One of the best stately homes in Scotland. The marble hall is more rich and elegant than you can imagine and there is nothing that comes close to the marble chapel, all white marble and beautiful stained glass. There are amazing details throughout the house. Simply stunning. The gardens are well worth a wander as well.

A large beautiful stately home with an ornate chapel.Guided tour was very informative and entertaining.No photography allowed inside the house.Gardens are sprawling but was a rainy day and couldnt do it justice. Visitor centre is modern and the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Would suggest going on a sunny day to make the most of the house and gardens.Also... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and the place itself was breathtaking - we would have liked to have seen much more than we did

This is truly a Scottish treasure from the vast grounds to the actual house. You can't help but be amazed by this house as you move from room to room, there is a tour guide in every room who were fantastic with a wealth of knowledge. You can easily spend a full day here. We had an 11 year old... More

We had travelled to Bute using the Waverley so arrived just before one- the next bus was not for an hour so hired a taxi to get us to the house- worth the cost since the driver gave us an impromptu guided tour on the route. On arrival discovered that the house was only opened for guided tours which were... More

Mount Stuart consists of huge gardens and the massive Mount Stuart house itself. The visitor centre contains a cafe, gift shop and clean toilets. We opted to see the house and gardens, on the 5th of July this was classed as a free flow day ie you go round the house at your own pace rather than on a guided... More

As we had heard from many people that Mount Stuart was well worth a visit, four of us worked a visit into our itinerary while doing Calmac's Five Ferry Tour earlier this week. I checked the website and saw that there was a children's jamboree on Wednesday, 15th. July but reckoned, correctly, that it would not affect us and decided... More
