You can contact us at any time if you need us, but if not we will leave you to enjoy your stay without interruption.
The apartment really does have the best of both worlds! In the heart of Glasgow's west end with all its hustle & bustle and wonderful array of restaurants and bars...but surrounded by trees, rivers and beautiful parks.
EATING & DRINKING
The apartment is on a quiet street but within a 5 minute walk to some of the best eating places in Glasgow. The Oran Mor, the bothy, North Star Cafe, Ubiquitous Chip, and so on.......Ashton Lane, is our absolute favourite!!! A narrow cobbled street under strings of fairy lights, offering a wide selection of food and drinks to suit all. Most places are family friendly!
There are plenty of supermarkets in the area too; waitrose and M&S foods being the closest...just a few short mins walk away.
THE IMMEDIATE OUTDOORS
The west end of Glasgow is a fantastic place to explore with a wide range of activities for all ages. Access to the stunning river walk can be gained very close to the apartment. This walk passes the botanic gardens, Glasgow University and Kelvingrove Park/Museum. Kelvingrove park now has three children’s play areas as well as a huge skate park...not to be missed by our little guests. Kelvingrove Museum is a stunning place to visit - for all the family as is the truly wonderful Transport Museum with its historic Tall Ship. All free entry!
