Cared for by the National Trust for Scotland. Anyone with a passion for design and architecture will love the Hill House, Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s domestic masterpiece on a grand scale. Discover the visually arresting mix of Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Scottish Baronial and Japonisme architecture and design, and enjoy a wander around the beautifully restored garden.
Restored by the National Trust for Scotland to look almost exactly as it did in 1904, the Hill House is an architectural gem, with many fascinating family stories waiting to be told. Working to a commission from Glasgow publisher Walter Blackie, celebrated architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife, artist Margaret Macdonald, designed almost everything you can see here, from the building itself to the furniture and textiles.
New for 2019
We’ve embarked on a 10-year conservation programme, which will allow continued public access to the house, but also offer views of the Hill House that have never been seen before, even by Mackintosh himself. Stage one will open to visitors in 2019, with a protective steel frame structure covered in chainmail mesh, featuring walkways around and over the top of the house. This structure, along with a new visitor centre, will deliver a unique heritage visitor experience.
Wander round the beautiful garden, restored using plants that would have been available in the early 20th century.
