Hunterston House

A somewhat untidy mansion overlooking Hunterston Sands and what is now an industrial landscape of nuclear power stations and the immense Hunterston Terminal, Hunterston House was built c.1799 to replace the nearby Hunterston Castle. It is in-part pink harled but this sits oddly with an otherwise rambling very Victorian-looking house of three storeys and an attic studded with dormer windows. On the seaward side a lookout tower rises a storey beyond the attic. Inside there is fine panelling and plasterwork dating from c.1920 by Robert Lorimer (1864 - 1929).
