The Fife Bloodhounds

The Fife Bloodhounds was formed in May 2023 to hunt the Clean Boot in Fife and the surrounding area. The pack is based near St Andrews and is registered with the Masters of Draghounds and Bloodhounds Association (MDBA). Bloodhound hunting, known as “clean boot” hunting, is quite distinct from any other form of hunting, where the hounds follow the natural scent of a human runner. No artificial or animal scents are used.

‘A New Pack in Old Country’

Hunting is the glue that holds many rural communities together but we must adapt in order to keep this tradition alive. Picking up where its predecessors left off, the Fife Bloodhounds are doing just that.

The Season

The season runs from mid-October to the end of March, and we meet on Sundays at 11am, with some mid-week hunts during the holidays. This is with the kind permission of the landowners and farmers, whose support is very much appreciated. Details of each individual day can be found on our events page.

The Experience

We are a welcoming and friendly pack where riders and foot followers alike can enjoy watching the hounds skillfully follow the line of the runners or ‘quarry’. Riders may follow either of 2 field masters, depending on whether they wish to jump and at what pace they would like to follow. There is no necessity to jump and there will always be someone to help you if you get into difficulty.
