Hill House, Helensburgh. image

The Hill House is considered to be Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s domestic masterpiece. Working to a commission from Glasgow book publisher Walter Blackie, up-and-coming architect Mackintosh and his wife, the artist Margaret Macdonald, created almost everything you see here, from the building itself to the furniture and textiles.

Think early 20th-century Scottish design and you’re bound to conjure up images of Mackintosh’s geometric lines and elegant purity. His creations were exquisitely simple and have become icons of the Glasgow Arts & Crafts movement.

Outside, the beautiful garden has also been restored in line with some of the early designs and reflects the palette of Mackintosh colours.
