Hunterston (also known as Huterston, Hunterstown)3918

Brief Description

Hunterston House and its core designed landscape of woodland and pasture survive in a degraded setting dominated by the Hunterston Nuclear Power Station and the Ore Terminal. Hunterston Castle, restored in the early-20th century, is now the home of the Hunter family.


The estate at Hunterston has been associated with the Hunter family since the 13th century. The house was built in the late-18th century to replace the castle as the main residence. By the mid-19th century the designed landscape included parkland, woodland and a walled garden. The castle was restored as the family home in the early-20th century. It now hosts gatherings of the Clan and is open once a year to the public.
