Hotels in Helensburgh

Helensburgh was founded in the late 18th century by Sir James Colquhoun, who named it after his wife. Book a Helensburgh hotel with us and discover this attractive Victorian resort on the River Clyde.

Heritage Helensburgh

With its pretty parks and gardens, tree-lined streets and long promenade, Helensburgh cuts a dash on Scotland's west coast. And Hill House, in the north of the town, is the jewel in Helensburgh's crown. Considered to be Charles Rennie Mackintosh's finest domestic architectural accomplishment, the house stands high atop a hill with terrific views of the River Clyde and beyond. Built in 1902, Hill House, along with its gardens, has been restored to its former glory and reflects the look of that era.

In the centre of the town, and providing the perfect spot for a picnic, is the 12-acre Hermitage Park. Made up of 12 acres of formal gardens featuring attractive flower displays, the park has immaculate bowling and putting greens. You'll see a war memorial and even an old mill, as well as a bust of John Logie Baird, inventor of the television, and one-time resident of Helensburgh.

Close to the confluence of the Clyde and Gare Loch are the ten-acre Glenarn Gardens which were originated in the mid-19th century and fully established by the 1930s. The gardens are renowned for their collection of rare rhododendrons which, along with some of the trees, are approaching two hundred years' old. You'll see more flora including digitalis, lilies and primulas, and the views from the upper quarry path are sublime.

Island jaunts

The islands of Rothesay, Arran, Bute and Cumbrae are all within easy reach by boat. And during the summer a paddle steamer, Waverley, cruises the dramatic lochs to these islands and other destinations.

Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are just six miles north-east of Helensburgh. Here, amid a landscape of imposing castles, historic homes, glens and mountains, you'll find the country's largest freshwater loch, not to mention an array of fascinating wildlife. The Loch itself is ideal for water sports such as kayaking, canoeing, wakeboarding, water skating, waterskiing and jet skiing, as well as speed boating.

Eating and drinking

Annaya's is an Indian restaurant that has quickly built up a terrific reputation for its hospitality and tasty food. Apparently the milkshakes are very good, and they have a takeaway service too.

Bringing Iberian cuisine to the west of Scotland, La Barca, a tapas and wine bar, has a flavoursome menu and attentive, friendly staff. A classic Scottish fish supper awaits you at the Wee Kelpie which is popular with the locals, and can be found on the seafront.


Helensburgh has a couple of small supermarkets, as well as a baker's, a deli-cum-butcher-cum-vintner and a few other stores. Less than four miles down the coast is Ardardan Estate Walled Garden and Nursery which includes a farm shop. Here you can buy seasonal produce sourced from within Scotland as well as quality cheese, olives and the like.
