À propos de ce logement
Immaculate, comfortable third floor apartment with all the modern conveniences you could possibly want/need in safe, quiet area. Own off-road car parking space. Short walk to city centre. Convenient for transport links if needed. Great views and open outlook. Fridge stocked with basics on arrival. My apartment has every home comfort. It has been much appreciated by all my guests and will make your visit to this lovely city even more enjoyable.
The apartment, my home, is clean, bright and comfortable with a fantastic bird's eye leafy rooftop outlook. You will enjoy staying in as much as you will enjoy going out in this lovely city. On the days the Scottish sun shines you will be able to watch wonderful sunsets, 'though I can't offer you any guarantees there!
