Full Site Closure Covid-19 Update

In line with Scottish Government restrictions, Mount Stuart remains closed to all visitors, members and Isle of Bute residents. As the full attraction is currently closed and no visitor facilities are available, we ask that you do not travel to the site for daily exercise or to walk dogs.

At this stage there is no confirmed date for visitor opening, this will be guided by Scottish Government advice and any updates will be shared through our website and social accounts. We are hopeful of a phased return from April 26th and will post full details of house and garden opening dates when we can.

In the meantime keep up-to-date with news and developments by signing up to our newsletter or by checking the news and projects pages of the website. We look forward to welcoming you back to Mount Stuart when it is safe to do so.

In line with government guidance, many of our staff are continuing to work from home. Given these extraordinary circumstances we may not be able to respond as quickly as we would like so please be patient; we will get back to you.
