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). Tickets will be available to purchase online from the end of April.

To enhance visitor and staff safety a number of new visiting arrangements will be in place initially, these include a requirement for pre-booking and the operation of our café on a takeaway only basis. Find out more here.

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.

For any urgent enquiries please email: and our team will respond as soon as possible.
