Bringing your Pet to Stay
We consider pets to be part of the family and are happy to welcome your assistance and companion dogs to Staffa House. There is an extra charge for this new service and some rules apply to ensure that all Staffa Houses’ residents are happy including our other guests and our two cats!
As it’s the room closest to the front door we use our twin room on the ground floor (Eorsa) for companion dogs and allow only 2 dogs on site at any given point. The charge for using our room is £10 for the first night and then £5 for each extra night that you stay with us. This is a room fee and not a per pet fee. If your dog causes any damage during your stay at Staffa House you will be liable for that.
We want you and your pet to have a happy and successful stay and will do what we can to help make that happen. In the meantime:
- Please bring any bedding, feeding bowls, food, treats, leads, doggy bags and toys that you need to keep your pet happy and comfortable. If you forget anything just ask and we will provide what we can.
- Please keep your dog on their lead around the house.
- Pets are allowed in the Guest Lounge but not in the Dining Room.
- Please don’t let your dog climb onto the beds or any other furniture. We know that this can be a difficult rule to enforce but we’d ask that you try!
- We will leave some old towels in the porch and ask that muddy paws are cleaned before entering the house. Please do not use the towels in the bedroom for this – we can always provide more old towels if necessary.
- Please don’t leave your dog alone in your room except at meal times. We’d prefer to have you at the breakfast table but if your companion is distressed by your absence then ask and we’ll see if there is another way to make sure you get your meal.
- No ball games in the garden! As we grow a lot of our own fruit and vegetables, we’d ask you to play with the dog outside where the beach is only a stones-throw away. Same with toileting. Not in the garden as far as possible.
There are ancient common grazing rights on Mull and you will see unfenced cattle and sheep around Fionnphort and beyond. It is very important to keep your dog on a lead and to pick up poops to protect local livestock and wildlife.
