Accidentally drove into this place and around the grounds The house was closed for winter but the grounds were lovely for a walk and our toddler loves exploring some of the gardens. The 'wee garden' in particular was excellent and the house is beautiful, from the outside

A fabulous and opulent Gothic Revival country house in the grand style with a superb white marble chapel and fantastic interiors. Added to this the staff are proud of the beautiful home they care for and have endless enthusiasm when it comes to helping visitors make the most out of their visit. 300 acre garden leading down towards the Firth...

Even if you think you've seen enough stately homes, this one is well worth a prolonged visit. The grounds are expansive & the tea room/shop very good.

This house is well worth a visit, the interior is amazing with marble columns and stained glass windows depicting the signs of zodiacs around the roof. The steps leading to the upstairs are also all marble where the bedrooms and bathrooms are. The are also very impressive.

Recommended by friends and was not disappointed in this remarkable outstanding prestegious historic building formerly residence of the Royal Stewarts. The imported marble throughout, the decadence and attention to detail, well worth visting.

Spectacular gothic building within magnificent grounds. Architecture is simply outstanding, particularly the chapel. The stained glass windows, with the zodiac signs are breathtaking. The grand house is a 10/15 minute meander from the car park however there is a minibus available at no extra cost. Give yourself at least half a day to explore this wonderful find. Don't forget your... More

Magnificent grounds and buildings. Really worth the visit. We went in October, autumn colours were simply breathtaking. Make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to see all of the grounds - we almost missed the sculptures!

From glinting horoscope ceilings, a breathtaking marble chapel, a swimming pool, a secret passage, and an original First Folio of Shakespeare's plays (!), Mount Stuart has something for everyone. It is a stunning, sumptuous building set in beautiful grounds. We took the architectural tour with a very well-informed, enthusiastic guide who brought the stories of the Bute family and the...
