We visited on a rather rainy day in July but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We took the ferry from Wymess Bay and then caught a local bus to Mount Stuart as this is much cheaper than taking the car on the ferry. We took the mini bus from the visitors centre to the house and enjoyed a very informative tour. We... More

wow, this is a sumptuous folly. About as posh a place as you can imagine, and then some. You have a feeling that this money could well have been spent a little more productively

We visited in early August this year and the weather was unsurprisingly good. We opted for tickets for the gardens only as my three year old has little interest in, or appreciation of gothic architecture! The gardens are expansive-the walk up to the house was longer than I expected, which was nice as there was loads to take in. There... More

Initially was disappointed that at arriving at Mount Stuart to find the House was not open as there was a wedding on that day. However we decided to go a walk in the grounds and did the shore walk which we enjoyed and walked up passed the house which we will have to go back and visit at some point.... More

We were here for a wedding. Very imposing building, very gothic looking from outside. Beautiful grounds. Luckily the sun was shining. The chapel was awesome but icy cold as lots of marble. Great hall was amazing and we had the evening reception here. Slightly cold as such a big room to heat but it didn't spoilt the overall effect or... More

Fine old castle built in the Victorian era. There are wonderful guides in every room who are only too happy to share with you their knowledge of the history of the house and the art. Well worth a visit.

We went as part of a coach trip included excursion. Beautiful building, beautiful gardens, fantastic artifacts throughout. One of the best days I have ever had out. There were plenty well informed people available throughout the building, telling interesting facts about the history of the building and the people who had lived in it. The only thing I think they... More

We as a family group ageing 14-75 had a great day out - there is something for everyone. Mount Stuart is a truly unique and stunningly beautiful place/family home. We'd go again 😀

If visiting Bute do not miss this place! The house is out of this world, the tour guides are simply brilliant. The 3rd Marquess of Bute was no doubt from the future who went back to the Victorian times and built the most fantastic and modern house. 1st place built for electricity, with a phone, indoor heated swimming pool etc....
