Mount Stuart, Argyll and Bute

  • Located in Rothesay, Argyll and Bute, The Highlands & Islands, Scotland
  • Located on the Isle of Bute, on the west coast of Scotland, Mount Stuart is accessible just 70 minutes from Glasgow Airport and 20 minutes from Argyll mainland
  • Mount Stuart is a 19th century country manor house with extensive gardens on the Isle of Bute
  • Truly a house of firsts, we believe Mount Stuart was the first home in the world to have a heated indoor swimming pool, and the first in Scotland to be purpose built with electric light, central heating, a telephone system and a Victorian passenger lift. Most of which are, quite remarkably, still in use today
  • Mount Stuart is testament to generations of Stuart passion and flamboyance. Explore this wondrous gothic structure and its labyrinth of gardens and you cannot fail to be impressed
  • The house itself is arguably the finest piece of domestic architecture to emerge from Britain's Gothic Revival in the 19th Century. This lavish palace boasts a majestic marble hall, an awe-inspiring white marble chapel, sumptuous accommodation and unspeakably rich reception rooms
  • By Mount Stuart Trust
