Mount Stuart Trust

6th Marquess

The Mount Stuart Trust is a Charitable Trust founded in 1985, which works to fulfil the vision of the late John, Marquess of Bute. He believed that the public should be able to enjoy Mount Stuart and its gardens and surrounding grounds, and benefit from its collections and archives. John Bute generously endowed The Mount Stuart Trust with Bute Estate to provide the support which enables this remarkable house to be preserved and opened to visitors. The Trust owns and administers Mount Stuart and Bute Estate.

The aims of the Trust are to conserve, preserve and maintain the house, gardens and surrounding grounds for future generations, whilst facilitating public interest, understanding and appreciation of fine and decorative art, architecture and the rural environment, and to promote access, education and research.

We welcome you to Mount Stuart and hope you enjoy your visit.
