Don't even think about not going in the house its way better than your usual aristo pad. We were lucky to have a guide called Anne who brimmed with enthusiasm and knowledge. In the grounds the coastal walk is really good.Also if you like your trees there are some real rarities here.

This place is absolutely stunning and I would defiantly recommend a visit! We visited as part of a coach tour so I'm not sure if the same would apply to all but on our visit we had a guided tour in a group of about 15-20 by a young blond lady who seemed to be quite knowledgable with some nice...

Having been highly recommended by friends and relatives we now agree that this is a Must Do. We traveled by boat from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay. purchasing the combined sail and house entry ticket offered at the ticket desk. We later read that OAPs do better to purchase house entry at the house as the discount is better. However at... More

The mini bus from the entrance to the House was so good for the older/infirm visitor. The restaurant a good place to regroup.

I together with several relatives attended a wedding at Mount Stuart, and it was a wholly pleasurable experience! the Gothic architecture of the main house is spectacular and the white marble chapel in which the ceremony was held is truly magical, the staff are protective of the environment as a doting parent might be with their child, and who can...

I visited the Mount Stuart . Isle Of Bute with many others on a coach tour with a company I feel I cannot mention or promote right now. The whole experience of this beautiful Gothic style Building was one of breathless emotion. One of the elderly male guests with my party had a bad start to the tour when he... More

A bit expensive to get in, but all things are nowadays. Playpark outside the grounds for the children, so you could just park at the side, have a picnic and let the kids play without paying to get in. You cannot enter the house without being booked on a guided tour, we had hoped to just wander around but this... More

We were on the Isle of Butt for a night, went to visit Mount Stuart next morning. It was lovely to see the house. It was a pity the day we went it was raining. The gardens were lovey.

Staggering history, and easy on the eye. Great day trip to Bute must include this awesome house. We stopped off at the Creggans Inn on our way back for a great meal. We lunched at Mount Stuart cafe which was fine.
