The Hill House
High on a hill in Helensburgh, overlooking the River Clyde, sits what is universally regarded as Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s finest domestic creation!

The Hill House is a visually arresting mix of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Scottish Baronial and Japonisme architecture and design.
Mackintosh designed nearly everything inside the Hill House too, from the decorative schemes and the furniture to the fittings and contents.
His wife, Margaret Macdonald, designed and made many of the textiles as well as a beautiful fireplace panel. Much of the house has been restored so it looks almost exactly as it did in 1904 when its first residents, Glasgow publisher Walter Blackie and his family, moved in.
The beautiful, formal gardens have also been restored in line with the early designs, using plants that would have been available at the time.
