Rhiconich is a small local authority licenced breeding/showing kennel located close to the birthplace of Princess Margaret and the Angus Glens.

1994 after the loss of our Cocker Spaniel Cindy we were not to have another dog…only a few months later because she had left a big hole in our family we decided we would get a Beagle in fact 2. We were able to find breeders Eleanor and Frank Bothwell who then lived near Ayr and were due to have a litter in the not to distant future.

We were allowed to have Norcis Star Turn – Misty – and Eleanor put us in touch with Colin and Denise Ashmore in Lincolnshire who sold us Buttermere Truelass – Jodi – a month later. My first venture into the show ring was with Misty in August 1995 at SKC  when there were still CC’s awarded for the breed at that show….Misty was first in MPB and had qualified for Crufts…..Hooked.

I bred my first litter in 1998 from Misty. 1999 saw my first venture into judging and now I am currently on The Kennel Club A1 Judging List.

All Hounds are either Tested Clear or Hereditarily Clear for MLS and NCCD
