Take a bath of Mackintoshism. Built a few years ago to his designs, the house is wonderful, complete and colourful, full of CRM and his wife's designs and touches. Don't miss the fabulous music room.

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!
