The 22-year-old is set to gain some valuable experience at the Lions of the North, who have just recently returned to the topflight.
With Highlands coach Owen da Gama a firm believer in youth, Bunting could well be afforded more playing opportunities as he looks to get a feel of first team football in a less pressured environment.
