Covid-19 Update

In line with the Scottish Government’s update on 16th March, we are pleased to confirm that we plan to reopen the Gardens and Courtyard Café on Saturday 1st May (subject to restrictions lifting). To enhance visitor and staff safety a number of new visiting arrangements will be in place, find out more here.

At present the House, Gardens and grounds remain closed to all visitors, members and Isle of Bute residents. As no visitor facilities are available and the team are undertaking vital groundworks, we ask that you do not travel to the site for daily exercise or to walk dogs.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Mount Stuart in May and we will keep you updated through our website and social media platforms as our plans develop. 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.

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.
