The Armin Grewe Homepage
After visiting the various Charles Rennie Mackintosh buildings in Glasgow I moved on to Helensburgh, approx 20 miles northwest of Glasgow on the Firth of Clyde. Helensburgh is the home to Hill House, which CRM designed and built for the publisher Walter Blackie 1902-1904. This page should only give an impression of the building, if you are interested in more details you might want to visit the Charles Rennie Mackintosh section of my website.

It's a National Trust property. A small tearoom can be found in the old kitchen. Picture of Hill House
Hill House from the garden. You have an excellent view over the Firth of Clyde from here (there must be a reason for the name "Hill House"...)

Picture of a view into Hill House through a windowUnfortunately you can't take any pictures inside of the house, I hope this picture gives you at least an impression of what you'll find inside. The rooms, the furniture, the use of colour and light, it's stunning.
