About this listing

A traditional, cosy and welcoming apartment with two double bedrooms - ideal for families and groups of friends! This flat is my home and is filled with my books, art and teapots - I love living here and I hope you love it too!

Situated in a very peaceful area, although minutes from the heart of the trendy and upmarket West End of Glasgow, the neo-gothic University spire and Kelvingrove Park.

The space

My home is a bright and cosy traditional Glasgow flat situated in the heart of the vibrant West End of Glasgow.
Built in the 1870s, there are wooden floors and original windows in the living room, and a fully modernised kitchen and bathroom.
The flat has two bright and airy double rooms and comfortably sleeps four. There is a sofa and dining area in the living room, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, and my (extensive) collection of tea and ground coffee for your use.

This flat is perfect for a family or for some friends travelling together - it's ideally situated for a visit to Glasgow in the upmarket West End, and is very close to the Subway, Partick train station and main bus routes.

Guest access

The entire flat is yours when you stay here! Please make yourself at home, and enjoy the books, games and films - just please leave the flat as you found it!

Interaction with guests

Sadly I will not be in Glasgow this summer - I'm away on my own travels, which is why my home is available!

I will, however, only be a phone call away. I'd like to call and speak to all my guests personally, answer any questions you might have, and go over arrival arrangements. I have extensive family and friends in Glasgow - so if there are any issues at all there will always be someone on hand to help out!

My teenage daughter and I stayed her for 5 nights while she was attending a Summer school course in the city. It was our first time to do airbnb and we couldn't have done any better than here. A very comfortable and roomy flat with lots of personality, minutes from the bus and subway subway, close proximity to restaurants and cafes, quiet and clean. Though we didn't get a chance to meet Fiona as she was out of town, she could be easily reached at any time during our stay which gave us peace of mind. I will be recommending The Flat with the Yellow Fireplace to all my friends, and will be sure to stay her again if we are ever up in Glasgow again.

I would highly recommend this cool, spacious flat in Glasgow's trendy west end. Walking distance to just about anything you could want, and a great host. What more could you want?

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Fiona's flat. This is her home when she is not travelling and it is brimming with attention to detail and personality. She was not present but went above and beyond when it came to communication. Highly recommend!

Fiona's flat is lovely. Close enough to everything that going places isn't a hassle and far enough away from the bustle that you're not woken constantly. Fiona herself is the warmest and most helpful host you've ever met. Definitely come and stay!

Perfect in every way -- all we needed was more time to enjoy! This is a fantastic apartment and so well appointed -- even down to great bubble bath! After a long travel day getting there, the very play-able guitar and amazing book collection was just what we needed. The location is convenient to everything West End and a stone's throw to public transport too. Highly recommend, and Fiona was so easy to work with in all regards.

Fiona & her Yellow Fireplace Flat were fantastic. She was in regular contact with me a few days leading up to my reservation and throughout my stay. I traveled to Glasgow with 2 of my friends and the 3 of us were comfortable in her 2 bedroom. Everything in the flat makes you feel as if you're visiting an old friend. You feel welcome and at home! Although we didn't get the chance to meet Fiona this trip, we would stay here again in a heartbeat!! Thanks again for a lovely stay on our first trip to Scotland.

I am a slightly-more-mature student, and am lucky enough to live in a gorgeous flat in the West End of Glasgow with my partner, Tom. We hate to think of our home being lonely whilst we're away on one of our many trips, so we love having guests to make sure the flat is happy!
I'm from the Isle of Skye and would be happy to advise you on travel plans for the Highlands and Islands, so ask away if you're heading further North after Glasgow!
Tom and I are both crazy about travelling anywhere new, learning languages (I'm learning Spanish and Urdu, Tom's learning Japanese), and food!
We have a slight obsession with Miyasaki films, Indian cooking and (obscurely) zebra finches - of which we have two (don't worry - they'll be away on their holidays during your stay!)
I'm studying literature and politics, and am hoping for a career in either NGO's and sustainable development or just life-long travelling, and Tom's studying history and hopes to go on to teach.
