Transclyde Music have a choice of several quality music venues ranging from 30 seated to 200
Marble Hall Mount Stuart
An eclectic combination of rare Italian and Sicilian marbles and alabaster stretch from floor to ceiling; unorthodox stained glass windows glow as the sun circles around the house to bathe the hall in blue, green, red and purple light; cut crystal stars embedded in the glass pepper tiny rainbows over the marble – together characterising but a fraction of the divinely surreal Marble Hall.
Themes of astronomy and astrology grace the stunning vaulted ceiling, which soars to a dramatic height of 80 feet. Should you look up you will find glass stars of the northern hemisphere, each one exactly in its course, and encased in silver. Scattered around the ceiling in gold are characters from Greek mythology, and in white the representations of the celestial bodies, imposed over their constellations.
A space of considerable mystery even during its construction, as future Prime Minister Lord Roseberry would highlight: ‘Rumours point to it as something beyond the Arabian nights’.
Exceptional acoustic and need to be heard to be believed in this stunning 200 seated hall
Only one mile from Rothesay and with one of the best views overlooking the Kyles of Bute and Loch Striven, Craigmore Bowling Club is an excellent up close music venue with around 80 capacity and a well stocked bar.
St Pauls Hall
With a seated capacity of around 50 St Pauls hall is perfect for those intimate singer songwriter gigs. With a BYOB what could be better.
