where I regularly stop on the A9 when I'm back and forth to shows, it's the House of Bruar. If you go round the back there is a lovely walk up by the waterfall where I let my dogs stretch their legs. If we're on our way home from showing I also let them relax by going for a little paddle at the bottom end where it is fairly shallow. Another thing worth noteing is that they've added a shaded area in the car park for dog owners. Unfortunately they've forgotten to add a dog waste bin anywhere but there are ordinary bins dotted around you just have to make the extra effort to find them. Hope this info is useful to someone :-)

Thanks Jennifer,

I hope you manage to resist the temptation to shop there!? My friend works there as their web designer - he says their home-made soup is lovely, but a bit expensive, like everything else. Maybe I will stop by on my way back from Craigellechie some time and see for myself. That waterfall sounds nice.

Hi there all.
Jennifer is the place well signposted??? I was talking to Nicole and she suggested that it might be nice if we could find somewhere we could all go and walk the dogs, it would make a great picture lots of setters running together.
Something just came to me it may be out of the way, but St Andrews beach is huge and at the end of the summer there wont be many people... anyone got any better suggestions or another idea?????

The House of Bruar looks very good, indeed. Thanks very much Jennifer. We'll try that one out sometime too when we're in the area.
St. Andrews sounds good, Dee. It would be great to have a setter day out :-)

I used to live in Scotland...and I own Setters...do I qualify for membership? (If it helps sway you, I left my heart in Scotland when I returned to Australia...)
