The gardens are also worth a visit, and are very well maintained. The views are great from the top floor of the house and you can see for miles right... More

This house is well worth a visit, Charles Rennie Mackintosh design is really different and very beautiful. On a nice day it is lovely to sit in the garden. The staff are very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant.

Hill House is well worth a visit. The building itself is beautiful as is all the artefacts and furnishings. Rennie Mackintosh at its best! I strongly recommend a visit as its a lovely day out.

We visited this NTS property on a recent trip to Scotland, the house is so beautiful with little touches of Rennie Mackintosh, the guides are very knowledgeable and friendly, the hose has such a lovely warm feel to it,, it has obviously even a happy family home, well worth a visit.

For any fan of Charles Rennie Mackintosh this is a must. Lovely location high on the hill, but it's the interior that is so striking.

Excellent example of Rennie Mackintosh. Staff were very friendly and don't interfere with your visit. Only slight negative was the café, which is quite basic and didn't have much of a selection. Loved the design shop on the first floor and the prices were quite reasonable.
