A great job has been done of recreating the house that Macintosh and his wife lived in nearby. Guided tours which mean you sometimes have to wait but no charge.

The restaurant in the House for an Art Lover is situated on the lower ground floor which makes for easy access. Although the House was built in homage to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the restaurant isn't too Mockintosh. It is bright and airy with great views of the grounds from most tables. Christmas lunches were being served when I visited and... More

If walking, it's not the best walk from the subway station that by the Rangers Football Ground. Unfortunately we hadn't rung beforehand so discovered it had been closed at midday on Saturday.

The building is beautiful and unique and if you like Charles Rennie Macintosh this is for you. The restaurant food is beautiful and presented extremely well. This is situated in the grounds of Bellahouston Park so on a lovely day you can walk off your lunch. Stunning surroundings for a wedding venue.

always pop in here when in the area for a quick coffee and cake. Nice location and interesting place to visit. You probably drive past it but look out for sign and try it
