Glasgow, Scotland for Christmas

We were very lucky, with most places closed we could really only drive around and see the scenery and we had great weather!

The Hunterian Art Gallery was open and we saw the works of ¬†Charles Rennie Mackintosh (architect, designer, and artist)and his wife Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh (artist, designer). Their “Glasgow Style” may have influenced Frank Lloyd Wright and Gustav Klimt.

Then went to Helensburgh to see the Hill House that was one of Charles ‘s most famous homes he designed.
