About Gordon Mackinnon

Record label A&R/Management

Gordon Mackinnon purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Gordon Mackinnon chose Scotland

It's a unique building. The only tenement in Glasgow built by the renowned Dixon family whose iron works was nearby and who specialised more in church and town hall architecture. The view out the front is not impeded by any other buildings and one can see for a good few miles.

The flat is in a quiet residential area. Short walk from bars and restaurants on Victoria Road and Pollockshaws Road. Just 5 to 10 minutes from one of Glasgow's nicest and well-kept parks - Queens Park. Just 7 minutes by train into Glasgow City Centre. Crosshill Station is directly outside the flat. Major bus route also a few minutes walk away. We have been doing rentals and holiday lets to a high standard for over two years now. Renting the flat out as a holiday let is new (previously we let it out long term via other advertising routes/agencies). However, feedback regarding the standards we maintain can be seen on our lodge's trip advisor page which has consistently positive feedback, as does our guest book.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Spotless, comfortable and spacious. Being beside the train station was so convenient as we did not have a car. 1.90 pounds for return trip to Glasgow Central and by showing your return ticket, ride free on the shuttle bus to Queen train station and back.

Gordon was very helpful, met us and went over the various appliances etc. and shopping, about. 20 minute walk to the grocery store. It is very easy to pick up groceries at the local Tescos, Poundland, etc. near the Central station on your return.

The kitchen is perfect if you want to cook your meals, well equiped and like the rest of the flat, charming. The beds were very comfortable and there is a lot of storage, even a wall of closets!

The downside to this terrific flat is the noise from the trains. They do not run all night and they did not bother us, the convenience made up for the noise. There are stairs as well from the train station and to the flat. If you are fit you will have no trouble with them.

We would certainly return should we be this way again.

Far and away the best VRBO experience we've had

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in half a dozen VRBO rentals in various parts of the world, we feel in a position to judge, and this flat is absolutely the best equipped accommodation we've seen. The camera which took the photos on the site had no "fish-eye" lens...the place is exactly as shown, only better. More fully fitted with utensils, paper products, appliances, and conveniences, this is a gem like few others. Situated adjacent to a commuter train station, when you stay here, you're less than 15 minutes from the heart of Glasgow, yet the trains are unobtrusive from the flat. Shops and large grocery chain stores are easily accessed, on foot or by car/taxi. Hardwood floors in hall and salon, wall to wall in the bedroom, tile-laminate in the kitchen and bath, area rug in salon, fine furniture throughout, quiet neighborhood........we couldn't have been happier. We very highly endorse this accommodation for any considering a stay in Glasgow.

Large, bright, tasteful apartment .

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well maintained character apartment with a well stocked kitchen for anything one might need and the big bonus of having a washing machine. A great location with the train station literally across the street, a 10 minute ride got us into Central Station and most everything was a walk from there. Gordon was a good host with lots of info on the neighbourhood and suggestions on museums, galleries and restaurants. We would stay again if we returned to the wonderful city of Glasgow.

Great Flat!

  • 5 of 5

This flat suited ours needs wonderfully! It was exactly as advertised and extremely comfortable. The owner was a delight to deal with and went out of his way to make sure we had all the information we needed. He had flowers, cookies and chocolate on the pillow of our little traveler. He had even put up a Christmas tree for us. The little five year old traveler in our group appreciated it greatly and it made a nice backdrop for our family picture. We were in Glasgow to visit our daughter who lived very close to the flat. The proximity to the train station made it very easy to get around. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Hope to stay here again.

Beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 days in Glasgow at this beautiful well equipped apartment. It was very clean and was well supplied with things like sugar, salt, pepper, oil, spices and tea......all the basics. Gordon was in contact with us to make sure things were going well as he was out of town, but had someone available if we had a problem. The flat is only 8 min out of Glasgow and there is frequent service. We stopped a few times at the little shop across the street for newspapers etc. It is run by a very nice man. We like to sleep with a window open but found it was a bit noisy from the trains but we just kept the window closed. Everything else made up for the train noise. We would recommend this apartment and would stay there again. Thanks Gordon

This apartment is a great find!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very spacious, well stocked and well appointed. Its proximity to a train station makes it a perfect location for sightseeing in Glasgow. The apartment was comfortable and very quiet even though the street and train station are nearby. It has a huge kitchen with modern appliances, gas stove, dishwasher, washing machine and huge refrigerator/freezer. Although there were only two us, it could easily accommodate a large family. Were we to return to Glasgow, we would definitely want to stay here again and highly recommend it. Gordon, the owner, was very helpful upon our arrival and provided us with detailed information about the apartment. Don't miss out on this wonderful apartment if you are coming to Glasgow!
