Mount Stuart House

Mount Stuart House and Gardens are located on the beautiful island of Bute. Bute is only 33 miles from Glasgow. It is the most accessible of the westerly isles from the Scottish Central Belt. It’s a peaceful island haven, just a stone’s throw away from the mainland.

The spirit of nineteenth-century invention is embodied in Mount Stuart – a feat of Victorian engineering, this neo-gothic mansion was one of the most technologically advanced houses of its age. Ironic, when you consider the medieval inspiration of the Gothic Revival. Set in 300 acres of grounds which include designed gardens, woodland and coast, Mount Stuart is a once in a lifetime experience unlike no other.

"An extraordinary Gothic palace in one of Scotland's scenic islands is the location for an overnight stay unlike any other. A life enhancing and emotional experience to some, a source of inspiration and knowledge to others, an unique experience of overwhelming appreciation of beauty to all."

Your Special Day

Mount Stuart Wedding entrance with piper


Mount Stuart is a spectacular architectural masterpiece that, through ingenious design and innovation, lends itself to being the perfect Scottish wedding venue. From the moment that the house appears through the trees, on your journey down Carriage Drive, you are astonished by the structure itself. The attention to detail on this unique building is to the highest standard. However your initial viewing of the exterior of the building cannot prepare you for what lies beyond the main entrance situated under the porte-cochère.

Love at First Sight

When you walk up the entrance staircase you are welcomed home by a roaring fire, your eyes are quickly diverted to a forest of Carrera marble pillars that surround the Marble Hall. This is just a window into what is waiting for you and your guests for latter in the day. In the Ante Hall you have the space to welcome your guests with a drink and allow them the time to catch up with distant friends and relatives before they are called to the Marble Chapel for your ceremony.

Wedding Reception & Couple

Your Drinks Reception

Following your ceremony, greet your guests for the first time as a married couple in the relaxed atmosphere of the Drawing Room or in the sunshine on the Front Lawn.
