The interior is absolutely magnificent, especially the huge chapel and the stained glass windows throughout the house, the ceilings are also heavily decorated with astrological bodies.

When I first planned a trip to the Isle of Bute, I hadn't even heard of Mount Stuart but a friend recommended it to me and I'm extremely glad that he did. The property is the seat of the Marquess of Bute and the majority of the house now consists of a Victorian Gothic central section created for the 3rd... More

We chose a private tour of the house and it was well worth it. The opulence of the décor is to be seen to be believed. The Bute's known also to have built Cardiff Castle and Castle Koch have given the architects and craftsmen a free hand. Beautiful
