On our last visit, our time was largely spent in the House...a must see! This visit our focus was on the beautiful grounds! We walked from the Visitor Center through Kitchen Garden, Pinetum and made our way to the House. The Rock Gardens are stunning. We will definitely be back!

We have visited many stately homes and castles over the years but Mount Stuart was intriguingly different. It is not just the architecture, as brilliant as it is, but the obsession with the subject on which the design was based which grabbed you from the moment you walked in. Our tour guide added to the atmosphere with her knowledge of the building and the history. Well worth a special journey to se.

The visit to mount Stuart was amazing! The gardens and house are out this world. Regular bus service which is handy and as a keen walker i walked to mount Stuart. The gardens are amazing and the £13 entry fee are fair considering what you get to see.

Well what can I say what a building beautiful surroundings a rite hidden gem guides where all full of knowledge even when the hubby.was asking obscure questions ie... where is the bat cave ..... how many toilet rolls do you go through ......why is this here ...... how long does it take to clean one of the guides were fab as kept coming and asking him if he had any other strange questions as she was laughing so much and was never asked things like that you have the beautiful gardens you can walk round hubby was a bit too excited about the woods as had medieval village kinda thing loved it and can't wait to do the private tour be back soon

Along with 2 companions we set off from Glasgow to Wemyss Bay to catch an early ferry to Rothesay and catch a local 490 bus to Mount Stuart . The building is set in
300 acres of glorious woodlands and gardens with various species of plants and trees as well as a large botanical greenhouse with exotic plants from around the world . The weather forecast was not promising which became evident and curtailed our journey of the woods and gardens therefore we entered the neo gothic building Mount Stuart . There are various rooms open to the public which alternate depending when you visit . The main entrance is at the rear of the building for visitors . Each room has its own individuality stamped on it with 16th, 17th 18th and 19th century paintings adorning all the walls .A guided tour is on hand , however occasionally they operate a free flow system with very helpful informative and friendly guides in each room to answer any. questions yo may have . We were taken aback with quantity and historic quality of the sculptures , the paintings , the ornate furniture to be seen .This is a must see that should be on everyone who is historically minded's bucket list We thoroughly recommend a visit and a great thanks to all the staff in making this a very memorable visit
