Description

The Hill House is high up a hill in Helensburgh, overlooking the Firth of Clyde. Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed nearly everything inside the house, from the decorative schemes and the furniture to the fittings and contents and much has been restored so it looks almost exactly as it did in 1904 when its first residents, Glasgow publisher Walter Blackie and his family, moved in. There is a mix of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Scottish Baronial and Japonisme architecture and design.

No photography is allowed inside so the video is of the formal gardens which have been restored using plants that would have been available at that time.
