The Pointer Club of Scotland was established in 1979 by a group of Pointer enthusiasts, resident in Scotland. The first Open Show was held the following year and in 1982 the KC granted Championship Show status to the Club. The Club organises an Open Show in March of each year at Coulter in South Lanarkshire and its Championship Show in October at Barony College near Dumfries.
The Club held its first Summer Field Trials on Grouse for Pointers and Setters in 1980 at the Marquis of Linlithgow’s Leadhills Estate, initially with a Novice Stake then with the addition of an Open Stake two years later. The Scottish field trial clubs then established a Spring Field Trials circuit on Grouse in the far north of Scotland and the Pointer Club of Scotland continues to run Spring and Summer trials annually in the Highlands. The Spring trial is held at Farr Estate and the Summer trial is at Cawdor Estate.
Additionally the club has organised various seminars, Field Trial demonstration days and Judges Education Seminars
