We were expecting just a pleasant stately home and were completely amazed at both the history and quality of decor of the place. The guided tour was fascinating with highlights being the stained glass windows and the chapel. The gardens were also lovely to stroll round. We didn't get to see the dining room which was a slight disappointment but... More

Recently visited with in a group of 17 (plus two dogs) while on holiday in Dunoon. The gardens and coastline provide great walks for the whole family. Would highly recommend a guided tour of the house as this was great and the tour guide was friendly, knowledgable and engaging. Would also recommend the tea room and coffee shop as both... More

Got a group discount for house and gardens, very reasonable, while I am not keen on guided tours we had chosen one which you went round on your own and had option of any advice from staff who were all very informative. Loved the wee gardens and had a lovely sandwich and scone in the tearoom, great day out

This is a unique building in Scotland. The exterior is baroque revival ........The interior is quite startling........A thoroughly designed interior which is all about the detail ( similar in concept ( but not design) to the Gaudi houses in Barcelona where EVERY detail has been thought through. Even the door hinges are exquisite. The white marble chapel is an amazing... More

Visited with large family group. Dogs welcome but not allowed in the house for obvious reasons. Family members who did tour the house said it was fantastic and guide was excellent. Big gardens and walks, highly recommend doing the coastal walk. Was muddy so wear suitable footwear. Lovely cafe at house and by entrance with nice play area for the... More

Even on a wet day, the gardens are magnificent and offer a great walk. The house itself is impressive, with great pieces of furniture, a very nice 18th century organ, beautiful stained glass and breathtaking views over the bay.

This is an amazing house with an interesting history. The actual house itself has something for everyone and is certainly not your usual stately home. We were give a specific time to be at the house for the guided tour but turned up to a locked door, which was answered by a grumpy guide saying we were to early and... More

This is a delightful house built in the 1870s. The highlight of our visit to the Isle of Bute. The guides on the premises were excellent. Perhaps a little expensive for adult tickets but we enjoyed it.

This is such an understated destination with its low key signage and visitor centre which on first arrival looks rather drab. Spring had not quite sprung here in mid April right before Easter so the grounds looked sad just waiting to burst into colour. A few rhododendrons and magnolia bushes spread some colour and the sun through rain showers was... More
