Hunter History ~ The Hunterston Brooch

In the Autumn of the year 1830 two estate labourer were working on the field drains at the foot of Hawking Craigs, and came on a Brooch laying in the grass. The Brooch was acquired by Robert Hunter of Hunterston and later sold by his widow in 1891 to The Museum of Antiquities.

In 2017 on the group tour I had we visited the Museum of Scotland and many of us saw the real Hunterston Brooch.Hunterston Brooch
