Mount Stuart, Britain’s most spectacular Victorian Gothic house, is the architectural fantasy of the 3rd Marquess of Bute and his architect Sir Robert Rowand Anderson.  The stunning, mysterious interiors of Mount Stuart reflect the romantic and scholarly Marquess’s passion for art, heraldry, astrology, mythology and religion.  The art collection includes works by Old Masters, depictions of British royalty and arguably the finest privately held collection of family portraits in Scotland.
