20 West Dhuhill Drive, Helensburgh, Argyll, G84 9AW

    A large detached Grade “B” listed villa designed in 1911 by John Burnett yet with the home comforts of the 21st century including free wi fi. Commanding views over the Clyde Estuary and to the peaks of the Isle of Arran.

    In addition to being a member of Scotland's Best B&Bs with a Scottish Tourist Board grading of 5 Stars, Lethamhill has been awarded 5 Stars by the AA and is one of the top B&Bs in the country.

    Lethamhill is a veritable Aladdin's Cave of fascinating collectables and memorabilia from old typewriters to slot machines collected over the years.

    We are the proud owners of one of the old red telephone boxes which now stands in our garden!

    Lethamhill offers 3 spacious and thoughtfully decorated bedrooms and two have the full river views and designer bathrooms. The third has the benefit of a Jacuzzi bath.  All are spacious and have the little extras like robes and fridges.

    Lethamhill is situated in Helensburgh - birthplace of John Logie Baird, the inventor of television. We are close to Hill House, designed of Charles Rennie Mackintosh which is now owned by the National Trust and is open to the public. 

    Our breakfasts cooked on the Aga and taken in the dining room or conservatory will set you up for your day ahead.

    What to See and Do

    From Helensburgh Pier take a boat trip on the Waverley - the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world.  Wander the recently redone piazza-style streets of Helensburgh with the many privately owned shops, restaurants and coffee shops.

    Visit scenic Loch Lomond which is just a few minutes drive from us.  Take a flight in a Seaplane or cruise the Loch using the various day cruising boats from Balloch or Tarbet.

    Take a day trip to the Isle of Bute for the Victorian gothic splendour of Mount Stuart House or the ruins of old Rothesay Castle.

    Have a relaxing day on the West Highland Railway Line watching the best of Scotland's scenery from the comfort of the train via Helensburgh Upper Station leaving your car at Lethamhill. One of the world's most famous train journeys, the trip can take you from Glasgow to Fort William and then along the Road the Isles to Mallaig now even more famous thanks to Harry Potter, or to Oban on the shorter route. Use the train for day trips to Edinburgh to save on negotiating the parking and traffic of our busy capital.

    For sporting visitors, there are lots of opportunities for golf, fishing and water sports with Rhu Marina in the River Clyde close by and the boating facilities on Loch Lomond a few miles away.
