Huntly was the eldest son of the 5th Earl of Aboyne (later Marquess of Huntly) and his wife, Catherine. He was educated at St John's College, Cambridge, and entered Parliament in 1818 as a Tory MP for East Grinstead before being elected as a Whig MP for Huntingdonshire in 1830. From 1826 to 1830, he was a Lord of the Bedchamber and then a Lord-in-Waiting from 1840 to 1841, his last office being that of Lord Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire from 1861 until his death.

Huntley played first-class cricket for Hampshire, Middlesex, Kent, Surrey and Marylebone Cricket Club in an amateur career which stretched from 1819 to 1843.
He also appeared for W Ward's XI, the Players, the Gentlemen, the Married, Lord Strathavon's XI (his own club) and the Gentlemen of Kent. In 33 matches he scored a total of 193 runs, with a highest score of 19 against Oxford University, at an average of 4.02.
