Situated in a quiet pocket minutes from the bustle and buzz of Byres Road, your new home in Glasgow is an absolute delight. Furnished to a high standard, yet comfy and warm, I've made this top floor flat into a most welcoming home.
Glasgow's Botanic Gardens are so close that I think of them as the front yard. The flat's back yard is a wonderful tree-lined oasis of quiet and guests are free to use this space to relax in whenever they want.
Glasgow University is close-by and can be seen from the South facing side of the apartment.
A self-service continental breakfast is included, and Vegetarian and Vegan options are available.
The immediate neighbourhood is quiet, though some fine cafés are located literally a hop, skip and jump away on Queen Margaret Drive.
Byres Road, and all it's wonderful attractions, is a 5 minute dander from the flat. This area offers some of the best restaurants, cafés, pubs and shops that Glasgow offers, with Ashton Lane especially proving perennially popular.
Public transport links are fantastic with both Hillhead and Kelvinbridge underground stations, and a wealth of bus connections, only a matter of minutes away. For Drivers, Great Western Road is seconds from the door and it offers quick access to the main motorways and roads in and out of the city.
I don't have many rules to be honest but most of the floors are newly sanded and so I have an outdoor shoes off, kettle-on rule! :)
I ask that guests equally relax and respect my home while staying.
Check in is 2pm, with check out being at 11am.
We had a great stay in this beautiful West End apartment. Great breakfast and David gave us good restaurant suggestions. Would stay here again if back in Glasgow!
Had a fabby time in Glasgow @ David's B&B. Everything was tidy and an excellent breakfast :)
Had the best Indian food in Glasgow (outside of India) at Mother India, and went shopping in the city centre. Great place to spend a couple of your lovely holidays ;)
The beautifully furnished, comfortable and clean flat is in a quiet neighbourhood but also central to the bustling West End and close to subway/bus. I arrived much later than expected - sorry about the delay again! - but David was still very welcoming and made me feel right at home.
Mum and I had a fabulous time staying with David in his beautiful apartment in the West End!
The location was great - close all the West end shops, restaurants and cafes and subway and buses.
The room was spacious, light and spotless! As was the bathroom (which mum wants to replicate at home!)
David was a great host, more than willing to have a chat and provide us with tips and suggestions for Glasgow but also keen to hear about what we got up to while we were there!
We highly recommend staying with David, beautiful apartment, great location and a top host!
Lovely location just minutes from botanic gardens (from which the city sightseer bus leaves to cover all museums etc.) and west end cafe life and university atmosphere. David was very friendly and fun and I found his advice on best places to eat and ways to get around was well worth taking. David's home is stylish and he was attentive to providing a clean and spacious room, comfy bed, travel magazines, extra blanket in wardrobe etc. Quality breakfast items were purchased based on my preferences. He even helped carry my case down stairs to the cheap pre booked taxi ride to main Glasgow station (only £5). In summary, a lovely host and home.
David's flat is a lovely top-floor flat in a classic Glasgow tenement. It has been beautifully restored retaining original wood flooring and high ceilings. It felt clean and stylish, although with a modern bathroom which was a welcome departure from the style of the rest of the flat.
David is really nice (and interesting) to chat to and easy going. He made us feel very welcome, gave us the tour and then let us get on with things ourselves. We had a lovely self-service breakfast both mornings.

About the Host, David (And Wonderful Assistant, Morag!)
I have travelled extensively in Scotland and overseas, and still travel frequently for work and pleasure. I spent a few years living and working in Canada and Australia, and so these two countries will always have a special place in my heart. Some of my other most memorable trips include - Iceland, Mauritius, Borneo, Jordan and India. Currently the wonderfully vibrant city of Istanbul comes at the top of my favourite cities list, with New York, Helsinki, Lisbon and Budapest currently fighting it out for second place!
I love nothing more than meeting new people, from whichever country they may hail. and look forward to making some new friends and acquaintances through Airbnb.
Hailing from the Highlands, I'm bilingual, and a very proud 'Gael' or Scottish Gaelic speaker. I am also a native English speaker. I'm passionate about my country and am lucky to know her very well - having lived and worked in the North, South, East and West. I'm always happy to share my knowledge of Scotland with my guests.
I am in love with music, especially new stuff that I haven't heard - any suggestions? Long term firm favourites of mine are Led Zeppelin, Prince and Pink Floyd, but right now I'm very much enjoying Mercan Dede's modern twist on traditional Turkish music and a taxi driver's Bedouin CD I copied hurriedly in the back of his taxi in Agadir.
