Interaction with Guests
I am often at work, either out or at home and have a busy schedule. I think my flat is ideal for independent travellers who are happy to explore Glasgow and enjoy themselves as I will most likely be working, quite often at home (when I use the living room as my office). I really appreciate guests respecting this: if you're looking for somewhere to spend a lot of time hanging out at home then no hard feelings - my flat just isn't for you!
The flat is within the famous Barrowlands market which runs over weekends and is a real treasure trove. Lots of stalls and quirky bits and bobs to rummage through plus a fantastic cafe. During the week, the market does not run and the area can seem a little bit run down, but I have never encountered any problems and neither have my guests. I'd just encourage people not to judge too harshly, it's an area being regenerated with lots of local character and soul. I live next door to the world famous Barrowlands gig venue so at weekends there are often bands playing which is great, but there can be some noise until about 11pm.
The flat is a few minutes walk from the Trongate where you can find the stylish, classy Merchant City area of the city. This has plenty of individual restaurants, cafes and bars plus some gorgeous boutique shops. This area leads into the city centre with the marvellous GOMA, lots of shops, bars and interesting galleries.
Round the corner from the flat is Glasgow Green, perfect for a relaxed stroll. The People's Palace and Winter Gardens are here and make a lovely change from the busy city centre.
Nearest overground stations are High Street, Argyle Street, Queen Street and Glasgow Central. All within 10-15 minutes walk.
Nearest subway station St.Enoch.
Lots of buses right outside the door.
Other Things to Note
Laundry service available for £3 per load (dependent on use).
Be nice to the cat!
Please note that I work from home a lot of the time so I may be using the living area for teaching/work at points during the daytime while you're staying, and it will be unavailable for use.
