Built in 1902 for Glasgow publisher Walter Blackie, this is perhaps architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh's finest creation – its timeless elegance still feels chic today. Mackintosh was keen not to cast his pearls before swine: he once chided Mrs Blackie for putting the wrong-coloured flowers in a vase in the hall. You can stay here – check the NTS website. The Hill House is near Upper Helensburgh station, but not all trains stop there.
