Any lover of C R Mackintosh will appreciate this recreation of his home, with typical furniture. It's stunning. Costs £5 entry but is worth it if you like his work.

Really interesting talk and tour. Well informed guide. Beautiful interior which gave me an insight into the lives of two of the most influential creative talents in Glasgow's history.

There is plenty of parking nearby as the attraction is in the university. You can park on the nearby streets where most students/faculty members park their cars - it will be empty on a Sunday. I am almost certain that tours... More
