Hunterston is located 30 miles south west of Glasgow in the north and 30 miles north of Ayr in the south. It is very easy to find using the road network. There is also a train station at the villages of Fairlie and West Kilbride which are located 2 miles away, so can be good if you want a leisurely walk. If traveling by car just pop the Post Code (zip) KA23 9QG into your sat nav and you will be directed right to the door!
At present the castle is closed to the general public except one day a year usually the last Sunday of October, however if you are a member of the Clan Hunter Association you can arrange a tour by appointment only. Due to the age of the castle and amount of narrow stairs wheelchair access is unfortunately not available.
The grounds surrounding the castle are open all year round to the general public to walk around and explore the area due to 99% of it being public right of way.
