The space

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 space.

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.

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.

The apartment is absolutely gorgeous with many of the old classic features (cornicing, fireplaces etc) that set it apart from newer apartments. It's very luxurious and comfortable at the same time, and we found it to be very well equipped with all the modern gadgets we could need - we especially loved the Bose sound system, pillow like beds, and the bread maker! All in all, a fantastic apartment that we really hope to return to again.

David was an excellent host, really friendly and funny and his home is beautiful, exactly like in the photos. The bed was also incredibly comfy, ad the flat really close to Byres Road and all the amenities. I would highly recommend David and his house, after a great week there.

David's flat is in a lovely quiet part of Glasgow and within easy reach of the City Centre and (importantly for my work trip) the SECC. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance and supermarkets just around the corner. All making for a smooth stay. David was charming and very helpful and he has a particularly beautiful accent! perhaps even more lovely than presenter Gordon Buchanan! And the bed mattress was superb.

David was a pleasure to meet and his rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. The bed was quite comfortable. It was a walk up so plan on stairs but that is why you expect in an Historic building. His breakfast was well stocked and I truly enjoyed our conversations. David gave us some indispensable local recommendations that were spot on.

David's a great host and the appartment is lovely! The location was good (about 8 min walk to the subway) in the best area of Glasgow. Whenever we needed something, David was there to help. Thanks again for our pleasant and homely stay!

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.
