Helensburgh

[Helensburgh]
Bordering the north bank of the Firth of Clyde, Helensburgh is an attractive seaside resort with a small but busy centre and beautiful cherry blossom-lined suburban streets in springtime. The town grew up as a wealthy commuter base for dirty Glasgow in Victorian times, and still has good transport links to Scotland's largest city - though it's recently lost the ferry service to Gourock across the Clyde, leaving behind an conspicuously empty pier. Away from the coast at the top of town, Hill House is something of a pilgrimage site for fans of Glasgow designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
