Argyll & Bute | Town | ★★


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 a 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.
