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.

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 Glasgow Art Club is in Bath Street maybe 5 minutes walk from Mackintosh at the Willow  check

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.
