This is a fantastic restaurant- superb food, great service and one of the most impressive buildings in the city of Glasgow. There is one key drawback- the atmosphere/noise in the restaurant is almost unbearable. I think this is something that is beyond the control of the establishment and (dare i say it) might be an architectural flaw. In saying this,... More

Lovely restaurant. Food always excellent and good value. Service is good also, and all within this beautiful corner of a city park. They have a nice wee shop too. Plenty parking.

The House for an art lover is a beautiful Rennie McIntosh building at the East end of Bellahouston Park and situated next to the beautiful walled gardens and dry ski slope. The food is excellent but a bit fancy and pricey, so not the place if you are just looking for a quick bite of fast food for lunch.

If you're a Rennie McIntosh fan then this house is for you. It's a typical example of his work and you can even get married in it. I come here from time to time, just to wander around and then visit the cafe. The music room is my favourite.

A beautiful Arts and Crafts house designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for a competition in 1901, but not built until over 90 years later! If you love architecture or CRM then this is a must visit. Set about 4 miles SW of Glasgow in a gorgeous park, you'll love it.

Smaller than the house in Hellensburgh but worth the visit, nice souvenir shop and lovely food in the downstairs cafe. Lovely gardens. Not to be missed by Mackintosh fans.
