Helensburgh & Rhu

The town of Helensburgh is probably the least like the rest of Argyll. It is not far from Dumbarton and on the upper reaches of the Clyde Estuary and therefore nearer to the Industrialised centres of Scotland. That said, Helensburgh has quite a lot to offer the visitor. Probably the most noted attraction is Charles Rennie Mackintosh's "Hill House".

Helensburgh is of course quite a large town and has many shops and its seafront is popular with visitors who can watch many different types of vessel from yachts to Cruise liners, to fishing vessels to War ships, all of which ply the Clyde whilst carrying on their business.

 

Flowers

This town comes alive in the summer with frequent Pipe band performances along the seafront. An entertaining spectacle for visitors, many of whom are day trippers. With Loch Lomond only four miles away and the formation of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs park, many tourists now explore areas such as this as part of their day out.

John Logie Baird, the inventor of the television was born here in 1888, it was in 1926 that he first demonstrated his new invention to the public in London. There is a bust in commemoration of the man in Helensburgh but unfortunately little else.
