Attention: Hunterston Castle maintenance work

Hunterston Castle is currently undergoing some much-needed maintenance work. This is taking place on the outside of the castle and scaffolding is in place for the purpose. This will not affect the entrance to the castle and guided tours are expected to go ahead as usual.

Some areas outside the castle may be temporarily restricted for visitors while maintenance work is ongoing. We apologise for this and thank you in advance for your understanding.

During your visit, please be guided by our tour guides who will update you on the latest information regarding the maintenance work.
