This Boarding Kennels & Grooming Parlour has two fully renovated croft houses and sundry out buildings including a four berth garage .In 2003 an extension was added to the kennels, increasing the capacity of dogs to be held at any one time to 35. This new extension consists of large pens each designed to board two 20 stone St Bernard dogs. Each pen has its own secure exercise area and, in addition to that, the dogs are exercised in a large grassed area from which they cannot escape.
