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.

Mount Stuart is 5 miles south of the island's principal town: Rothesay, and is well signposted from the ferry terminal. If you are travelling using a sat nav system, please use the postcode PA20 9LR. Get directions on Google Maps.
