Tremendous Stately Home which is well worth a visit and well worth paying for the upgraded tour on offer as you can access parts of the building not accessible to the general public.
Plenty of history and wonderful Architecture laid out on a few levels....More
This place is so beautiful I can’t get it out of my head for days after a visit. The interior is awe inspiring, the atmosphere is calm and peaceful, it’s pure joy to wonder around inside the house. In addition the grounds, woods, old trees,...More
Mount Stuart is a must in the Isle of Bute. You can walk around on your own, but when I was there, they offered a free excursion around (I only had to pay for a ticket). The interior is amazing, focusing on details, what make...More
There is so much beauty and history packed into the massive house. I wish I could have disappeared into it for days! The detail is incredible and the stories behind it are even better. I loved the star ceiling and unabashedly laid down in the...More
We visited on 21 November and were the only 2 people on the tour. This meant that effectively we had a private tour of this amazing house. Kevin was our guide and he had an enviable extensive knowledge of the history of the house, it’s...More
The Mount Stuart house on the Isle of Bute is a beautiful example of 19th century neo-gothic architecture. It's amazing to see how the "other half" lived in the "good old days". This "home" is a beautiful example of the opulent style of living by...More
Absolutely extraordinary house which should not be missed. Family history interesting too. Lovely grounds which deserve to be further explored. Am sure we will revisit. All staff we came across were friendly and helpful too.

Mount Stuart was probably the most memorable thing on the island. Really quite spectacular and the tour was very informative. Definitely not to be missed. It's the jewel on the island It's a beautiful drive around the island too. On arrival Rothesay looks pretty from the boat but is a little run down on closer inspection but don't let that put you off a really beautiful peaceful as relaxing island. We stayed for a week and left feeling thoroughly recharged.
Hello and greetings from Denmark, once again... In February I asked for advice in this forum as I wanted to decide what islands should I visit in my next trip (in July). I booked a couple of weeks ago a tour and I wanted to share this with you. It is a garden related tour visiting: Mount Stuart and Ascog Fernery on Bute, Achamore Gardens on Gigha, An Cala Gardens, Arduaine, Crarae and Benmore Botanic Gardens. 3 nights and 4 days. I tried this company in 2006. It was an...More

Looks really good, although these gardens are not all on islands, of course.
Cruise stop in Rothesay (6 Replies)
What's the best way to get to Mount Stuart and the Victorian toilets from the cruise port?

Cruise Port? Can you clarify? Are you coming off a Cruise at Greenock? Greenock is on the Mainland, Rothesay is the Principle Town on the Island of Bute. To get to Bute, you would need to take a Taxi from Greenock Port to Port Glasgow Station, then a Train to Wemyss Bay, then a Ferry to Rothesay. Then a local Bus or Taxi to Mount Stuart, the Victorian Toilets are located right on Rothesay Pier.
