#1 of 18 in Things to do in Rothesay
Experience the world of 18th-century luxury at Mount Stuart. Located on the Scottish Isle of Bute, the mansion features Neo-Gothic architecture and many first-class amenities of its time, including the world’s first heated indoor swimming pool. Walk through the great marble hall to admire 25 m (80 ft) high ceilings, or stroll through the expansive gardens that overlook the sea. Join a guided tour to hear the history of the property and to tour the many ornate rooms of the mansion. Take a walk-on ferry to the Isle to avoid paying to park your car. Mount Stuart is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Rothesay Edition.
