Helensburgh is a lovely seaside town with plenty of restaurants and shops. There are buildings of architectural interest including Charles Rennie MacKintosh’s Hill House (National Trust). There is also easy access to sea or loch fishing, sailing, hill walking, mountain-biking and golfing.
The world’s last sea going paddle steamer ‘The Waverley’ calls in twice a week during the summer for sea-loch excursions.
This location is an ideal centre for exploring West and Central Scotland. Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park (‘Braveheart’ Country), Stirling, and Inveraray (where you can visit the castle and Victorian jail). All are within easy reach by car.
Helensburgh has two train stations. Central Station connects directly to Glasgow and Edinburgh every thirty minutes, while Helensburgh Upper gives access to the panoramic scenery of the West Highland Line with daily return journeys to Oban and Fort William.
Helensburgh also hosts the Highland games and the Pipe Championships in June. It also has its own cinema with the latest film releases. There is a wide range of local restaurants and cafes in Helensburgh and the surrounding area and our guest book provides detailed information about them.
