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.

Unlock the secrets of Hunterston Castle: Your backdrop for a stunning photoshoot
Tucked away between West Kilbride and Largs, lies Hunterston Castle. Standing proud, yet serene, the Grade-I listed Pele Tower belies a history spanning over 900 years. The Vikings have come and gone, valiant soldiers and Hunter Lairds have marched through its time-honoured lands, feted dignitaries and fought tirelessly for king and country.
History, ancestry, family values are woven into the fabric of the building. The seasons, leaving their mark on the ancient stone masonry, have only served to strengthen the impermeable structure and enriched the hues and colours on which the light can work its magic.
Let your camera unlock the secrets of Hunterston Castle.
