Mount Stuart is located on the Isle of Bute, the most accessible island on the west coast of Scotland. The Isle of Bute is approximately 90 minutes from Glasgow by road or rail, including a 35 minute ferry crossing from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay. Alternatively another ferry runs from Colintraive to Rhubodach, taking less than 5 minutes.
