Opening meets attract large crowds to Scotland’s hunts

Monday, 4 November 2013

Countryside Alliance director for Scotland Jamie Stewart attended the Berwickshire hunt’s meet at Manderston House, Duns, Berwickshire on Saturday (2 November), where the field included his wife Clare and four-year-old son Ted (pictured).
