This was built in the 1990s and is based on an unsuccessful plan Rennie Mackintosh put forward for a competition in Germany. It's set in attractive parkland and is really very impressive, the simple style contrasting with the exotic exuberance of other buildings in Glasgow...More

Bringing to life Macintosh's works. Although modern it typifies what the man was all about. Set in nice gardens within a large park. Great on a summer day when you you want t escape the sun for a while

Check their website as it does weddings also and the exhibition changes its opening times upto a week at a time. The cafe has separate opening times and is open to the public more frequent.

Sorry I can answer your question. I was leading a tour, which means the bus driver got us there, with the help of a local who served as a private guide. I bet it's really beautiful there now that summer has arrived. Enjoy!
