Mount Stuart is located on the Isle of Bute, the most accessible island off the west coast of Scotland.
The Isle of Bute is approximately 50 minutes away from Glasgow by road or rail, followed by 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.
