Guided tour

Mackintosh at the Willow is unique in being a working Mackintosh space, retaining its 1903 original function as a tea room.

The tour covers most of the main spaces within the building, highlighting the work undertaken by the restoration team, the important interiors, and how the building relates to other Mackintosh works. Tours last around 45 minutes, take place daily at 10am and 11am, and booking is essential.

Please note these specialist tours are classed as events. Members of the National Trust for Scotland do not receive free admission to these specialist tours; adult and concession ticket types can be booked online.
