By Wyndham Vacation Rentals


Positioned on the north side of the Firth of Clyde is the elegant Victorian seaside town of Helensburgh; just four miles from Loch Lomond and ideally placed for exploring by car, rail, boat or on foot.

The town itself has lovely tree lined streets and fine Victorian architecture to admire. One highlight in particular is Hill House, considered to be the finest domestic work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It was built in 1903 for the publisher Walter Blackie and is open to the public. Inside there is original Mackintosh furniture, and the lovely formal gardens have been restored to their original design.

A mile west of the town is Glenarn, where you will find a special woodland garden overlooking the Gareloch. Two miles east of Helensburgh is Geilston Garden, open daily from April to October. As well as a walled garden, heather garden and woodland glen, it is home to a spectacular Sequoiadendron giganteum. Walking along the river to Kidston Park you will pass memorials to the pioneer of television, John Logie Baird, and Henry Bell, who operated ‘The Comet’, the first commercial sea-going steamboat in the world.

Tennis, golf, putting and bowling facilities are all available for visitors and there is an indoor swimming pool on the seafront. Here you will also find cafes, shops and pubs, and there are many more in the town supplying everything you need.

During summer there are regular sailings of the paddle steamer Waverley, from Helensburgh pier. Trips take you to the Kyles of Bute along the Clyde Estuary. Further summer attractions in the town are the highland dancing and pipe band performances that are held on the seafront.

The town has excellent rail links with Oban, Fort William and Glasgow. For those travelling by road, Helensburgh offers an ideal base for touring much of western Scotland including beautiful Loch Lomond.
