I visited the Centre yesterday and had a thoroughly fantastic time. Fiona and Allan's enthusiasm and knowledge were inspirational and the dogs were amazing! The journey through the forest with the dogs was definitely the highlight of an experience which was worth every minute of the drive up from Glasgow!

We went on the kennel visit and museum tour. Great comms with Fiona beforehand to set up the visit and it was an interesting and thorough talk by Alan on the history of sledding and his families part in that. After that it was wonderful to see the red dog team set off on a training run and then to... More

We had a very interesting morning with Fiona and Alan as we heard about the history of sled dogs, their breeding and sled dog racing before meeting the lovely bunch of sled dogs that are so much a part of the Stewart family. They range from young dogs in the early stages of training through to retired veterans who remain... More

If you want an insight in to the history of working sled dogs and the reality of training and racing sled dogs, then we cannot recommend this highly enough. We were there with our 14 and 16 year old boys and as teenagers, it can be hard to impress them but they loved it. They are adventurous types anyway but... More

I bought this for my boyfriends birthday present, we both loved the day despite the cold - thankfully there was some snow left! Everyone including the dogs were very friendly and welcoming. Thank you for making us welcome and our day special, from Charlotte & Be

On arrival we were warmly welcomed and that was a theme that continued throughout the day. We were lucky enough to visit in January during some heavy snow so the conditions were ideal for a sleddog safari and the views were nothing short of stunning. We were told early on that "This won't be the Disney version" and it didn't... More

This is one of my favorite activities from my vacations. The coolest part is the weather does not have to be freeze to your face cold. It just has to be low enough for the dogs to run. Its like a rollercoaster without the hieghts but all the thrills. The dogs are awesome. So is the museum. When I went... More

Myself and my fiancé visited the sled dog centre for the kennel tour. It was lovely to meet the dogs and hear about their training. It's a very hands on experience and a real must for dog lovers. Needless to say we are hoping to come back in the near future and get involved in the sledding itself! Thank you... More

Thought we would just go on a ride for 30mins and that was that but we were shown how they train them, food they eat and the things the owner and family have done in the past with them. Worked with Attenborough, bear grylls, done races 1200 miles long. I was amazed on how strong the dogs were and amazed... More
