The Hill House

Family home where innovative architectural design comes to life

Coronavirus: Following the closure of our properties, all private and corporate hospitality events, including weddings, have unfortunately had to be cancelled until further notice. Our teams will be in touch with existing customers to discuss their options. If you’re having difficulty contacting us, please email

We’re also still busy responding to new enquiries for later in the year and beyond and would love to hear from you! Please contact us.

The Hill House is an architectural gem, where unique interiors meet conservation and architectural design innovation.

Glasgow publisher Walter Blackie commissioned celebrated architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh to design a functional family home. Along with his wife Margaret Macdonald, Mackintosh designed almost everything you can see at the Hill House, from the building itself to the furniture and textiles.

In 2018 we embarked on a 10-year conservation programme, and stage one (the ‘Box’) will open to visitors in 2019. The protective steel frame structure covered in a chainmail mesh is designed by award-winning architects Carmody Groake and will feature walkways around and over the top of the house.

Choose from a roof terrace inside the ‘Box’ with spectacular views over the house, the secluded lawns or unique interiors designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Whether you’re looking for an intimate event or a spectacular experience, we can cater for all your requirements.
