The Hill House was a fantastic place to visit for me, a huge Charles Rennie Mackintosh fan. The house is beautiful, full of typical Mackintosh features and the gardens are well laid out and colourful. The staff and volunteers were helpful and the Tea Room had a nice selection of light bites and cakes on offer.

I stayed this month for a week at the National Trust for Scotland flat in Hill House, the Mackintosh masterpiece of domestic architecture. Staying there was a great way to immerse yourself in the world of the early 20th century. We visited the house downstairs a number of times, at different times of the day and under different weather conditions... More

Many years since we last visited this and wanted to take my daughter. I forget how inspiring it is and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Getting a chance to see the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh in context was one reason my husband and I traveled to Scotland, so being in this house was quite a moving experience! I very much liked the fact that we were free to wander on our own; we spent about three hours in the house and grounds. I do... More

The house is a wonderful accolade to Rennie MacIntosh. The style of some of the rooms would not look out of place in a modern home today. The staff were very knowledgeable about the history of the house and Rennie MacIntosh. Well worth a visit if you are ever in Helensburgh.
