Having a pampered pooch ourselves, we appreciate how difficult it can be to offer your dog a holiday that doesn’t involve the dreaded ‘kennel’ word!
We have several bedrooms where dogs are not permitted (for the comfort of guests who suffer with allergies). For this reason it is important that you mention your dog at the time of booking and that you try to make your booking well in advance, to avoid disappointment.
We are aware that some guests may be uncomfortable around dogs, or indeed suffer from allergies, so we do have a few house rules:
Dogs (except guide dogs) are not allowed in the larger of the two Guest Lounges or the Breakfast Room at any time, they are however permitted in the smaller Guest Lounge.
Dogs are not to be left alone in the bedrooms
A one-off charge of £10 is required to cover extra cleaning costs
Our pooch (posing for the camera!) are happy to loan out their large brass cage (guests must provide their own dog bedding), by prior arrangement, at no extra cost. The cage is large enough to take a labrador comfortably.
For your information there is a vet at Broadford (7 miles away), who also sells all kinds of dog food and accessories.
The Obbe (the harbour inlet that runs round the back of Kyleakin - inaccesible in parts at high tide), is a lovely walk for dogs. The Forestry Commission also have local trails ideal for dog walking.
Important: Always remember, the area holds a large population of deer and farm stock which roam freely in many places - please keep your dog under control at all times, do not let them worry farm stock. Also, please clean up after your dog - there are dog bins in Kyleakin.
