To see the School of Art you should book on to one of their tours in advance (takes 1 hour).  The School is just 5 mins walk away from the Willow Tea rooms. The Lighthouse is about 15 mins walk (downhill) from that area.

The House for an Art Lover is perhaps a 15 minute walk from Ibrox Underground (a 30 min visit and you should always call in advance to check their opening times which can vary)  There is also an excellent restaurant there.  Scotland Street School is easily accessible from Shields Road Underground station and   The Willow Tea Rooms have a café and shop within the School (School closed on Mondays).

The Mackintosh House is 10 mins walk from Hillhead Underground and is contained within the Hunterian Art Gallery which is also worth seeing.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum is about 8 mins walk from the # Mackintosh House or you can walk from the Underground station at Kelvinhall (8 mins).  The Mackintosh Collection is on the ground floor.

The Hill House is 45 min by **train from Queen Street and then a cab from the station (just a few minutes away by this method or a 15 min walk up a steep hill).  There is also a bus service-First Bus- from the stop outside the Radisson Hotel at 301 Argyle Street every 30 mins. which takes about 1hr 40 mins to get to Helensburgh.
