Hill House, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1902 for W Blackie the publisher, sits on a hillside in Helensburgh with extensive views over the Clyde estuary.

Despite being over 100 years old, it still has a very modern appearance. Blackie was obviously impressed with Mackintosh's work to have entrusted such an important project to him but he went further and commissioned Mackintosh to design the gardens, furniture and interior of the house.

Now Hill House is a property of National Trust for Scotland.
