The most Northerly pack of Foxhounds in the UK – The Kincardineshire Hunt is the only truly private pack of hounds in Scotland and, probably, in the UK. The area hunted is in the North East of Scotland with boundaries: North – Fraserburgh – East – Peterhead – West – Huntly – South – Stonehaven.
The Kincardineshire Foxhounds were formed in July 1997 following the disbandment of the Grampian Foxhounds and are one of the most recent pack of hounds to be registered by the M.F.H.A. (Masters of Foxhounds Association)
