The Hunters have had their roots at Hunterston in North Ayrshire since the latter years of the 11th Century. It is one of the few Scottish Families to still reside at its original place of settlement in Scotland. Hunterston Castle is the traditional seat of the Hunter family of Hunterston.

The aim of the 30th Laird, Madam Pauline Hunter of Hunterston, is to provide a focal point for all Hunter Clan members worldwide, by ensuring that Hunterston Castle is preserved for present and future generations of Hunters. The Castle provides the perfect centre for all the Clansfolk. Restoration of the front of the Castle and the creation of a Clan Hunter Genealogy Library will help to strengthen the traditions of the Clan.

Gatherings are held every three years and are fostering a strong sense of togetherness that makes the Hunters into a very distinctive Clan.
