Having been to Rothesay on many occasion when young had Mount Stuart on our list of things to do. Was most certainly a good choice and did not disappoint. Although you are not aloud to take pictures inside the magnificent outside buildings and garden are superb

Mount Stuart - AMAZING Architecture, Building Elements and Grounds We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! From across the pond, had not heard of this site - cannot imaging why, as Mount Stuart is exceptional! The Architecture and Building Elements were wonderful - especially the stained glass! The grounds alone are worth a long visit. Highly recommend the site! Looking forward to... More

Would definitely recommend a visit to Mount Stuart House if in the vicinity. It is a great gothic house with fantastic architecture especially inside, and huge grounds to roam around in. The cafe in the courtyard serves a decent selection of food and drinks. The only downside is that the tour is a little rushed and there isn't the time... More

I've been here a couple of times. Its a nice walk around the grounds & the kids had fun. Plenty of open space to run about. They enjoyed the play area near the car park. Its a nice way to spend a few hours of a Sunday.

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
