About Catherine Macdonald

This semi-detached house used to be our home, but we moved 15 minutes away and now rent it out for self-catering/holiday use. The house has a long history in my wife's family. We are a Scottish and American couple .

Catherine Macdonald purchased this house in 2010

Why Catherine Macdonald chose Scotland

This house was where my wife lived as a child, and she vividly remembers playing in the long front garden. In recent years, we purchase both the bottom flat and the flat above and put them together by means of an extension to the rear containing a staircase. The house contains both modern features, and many of the original details.

What makes this house unique

The house is located in a unique conservation zone on the west side of Glasgow, the houses and lanes present an interesting history of early 20th century development out of what once was the extensive Scotstoun Estate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay in Lennox Cottage. Beautifully decorated - we loved the gorgeous kitchen and luxury bathroom. We hope to return very soon.

A beautiful property with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many properties and this was one of our favourites. The house is impeccably clean and charming. Everything you might need is at your disposal. We thought it said two bedrooms when booking, but to our surprise there are three bedrooms in this home. The location was fantastic for us. We took a day trip to Edinburgh and spent time at the Harbour and City Center in Glasgow. The front and back gardens are amazing. A lovely place to relax after a day of sightseeing. You will not be disappointed with this rental.

Magnificent garden and house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a peaceful week at this large house with its exquisite summer gardens. In addition to being surrounded by a lovely neighborhood and parks, the location is easily accessible to bus transportation for the sightseeing we planned. At the end of the day, we always delighted in being able to return to 'our' cottage and gardens!

Very clean and quiet. Would rent again

  • 5 of 5

The house didn't feel like a rental with all the personal touches. Home away from home in immaculate condition. Off street parking in very quiet neighborhood. 3 generous bedrooms made perfect family home. Beautiful gardens.

Charming home for 10 days

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time in this charming cottage. It's furnished with so much love and taste which made us feel at home straight away. Our favourite place was the big table in front of the AGA where it was so warm and cosy. The boys enjoyed making their toast "the AGA way". The front garden was perfect for our Easter egg hunt with many great hiding places (some chocolate eggs might still be there to be found) and we could even enjoy the patio in the sunshine on a few days. It's very conveniently located with easy access to the city centre, but it felt like a little hideaway when we came back exploring what Glasgow has to offer.

We will definitely recommend this lovely place to friends and family.

Thanks Catherine for making our stay so special!
