Achnabreac Kennels & Cattery

“where every dog is an individual and every cat unique”


Kennel and cattery boarding facilities and dog grooming service covering Mid Argyll and beyond

Located approximately a mile and a half from Lochgilphead in the heart Argyll, Achnabreac Kennels is situated amidst the idyllic setting of Achnabreck Forest. Set within its own grounds, Achnabreac Kennels has expanded over the years to included a small cattery facility and recently a dog grooming service.

Architecturally designed, purpose built to current EEC standards and fully endorsed by Argyll and Bute Council, Achnabreac Kennels is a privately run, family business where emphasis is placed on both providing and delivering a happy, healthy and comfortable environment for all boarding animals.

"This is the third time I’ve used the AK grooming service and this time we went for the full monty ... Louise did everything I asked and Alfie looked exactly how I wanted.. Alfie even got to share a ham sandwich with Louise."

"Thank you for looking after our much loved puppy Seamus. I can only say thank you so much, Seamus loved being with you all."


"Our first visit with a view to using the kennels for our 12 month old puppy. Google maps is misleading about where it drops its location PIN, so be warned. But look for the kennel's own signs, and you'll be fine, though the undergrowth partly obscures them and needs cutting down. We were made welcome by staff and our puppy obviously felt right at home. She stayed for a couple of hours, and was reluctant to leave! We will be back!"


"Very friendly and professional, my dog loves all the staff. Louise has also kindly given sound advice when asked. I feel reassured that my dog will be well looked after when she is there."

Boarding Dogs

Here at Achnabreac Kennels dogs will have regular walks on one of the many designated forest tracks that Achnabreck Forest has to offer.

Day Boarding

At Achnabreac, we can offer a daily kennelling service to allow owners to go away, while leaving their dog safe and secure with us.


 All breeds of dog are groomed by Louise, who qualified with an Ofqual regulated Level 3 Dog Grooming Diploma from Glasgow Dog Grooming Academy.


Our purpose built cattery, is sited away from the main kennel building, and has been designed with security and comfort in mind.
