As an Architect and a admirer of Charles Rennie Mackintosh this house is a must visit - they have attempted to furnish it as it was when lived in by the notable publisher owner

I really love the designs and arts of the early C20 and this was stunning and so different to anything I had seen before. It is presented in such a way that it was very easy to imagine what it would have been like to live there. The information provided and the room guides were clear and useful. A good... More

This is a beautiful house to visit. So much detail went into the planning of it. The shades of stained glass are stunning, especially when the sun is shining. Do watch out for the afternoon only opening hours. It is possible to walk there from Helensburgh but is uphill all the way. Well worth a visit!

The most harmonious and desirable house I have visited. The designs of furniture, fireplaces and particularly the lights were exceptional

This house was certainly different than your average Estate Home tour. It was designed in a modern fashion that I liken to the unique characters of Frank Lloyd Wright Homes. The admission price was a bit high in comparison to other estate homes that we have toured. No photos were permitted. There is a nice little cafe where one can... More

Tucked off the main drag in Helensburgh but is so well worth a visit. Once of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's domestic houses, it is magical, wonderful atmosphere and the gardens are lovely too.

Loved the house, lots of history with little gifts shops to buy a souvenir. Bit expensive to get in but we joined the National Trust for Scotland when we got to Hill House and that meant we could benefit all year round with lots of different properties, for a monthly fee. Would definitely recommend a visit here.

The price we paid for what you get is disappointing to say the least. Where as we understand that the upkeep of these properties is costly and whereas i dont mind paying for that, but over £10 to see pretty much 4 rooms is an outrage! we looked around the whole place in about 10mins. This is poorly managed, and... More

Must be our fourth visit and every time we see something new. The first time is a jaw-dropping experience. Enter through the front door into the dark lobby. To the right is the library, panelled in dark wood. Go up the small flight of stairs to the main hallway and enter the living room (to the right). It is a... More
