Hunterston Castle offers a unique location for your engagement, family and wedding photographs. A charming setting for newly married couples to include in their collection of memories of that special day.
Hunterston Castle in West Kilbride, North Ayrshire in Scotland has been home to the Clan Hunter for over 900 years. Situated on the Firth of Clyde, the estate was granted to the Hunters by David I of Scotland in the 12th century in return for the upkeep of royal hunting grounds. The original Hunters were Norman French and in the Middle Ages the chief of Clan Hunter was granted the hereditary title of Royal Huntsman. Since then the castle and grounds have been lovingly maintained to provide a warm welcome to visitors from all over the world.
