Helensburgh

Helendsburgh.jpgHelensburgh, situated on the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is just 10 minutes from the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. The town is a bustling place, with its many cafes, restaurants and shops. Key visitor attractions include The Hill House - a classic example of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's finest work and Hermitage Park. Glenarn Gardens at Rhu is just 1 mile west of the town and well worth a visit.

Those with Naval interests will watch in awe at the many sailing boasts, cruise liners and of course, the Royal Navy vessels operating around the Clyde. Take in fantastic views across to the Rosneath peninsula and beyond to Gourock from the attractive promenade. Let us not forget of course a tribute to two very famous people that hail from Helensburgh; Henry Bell, operator of the Comet - the world's first sea-faring steamboat and John Logie Baird, pioneer of the television. Whatever your reason for visiting Helensburgh, it is sure to be an enjoyable experience.
