Sites and Monument Record: Callendar House Kennels (SMR 581)

Situated by the Glenbrae Lodge in the Callendar Policies. Single storey building aligned with its ridge N/S and porch at the south end. The whole is surrounded by an iron railing set on a dwarf wall. The building is shown on the 1st edition OS, but the porch only appears on the 2nd edition and probably dates to c1890.
Coursed whinstone with dressed sandstone margins and porch. Plain skews. The slate roof has been replaced by corrugated steel (c.2000) to keep the building watertight. Short stubby chimneys occur at either gable and are connected to flues in the east wall, designed to keep the chill off the dogs. The west wall contains four doors. Internal railed divisions created exercise yards for the animals.
