Artist, architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh was born in Glasgow in 1868 and his legacy remains strikingly writ across the city's skyline, museums and galleries. Blending Scottish baronial influences with Art Nouveau motifs, the School of Art is his masterpiece, while the innovative light capture of the Scotland Street School Museum near Shields Road Underground station was to be his last major Glaswegian commission. The stunning House for an Art Lover in Bellahouston Park, inspired by a 1901 series of the artist's drawings, opened in 1996. A CRM Trail Ticket includes entry to the attractions above, the Mackintosh House at the Hunterian Art Gallery, the Lighthouse, the Hill House in Helensburgh (see entries elsewhere in the guide) and the Mackintosh Church, headquarters of the CRM Society, plus unlimited travel on public transport.
