Interesting and beautiful setting, but no signs to say when it opened and closed. The brochure said it was bizarrely shut end of August, yet was open in Sept because island was busy. No signs on Visitor Centre at all....give us a clue guys!!

Visited this House on Monday. Gosh its a long walk from the car park to the house. Took the guided tour but the guide was poor and did not make the experience enjoyable. The place is fantastic and ornate but hardly homely. The painting must be worth a fortune.

It is one of the most wonderful experiences anyone who visits Bute can have. I most definitely recommend it. The white marble chapel is magnificent.
