Portree Kennels will not be reopening, its owner has confirmed.
Karen Augier took to Facebook to share the news. The kennels had been closed throughout the summer for structural work. Karen stated on Facebook: "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."
Karen also stated that she would explore other avenues for funding and look at any possible routes to reopening in the future. For the moment, however, the kennels doors remain closed.
