She calls regularly at Helensburgh during the summer. She is pictured at Gourock in 1970.

House at Rhu440 viewsSir James Guthrie (1859-1930), who lived much of his life at Rhu and Helensburgh and was the leader of the now famous Glasgow Boys, painted this picture entitled 'My house at Rhu'. His home for many years in the village was the family home of his wife, Helen Newton Whitelaw, who lived at her family home, a Rhu mansion called Rowmore, which has stunning grounds and views over the Gareloch. Despite the title, this appears to show only the entrance. Oil on canvas, 56 x 41 cms, it is in the collection of Fife Council and is at Kirkcaldy Art Gallery and Museum.
