During the nineteenth century the 3rd Marquess of Bute and his architect Sir Robert Rowand Anderson built a new Gothic palace from the ruins of the original Mount Stuart. The house was never finished, an ambitious restoration programme was begun by the late 6th Marquess in the 1980s, and work continues to this day. Mount Stuart’s gardens, date back to roughly 1717 with further developments through to present day.
