2 bedroom, 2 bathroom fully refurbished 2018 in heart of Milngavie Town Centr
About Shona Mackay
Born and bred in Milngavie, I have loved growing up in one of Scotland’s best villages (some would say town). The surrounding areas are amazing for walking, running, cycling... and a real breath of fresh air! This area boasts some of Scotland’s best features: West Highland Way (Europe's most popular walk), Mugdock Country Park (inc cinema), Waterworks and many more. They have been on my doorstep all my life and I have never tired of their beauty which improves with every season. My desire for the outdoors inspired this Air BNB project, offering every visitor the opportunity to see wonderful Milngavie and its surroundings from the heart of the village. If you need someone to show you around or advise what the town has to offer, I would be delighted to help. I simply love the outdoors, finding new trails and exploring. I have been lucky enough to travel a lot of the world as my parents work on Cruise ships as musicians, and have done for over 40 years. I was very fortunate to see a lot of the world first hand with them. Norway probably tops my list of scenic trips, as the Fjords are simply breathtaking, but having visited China, Russia, Africa, North America and other parts of the world, everywhere offers something amazing. As a musician, I play the sax and piano, and even thought about it as a profession, but decided other paths would be for me. Give me a good gig any day of the week, from Jazz, Classical, Rock, Pop or simply open mic nights. Food and films play a huge part of my social calendar and believe it or not Milngavie has its own cinema, small in stature (50 seats), but fun to visit in Mugdock Country Park. I love war, action and non-fiction films if possible. As for food, yes please, and I am not fussy, I’ll try anything (apart from Ribena and Chocolate Orange). We are very lucky for good food in Milngavie, there is plenty to choose from. I really want to make my guests welcome and enjoy visiting the Milngavie village.
