About The Owner

This terrace townhouse which contains the flat used to be our personal home, but we moved 15 minutes away and now rent it our as a self-catering/holiday flat. Please enquire if you are interested in the large apartment upstairs. We are a Scot and an American couple and thus 'bi-continental'.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Scotland

The apartment is part of a red sandstone townhouse in Dowanhill, an historic and architecturally important area of Glasgow. The apartment has stained glass and rounded bay windows which reflect the art nouveau and Edwardian period in which it was built.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to cafes, markets and the University of Glasgow, the apartment is in a quiet residential area which is full of interesting buildings and it is a delight just to walk around the neighbourhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great week in Glasgow and thoroughly enjoyed staying in your wonderful apartment. It was a great base for seeing the sights in Glasgow and driving to other places. If you don't have a car, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is a great spot to visit. We also took the subway downtown several time.

Great apartment in Glasgow's West End

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little one bedroom apartment in the West End of Glasgow. Close to Byres Road which has countless cafes, restaurants and bars. Also some great food shopping. I have stayed here four times, usually in winter. The flat is cosy and warm and very comfortable. Ideal for a single traveller or a couple. The owners live above and are very welcoming and helpful.

Kelvingrove Park and the Art Gallery and Museum are within easy walking distance. The city is also easily reached via the Subway.

I have come to think of this place as "home away from home" when I'm in Glasgow. I'm sure I will return again and can't recommend it enough!

Fantastic accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location in the West End and within walking distance of Byres Road with its boutique shops, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, bus stops and

Hillhead subway. The apartment has everything you need for a memorable holiday. The description and facilities as outlined are very accurate. We had the pleasure of staying there for a month and found the apartment to be extremely comfortable and roomy. The bed was comfortable and ensured a goodnight's rest during our entire stay. Catherine and George are excellent hosts and were on hand for any enquiries we had. They had ensured the apartment was well stocked with literature and books on Glasgow and Scotland. No need to bring any such travel books with you. The property is very well maintained and very clean. We would certainly loved to come back and stay and have already recommended the apartment to our family and friends.

I found this apartment at very short notice and couldn't have asked for more. Fabulous owners who were able to share some knowledge of Glasgow before leaving me to enjoy the apartment for the week. Beautiful apartment with everything you need and well thought out. So lovely and quiet too. Superb location in the West End as well as being close to numerous transport links into the city centre. Definitely somewhere I would recommend to others.

This a beautiful part of Glasgow, wonderful buildings. The inside of the apartment lives up to expectations. I was welcomed by the owner who ensured that I had all I needed for that first evening. The apartment was comfortable, warm and quiet. Byres Road is close by so many excellent cafes and restaurants to chose from,,,,lunch on the mezzanine at Ubiquitous Chip is delightful. Dinner at Number Sixteen highly reommended. The Burrell Collection was interesting and stunning Stirling Castle only a short drive away. I would have no hesitation recommending a stay in this apartment..

The apartment is located in a quiet, historic, residential area which was built early in the 1900s. The red sand stone buildings with extensive stain glass windows, and bay fronted town houses was heavily influenced by the art nouveau style popular at the time. The apartment is a couple minutes from the major shopping street, Byres Road, which is replete with grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, a movie theatre, pubs, banks, etc. It is also close to Glasgow University, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the Botanic Gardens, the SECC and two hospitals.
