Decided at the last minute to get away for a few days to self catering accommodation in Mount Stuart & have to admit there are not enough words to describe how wonderful this venue was. Well equipped with everything you will ever need I am truly counting the days until my next trip. Thank you to all the Bute Estate... More

Although I live on the island I have really enjoyed my visits to Mount Stuart. I do not normally have any interest in stately homes or castles and so on but I first visited it with my wife as does like this sort of thing. Then, when her brother visited us he expressed an interest but she didn't want to... More

take the tour, read up. Mount Stuart has incredible art, floor to ceiling, and wonderful views and gardens. My local Scottish cousin volunteered here for many years, and she was more than willing to take us around the place -- she'd been there hundreds of times but (even at an advanced age) was still fired up by the place. That... More

Whilst on a Lochs and Glens coach tour with Highland Heritage (another review waiting to be written) visited Mount Stewart house. Firstly, it was raining when we arrived, so looking around the gardens would have meant getting extremely wet. One of the downsides of coach tours is that you don't have wet gear with you! The gardens certainly looked very... More

This trip was included in one of our day excursions on our Lochs & Glens holiday & to be honest we wasn't looking forward to it that much but boy was we totally enthralled with our Tour, the whole house is absolutely fascinating from the architecture the priceless paintings & ornaments to the exquisite finishing touches in every room which...

My Hungarian wife and I tend to avoid paying to visit the homes of the rich and privileged but a visit to Mount Stuart House, home of the Marquess of Bute, was included in a Lochs & Glens coach trip so we went along. The house was officially closed on that day, specially opened for our party. However the shop... More

the gardens were great and the house showed what could be achieved with limitless funds and very little taste

Is there a more complete attraction on Bute? This has the history, the architecture, brilliant tour guides, cafe & food shop and huge grounds to explore. There's a great play area for children and it's just a terrific place to spend a day. There's something for everyone here.
