Place Study: Hunterston House, North Ayrshire, Scotland

hunterston-houseHunterston House was the family home of the Hunters

Hunterston House was built in 1799 and is just North of Hunterston Castle and half a mile away overlooking the River Clyde.

Nowadays, the families of Hunter/Hunter-Weston no longer reside in Hunterston House, but the house is a favorite Scottish film location.  This list of films have been used as a location shoot so might be of interest to Hunters to collect the dvds as myself.

I have been researching my family tree for over thirty-three years and a member of Clan Hunter. In 2015 I registered the surname Hunter with the Guild of One-Name Studies and this blog will be my goal to share my research, photos, and as the clan's travel agent 2017 I will be adding our Clan Hunter Gathering 2017 which was very special because our Clan Hunter's 30th Laird participated in the opening of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle August 5th, 10:30 p.m. with her clansmen. Find A Grave contributor #47833985 Being a travel agent since 1991 I am a SCOTSagent, BRITagent, and at the present have two group tours to Scotland in 2017. One is a Clan Hunter Gathering at Hunterston Castle given by Madam Pauline Hunter of Hunterston, 30th Laird of Clan Hunter.
