Helensburgh

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.

    "Stunning cottages in the heart of Loch Lomond National Park..."

    Situated in the heart of Loch Lomond National Park, these stunning holiday properties have been lovingly restored and furnished to provide wonderful retreats. Auchendennan Farm Cottage (SLLX) is a single-storey holiday cottage; within the house there is a large family sauna which can be used as an ideal way to unwind. Outside on the sun decking, there is a sunken hot tub which is large enough for all the family and powerful enough to give tired muscles a proper massage. Rose Cottage (SRRG) is a single-storey conversion adjoining the owner’s farmhouse. Combining modern and traditional furnishings, the property boasts a superb hot tub and external sun decked area for relaxing and unwinding. Burnbeag (SVVE) is a stunning, detached cottage to the rear of the steadings and has a stream running through its private enclosed garden, which has a decked area and hot tub. Courtyard Studio (SVVD) is a single-storey barn conversion set in the courtyard, behind the main house. Chestnut Cottage (SXXO), Willow Cottage (SXXP), Primrose Cottage (SXXQ) and Ivy Cottage (SXXR) are all pretty single-storey, semi-detached holiday cottages, with open-plan living areas and a cosy, wood-burning stove.
    In summer, Loch Lomond’s ancient oak woods ring with birdsong. Look out for redstarts, pied flycatchers and wood warblers. Ospreys are summer visitors to the loch and nearby Lake of Menteith. In the high country of Breadalbane, golden eagles may be seen soaring over mountain slopes richly carpeted in alpine plants. Watch out for porpoises and seals and glimpse Loch Lomond’s herd of fallow deer as they bound through the trees. Loch Lomond and Loch Earn are some of Scotland’s prime venues for sailing and water-skiing, while the rivers Balvaig and Teith are popular with canoeists. The Teith is also a great salmon river and one of many places popular with anglers. For golfing enthusiasts, the famous courses of Loch Lomond are just a short distance from the property, with an abundance of courses for all standards within easy reach.
    Walking is a popular pursuit, from gentle low-level strolls to strenuous mountain climbs. Ben Lomond, Ben Lui, Ben Ime and Ben Vorlich are among the 21 Munros (mountains over 3000 feet). The West Highland Way stretches from the edge of Glasgow to Fort William, hugging the banks of Loch Lomond and passing through the spectacular mountain scenery of Strathfillan. There are great opportunities for cycling on and off road on National Cycle Network Route 7, which passes through the National Park from Balloch to Killin. Cameron House, the 5 star golf/spa resort is just minutes from the property where one can enjoy fine dining, day spa packages and championship golf. Lomond Shores, again a short distance from the property, offers designer shopping, loch cruises and an aquarium. The cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily accessible by car boasting award winning restaurants, theatres, galleries and concert venues, designer shopping as well as many tourist attractions including the breath-taking Edinburgh Castle. Shops 2 miles, pub ¼ mile.
