Welcome to Hunters of Kinross Butchers…

Traditional butchers with a wealth of experience and expertise

Hunters of Kinross is a traditional butcher’s shop, established in Kinross in 2008 by master butcher Iain Hunter and staffed by 5 full time skilled butchers with a combined experience of 140 years!

Iain Hunter – Proprietor

Iain is a Scottish Craft Butcher with over 30 years of experience in the trade, having previously managed some of the largest and finest butcher’s businesses in Edinburgh. He also took his skills all the way to Australia, where he worked with his family in their Scottish butcher’s shop in Melbourne to produce traditional Scottish black pudding and haggis. As well as producing these Scottish specialities, he and his wife Pamela also promoted them on national television and sold them to large department stores and delicatessens.

As a master butcher he is an expert at cutting and dressing all meats but is particularly well known for his venison butchery skills, and regularly gives demonstrations at trade fairs such as the Scottish Game Fair and the Scottish Butchers Trade Fair. Given his mastery, venison is one of Hunter’s specialities; we sell both roe deer and red deer, wild from the Perthshire hills.
