The Hill House, Helensburgh
Early 20th century

The Hill House is the finest example of domestic architecture by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It stands as a major landmark within the history of architecture. The Glasgow publisher, Walter Blackie, commissioned Mackintosh to design the house in 1902. Mackintosh also designed the furniture for the main rooms, and the fittings and decorative schemes, while Margaret Macdonald contributed fabric designs and a unique gesso panel. The Blackie family moved into the house in 1904. The house has been conserved in its original form.
