Hill House (NTS)

Helensburgh

The finest of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s domestic creations, The Hill House sits high above the Clyde commanding fine views over the river estuary. Walter Blackie, director of the well-known Glasgow publishers, commissioned not only the house and garden but much of the furniture and all the interior fittings and decorative schemes. Mackintosh's wife, Margaret MacDonald, contributed fabric designs and unique gesso overmantel. The overall effect is daring, but restrained in its elegance: the result, timeless rooms, as modern today as they must have been in 1904 when the Blackie family moved in.Exhibitions, tearoom, design shop.
