House for an Art Lover was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, but he never lived to see it built; construction didn't start until 1989, 60 years after his death. It's now an art museum and charitable company promoting art, design and architecture, with regular exhibitions from Scottish artists and an ongoing adult education programme. The café has an outdoor terrace and the house is a popular venue for corporate events and weddings.

hi everyone

1. Johnny Baja30 May 2008, 6:15pm5 stars House for an Art Lover Report

Highly recommended as a wedding/function venue (or for a meal at the cafe). We planned our wedding from overseas, and they were professional, communicative, and made us comfortable throughout the process. The venue is stunning and was well suited for our group of 67 (though the dance floor was too small to accommodate some ceilidh dances for the whole group). The food was exceptional and well-presented; plenty of staff was on hand, and James did a great job of keeping the day on track. The nearby walled garden is great for photos (though it’s worth determining whether the flowers will be between seasons during your event, as there’s a small fee that must be paid for professional photography).
