The Mackintosh House is a replica of a house in which Charles Rennie Mackintosh lived for 8 years. What makes it special is that the contents were brought from the original. The entry fee of £6 was good value and only 12 visitors are allowed...More

Loved the forward thinking of Charles Rennie MacKintosh. Can see where our grandparents furniture and style originated. I love the jewellery too.

Although the guided tour feels rather rushed in the 30 mins allocated it does allow you to experience the house with a well informed guide and then if you wish for more time there you can simply revisit after 1.30 (keep your receipt from the...More
