Our first Beardie was Max who arrived in 1993 and was followed by Holly (Kilfinan Hillmaid at Chetcote) our foundation bitch.
We breed first and foremost to produce healthy, well-balanced dogs. Although most Bearded Collies are no longer used for herding, we aim to breed dogs that are constructed in a way that would allow them to work all day in the fields and highlands in which they were originally raised. Some might suggest our dogs may look "old-fashioned" and perhaps not as glamorous as others you may see. We like it that way.
