Glasgow Sights

House for an Art Lover

Updated 10/21/2013

Fodor's Review

Within Bellahouston Park is a "new" Mackintosh house, based on a competition entry Charles Rennie Mackintosh submitted to a German magazine in 1901. The house was never built in his lifetime, but took shape between 1989 and 1996. The building houses the Glasgow School of Art's postgraduate study center, and exhibits designs for the various rooms and decorative pieces by Mackintosh and his wife, Margaret. The main lounge is spectacular. There's also a café and shop filled

with art. Buses 9, 53, and 54 from Union Street will get you here. Call ahead, as opening times can vary.
