About House For An Art Lover, Edinburgh

The House for an Art Lover is a building constructed in 1989-96, based on a design of 1901 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh with his wife, Margaret MacDonald. The building is situated in Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, Scotland. The idea to actually construct the house from the Mackintoshs' designs came from Graham Roxburgh, a civil engineer in Glasgow who had done refurbishment work on the Mackintosh interiors in Craigie Hall.

  • I didn't get chance to get in as it was closed to public by the time I got there. Will be back this weekend though and going by how beautiful the gardens are managed I'm looking forward to seeing inside. Looking at some pictures other people have out on and they are stunning. A lovely house and lovely gardens with park and ski course on same grounds. Also a few mazes and other attractions. Great day out for family's of all ages. Something for everyone.

  • House For An Art Lover is absolutely stunning. I think the trust has done an amazing job of realising and bringing to life the designs of Charles and Margaret Mackintosh. I can't recommend a visit highly enough! Their tour, restaurant & gift shop and customer service are all 5 star too.

  • Could not believe the extortionate entry price! Totally over the top and made it too expensive to go in with my kids. The cafe is also very expensive but the food and drink looked good and waiting staff were excellent.

  • Amazing restaurant. Beautiful building. One-way married here and it was fantastic . Staff are very welcoming. The wee shop has looks of beautiful trinkets.

  • Fabulous place to visit. Three rooms (reception, dining room, music room) are furnished and decorated faithfully in keeping with Mackintosh's drawings. A fourth, the oval room, is done in Mackintosh style, as no drawings were submitted by him for that room. Lots of information provided on the history and contents of the house. The setting in Bellahouston Park is beautiful and easy to get to by public transport. The Art Lover's Cafe is really more of a restaurant and on the day we visited required a reservation. This meant that we had to wait until 2:30 pm for the first available lunch reservation. The food and service were excellent, if not cheap. If you just want a light snack, you may want to take it with you.
