If you can arrange to go, don't miss this experience. The house is delightful and captures Machintosh. Conceived in 1901 and finally built 80+ years later, it is a beautiful interpretation of his and her designs. We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant.

Check their website as it does weddings also and the exhibition changes its opening times upto a week at a time. The cafe has separate opening times and is open to the public more frequent.

Sorry I can answer your question. I was leading a tour, which means the bus driver got us there, with the help of a local who served as a private guide. I bet it's really beautiful there now that summer has arrived. Enjoy!
