BECOMING A MEMBER OF CLAN HUNTER
Our Clan Hunter Associations are branches of The Hunter Clan of Scotland. Our purpose is to promote allegiance to our Clan Chief, promote Scottish culture, encourage the preservation of our proud Hunter heritage, support preservation of Hunterston Castle (our family seat), and encourage genealogy research.
Clan Hunter members are encouraged to visit Hunterston Castle, attend special gatherings held there, and participate in Scottish festivals held in many locations throughout the world. To keep members informed, newsletters are published annually. The official Clan Hunter Facebook site can be found at https://www.facebook.com/ClanHunterUK and several of our branches have national websites and Facebook pages.
Clan Hunter Association membership is open to those with the surname of Hunter, Hunt, Huntar, Huntress, and Hunta, descendants of someone with one of those surnames, and anyone in agreement with the purpose of the association.
