Hunt Country The country in Fife currently hunted is mainly east of a line from Newburgh-on-Tay to Leven-on-Forth. It is undulating, a mixture of plough and old hilly grassland, and most of the jumps are timber. There are no adjacent Hunts. Best centres: Lindores, Letham, Logie and Ceres.
Hunt History The Hunt was started in 1786 by Alex Scrymgeour of Birkhill and has been hunted ever since: once over a vast country from Forfar in Angus through Fife and parts of Perthshire into Clackmannan. It was the home of such legendary figues as Whyte Melville and Anstruther Thomson, who moved the kennels to Ceres in 1874.
