Collie Rough




John and Joan Collings arrived in Australia in May 1969. John and Joan bought their first Collie Rough *CH Fairloch Prince Khaun whom they purchased from Erwin and June Stangl of Fairloch kennels in December 1969. Later in 1971 registered and founded the famous  Schiehallion Kennels. John and Joan started showing their kennel breed of Collie's through out NSW Australia, with the help of four wonderful sons and one  daughter Tracy who started showing from the tender age of six years old. Tracy continues to this day to show Collie Rough's and has taken over the sucessful Schiehallion Kennel Prefix in 2004. In 2004 Tracy bred her first Schiehallion Litter of Collie's and continue's to breed successful show dogs and the most loving collie's to this day!

Schiehallion in Perthshire is one of Scotland's best known landmarks and hills.

Translated as ‘fairy hill of the Caledonians’, Schiehallion is 3,547 ft (1,083 m) high, has an almost perfect conical shape when viewed from the west and enjoys a splendid isolation from other peaks. Hillwalkers, locals and visitors alike affectionately regard this hill as the `Matterhorn of Perthshire`
