  • What a beautiful place to visit. Surrounded by Bellahouston Park, this fabulous house shows Charles Rennie McIntosh at his best. The music room is particularly stunning. Entry fees are very reasonable and include access to the neighbouring heritage centre and gardens. There's also a lovely coffee shop /restaurant on the ground floor. For those with mobility issues, there is a lift to the 1st floor. I'll certainly be returning soon.
  • A very good lunch and great reproduction of the original Rennie Mackintosh drawings. Definitely worth the visit (our local hosts who were unaware of this said they will definitely be back!)
