Summary

Commissioned by Walter Blackie, a Glasgow book publisher, The Hill House is one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s finest domestic accomplishments. Almost everything at The Hill House, from the building itself, down to the textiles, furniture and fittings, was created either by Mackintosh himself, or by his wife, the artist, Margaret Macdonald.

Where is The Hill House located?

Located in Helensburgh, The Hill House is set off the A818, between the A82 and A814, 23 miles north-west of Glasgow.

What is the history of The Hill House to the present day?

A masterpiece of domestic architecture and design, The Hill House is a superb example of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s work. The geometric lines and elegant simplicity of Mackintosh’s designs have made his work an iconic symbol of the Arts and Crafts movement in Glasgow. Sadly, the house is now in a poor condition, with render failing and the interiors at grave risk.

What is there to see and do at The Hill House?

Whilst the house itself is currently closed, the gardens have been carefully restored, and the colours chosen in the garden reflect those often used by Mackintosh in his designs.

The Ten Best Scottish Fine Art Collections by Ian Sclater

"The Hill House is a work of art in itself. One of designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh´s finest creations, it has sweeping views of the Firth of Clyde. As well as the house, Mackintosh also designed most of the interiors, furniture and decorative fittings, even prescribing the colour of cut flowers so that they would match the decor."
