Top Dogs is back!

Dog lovers invited to come and have a fun day out with their four-legged family members

Our popular FREE Top Dog event – featuring all things dog friendly – is back on Saturday 4th May at Loch Lomond Shores from 10am to 4pm.

Audrey Calder from Loch Lomond Shores is delighted to showcase the visitor attraction’s dog-friendly status:

“This event is great fun and it’s a real treat to welcome such a range of gorgeous dogs to Loch Lomond Shores!

“Many of our stores including Sports Direct, Frasers, Catherine Kinloch and Hawkshead welcome well-behaved dogs in-store and Café Zest even has a dedicated dog-friendly area within their café so visitors can enjoy time indoors as well as outdoors with their pets. Jurassic Ice, on our first floor, also allows well-behaved dogs on to their balcony so you can enjoy a sweet treat, snack or drink while enjoying the views and taking a breather from the fun.”
