Our History: The practice was started in the early 1900s by Mr Niven MRCVS who lived and practiced from 13 Jackson Street, Inverurie. On Mr Niven’s death the house was sold and Mr Ironside moved the surgery to premises in a building behind the Victoria Hotel now the British Legion Club. The practice then moved premises to Nos 29/31 North Street. In 2001 the practice moved to its present location in our purpose built premises in Blackhall Industrial Estate. The Kintore branch was opened in September 2005.
