Bankhead House & Kennels can be found nestled in an accessible and quiet rural part of Aberdeenshire, less than a mile from the village of Auchterless, Turriff. This exciting and thriving dog boarding business is on offer along with an attractive period farmhouse boasting ample living accommodation and traditional features.

Bankhead Kennels is a successful luxury boarding kennels business, established in 2014 by its current owners, which is a highly regarded facility welcoming all canine breeds for short, medium and long-term stays at the modern and purpose-built facility.

The building, which is located alongside the detached family home, was constructed with every detail taken into consideration in order to provide all pooches with a comfortable and stress-free stay, including underfloor heating to the sleeping areas. The business is fully self-contained within the kennel building, keeping it separate from the house. Included is a dedicated office, accessible toilet, dog shower and prep kitchen along with ample storage. The boarding areas have been designed with canine comfort and ease of use in mind, whereby every compartment is fitted with pulley-operated hatches, full length drainage channels for easy cleaning and a dedicated sluice room.

Dating back to around 1880, Bankhead House is an attractive detached traditional property which provides spacious 4-bedroom accommodation over two floors.
