Description

Our beautiful ground-floor flat in a wonderful listed building, on a lovely, quiet street in a conservation area, is the perfect base to explore the city of Glasgow, the must-see West Highlands and many more of the countless attractions of Scotland.

The flat is a fine example of a traditional Glasgow tenement and retains many original features. It's in a listed building, set within the beautiful conservation area of Pollokshields. It has just about every modern convenience you could need and is a very comfortable place to spend some time.

The guest room has a comfy double bed with brand-new mattress and, for colder weather, a brand-new electric blanket; an LCD TV with Apple TV connected in the room (there's no TV signal in the room, but you're welcome to use our Netflix account via Apple TV, or sign in to your iTunes account to download movies or TV shows) as well as a Tassimo coffee-making machine. The room also has a small dresser, a nice Danish chair, a chest of drawers, bedside lamps, a hairdryer, a full-length mirror, a few books and local-interest magazines.

We provide towels and the bedding is always nice and clean. Also, we just had a brand new blackout blind fitted, so if you want to make like 1974-era David Bowie and sit in a darkened room all day, eating peppers and drinking milk, be our guest! We'd forego the burning pentagram, mind.

We closed our AirBnB calendar for a couple of months while we had building and upgrading work carried out, and this is our grand reopening! The kitchen has just been completely refitted to state-of-the-art specification and is fully equipped with every modern convenience (but no microwave) including a brand-new washing machine, a Siemens coffee maker, a Dualit toaster, dishwasher, gas countertop stove, electric eye-level double oven/grill and huge refrigerator with water line and ice dispenser. There is more crockery, glassware, cookware, cutlery and utensils than you will ever need, as well as a vast pantry, the contents of which guests are free to use, as long as we're not left short - ie: don't use the last oatcake without buying some, don't finish the cereal without buying some, don't finish the milk, coffee etc etc. People do, you know...

The bathroom is also freshly upgraded to a high standard, with vast walk-in shower with powerful rain shower-head, enormous mirror, large heated towel-rail and underfloor heating.

The bathroom is shared with us and though we're happy for you to luxuriate, as it's our only one it's best not to take forever in there!

We also just had a brand new, state-of-the-art boiler fitted, so the place is toastier than ever, with an endless supply of instant hot water.

If we're home in the evening we'll usually be watching TV. Guests are free to use the living room when we're not at home, but we like to have it to ourselves if we're home.

We're always happy to give any advice or help you might need at any time. We know all of the best local places to eat, drink and hang out.

Pollokshields is, in my opinion, one of the most charming corners of Glasgow. It's a conservation area containing many listed buildings of particular architectural interest and significance, has a real village atmosphere, yet is just a few minutes' train ride from the centre of Glasgow, one of Europe's greatest cities.

Access to the Scottish Highlands couldn't be easier, with Loch Lomond barely 30 minutes away by car, also accessible by train or bus from the centre of the city.

Just a few steps from the flat there is a charming street with several shops, cafes and bars where you will find most of what you might need on a day-to-day basis, including what's possibly the best coffee in the city.

There are two beautiful parks - Maxwell and Queen's - within easy walking distance, as well as the subway station from where you can reach the West End of the city in a few minutes.

The O2 Academy is very close by, Barrowland can be reached in very short time, and the Emirates Arena is only 10 minutes' drive away.

Many overseas guests express a wish to see Loch Ness; if you're on a tight schedule I would advise that seeing Loch Lomond instead, then driving around an hour further north to experience the intimidating and eye-popping Glencoe would be a better use of your time.

Pollokshields West train station is barely a minute's walk from the flat, from where you can get into Glasgow city centre in around four minutes, or even to the Ayrshire coast.

The Glasgow Subway station is a straight 15-minute walk away.

Glasgow Airport is 15 minutes away by taxi.

If you arrive by car and are heading in to the city, its way better to leave your car parked for free outside the flat and take the train in to the city.

If you're coming from the airport and there's more than one of you, it's way more time- and cost-effective to share a cab (or, even better, an Uber) to get here than using public transport.

If you're arriving by car, parking is free, safe and plentiful right outside the flat.
