One of Britain’s most stunning examples of Victorian Gothic architecture. This flamboyant house is also surrounded by 300 acres of beautifully kept gardens.
The Lush Gardens of Mount Stuart date back to early 1700 when the 2nd Earl of Bute began the landscaping of the woodland. Later, in the 19th century, the 5 acre Wee Garden was created and - in 1896 - the famous landscape gardener Thomas Mawson designed a stunning replica of the Via Dolorosa and a finely detailed Rock Garden. Later years have brought further cultivation, including the replanting of the Rock Garden and the updating of the Victorian Kitchen Garden.
