Boarding Kennels


It is with genuine sadness that I can now confirm Portree Kennels will not be re-opening. As many of our customers know, we have been closed during the summer for structural work to be carried out. In order to meet the updated licence conditions for re-opening, we need to do further upgrading structural work, and a ‘modernising’ refurbishment of the full building.  The costs involved to achieve such a project simply make it financially impossible for us to carry out what is required.  


We would like to sincerely thank all our clients past and present for their support, we will miss seeing all our gorgeous four-legged friends.  In addition to being a serious business blow, and as a family business creating a devastating financial situation, we genuinely believe that the kennels provided a vital local service to the people of skye (and many from over the bridge and the outer isles).


We will look into grants/fundraising and any other possible routes to reopening at some point in the future, but to be honest the current economic environment does not give me much hope.


Again, many thanks for all your custom and the many good wishes we have received since the decision was made.


Karen Augier & family.
