Have you every dreamed of seeing a Scottish castle in person? Especially, if you know that the castle was built by your own ancestors?
In 2014 I attended my very first Clan Hunter International Gathering at Hunterston Castle which was built c. 1107. Then in 2017 I attended another. Below are just a few of my photos from those wonderful days following in the footsteps of my Huntar/Hunter ancestors.
I am so excited to have the help of our Hunters working together and sharing their family stories, photos, data and even recently their DNA study.
Being a member of the Guild of One-Name Studies I decided to start a DNA project of my own for the Hunter Surname Study of DNA.
I asked for seven males and who would think I have those Hunter males already. Thank you to all who have decided to help me in this study to find our common ancestor to our ancestral home in Scotland.
