Hunterston House was originally built in 1799 in the grounds to provide more comfort for the family leaving the servants to stay in the castle and it was modernised and extended in 1835.
The first Hunters arrived at Ayrshire in the opening years of the 12th century, having come over from Normandy about four years after the Norman Conquest. Experts in hunting and fieldcraft with generations of experience in the forests of their land of origin, these Norman lords were invited to Scotland by King David I who was himself brought up in the Norman court in London.
