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. We are a Scot and an American couple and thus 'bi-continental'.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Glasgow

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.

Lovely, well-appointed flat in a wonderful location.

  • 4 of 5

The location was convenient for the airport (short taxi ride) and 7-15 minute walk to subway or Scotrail train. The flat is close enough to a main thoroughfare for an easy walk to groceries, cafes, restaurants, etc., but far enough away to remain quiet.

The flat includes a kitchen stocked with tools for easily cooking meals. Comfortable bed and a nicely sized living room for relaxing after an adventerous day.

Owner met us on arrival -- even though we were delayed more than an hour -- and walked us through the apartment, graciously suggesting spots for dinner and other activities.

We had a great time and hope to return to Glasgow and the Queensgate garden apartment.

Excellent flat in Glasgow!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is wonderful! The location is excellent and was within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The flat is beautifully maintained and in a georgous home. The flat had everything we could have needed and was very cozy and comfortable. George and Catherine couldn’t have been more gracious hosts, provided great recommendations, and were wonderful to talk to.

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!

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.
