About This Listing
**Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence Winner!!**
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.

Amazing apartment and great host. One of the most comfortable beds i've ever slept in and a really beautiful and characterful building in a great location in Glasgow. Highly recommended!!
David was lovely, the flat was easy to find, beautifully decorated, super clean and super comfortable. Had a great nights sleep.
Huge thanks to David for a warm welcome, some interesting chat and a beautiful stay. If you're browsing between properties and can't make your mind up, decide on this one. I can't overstate how atmospheric and lovely this listing is ... about as good as it gets, Airbnb or elsewhere.
The property is located in a great part of Glasgow -- out of the city centre but full of beauty and character wherever you throw your gaze. Nature, nourishing cafes, great bars, all within walking distance. It's a great starting point to a walking tour of Glasgow, with plenty of museums and art collections along the way.
David was very friendly and welcoming when we arrived in his amazing apartment, full of recommendations of where the best pubs and restaurants are. The apartment was very clean, great location and very safe. I would have no problem recommending it to others.
David was extremely warm and welcoming, the flat is in a lovely area very close to the botanical gardens and the west end attractions. The flat itself was extremely clean and well appointed and we had a great nights sleep whilst we were there. David was a fantastic host and gave us lots of helpful information and places to visit in the area!

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.
