The spacious living-reception area has a further double sofabed, enabling both living rooms to provide extra guest beds if required. The cosy lounge has a real log/coal fire. The property is centrally heated [fair usage policy applies] and will create a 'home-from-home'. Extensive private garden provides ample space for outdoor games or running around whilst barbeque meals are being prepared on the gas BBQ (extra cleaning charge). TV, wi-fi and other online entertainment available. Board games & childrens' toys laid on in case of less favourable weather. Striking new contemporary kitchen-diner with fabulous triple-aspect views and direct access via wide timber deck to garden via French doors. The property occupies an elevated position which affords magnificent south-westerly views with fabulous sunsets to see. It is set in a quiet, residential neighbourhood and benefits from high-walled perimeters, affording tremendous privacy, yet enjoys easy access (< 150m away) to the start of the West Highland Way, Mugdock Country Park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. The West Highland Way + Forth-Clyde Canal provide easy cycle tracks within easy reach. Located in a luxury garden suburb, 15 minutes from Glasgow city centre.

Guests are often rewarded with stunning panoramic vistas over nearby hills and countryside. Families with youngsters will be easily entertained by the proximity of EITHER (in one direction) the many walks, lochs and beautiful scenery OR (in the other direction) the Kelvingrove Galleries, Botanic Gardens or Transport Museum and copious clubs/concert venues. Oodles of easily-accessed bus, taxi and train transport options (all <5 minutes walk) provide access to the many outstanding cultural, sporting, music and culinary delights which helped make Glasgow into this city of culture and architecture. Milngavie is one of Glasgow’s most sought-after semi-urban/semi-rural areas with easy access to the city centre. The village is well regarded for its situation on the edge of the beautiful Mugdock Country Park with the West Highland Way starting close by. With proximity to stunning scenery everywhere to be seen, Milngavie remains one of the most beautiful and rewarding places to live in Scotland. As well as its rich history, Milngavie is served by a wide range of retailers, restaurants and pleasant inns. In addition, it has fantastic facilities that include grocery supermarkets, leisure and sports centres, golf courses, cinema complexes. The town also benefits from fantastic transport links for the M8 to Edinburgh, A9 to Stirling/Perth or M74 to the South and England. With its frequent and efficient local and main line railway networks, Glasgow is not only easily accessible by car or train but well serviced by two local airports. Guests can simply arrive, relax and unwind in the spacious living areas, comprising a custom-made kitchen featuring solid oakwood finishings and modern kitchen appliances to prepare scrumptious lunches or evening meals. Alternatively, meals can be prepared by trained cooks. [During the winter seasons, they have catered for ski chalet guests in the Alps.] Very reasonable prices available for family meals - breakfasts, afternoon teas and evening meals - whilst you enjoy the vast range of nearby amenities, bars, coffee shops - all within walking distance.More

About the neighbourhood
Located in a luxury garden suburb, 15 minutes from Glasgow city centre. 1 minute walk to an abundance of local amenities including independent shops: crafts, delis & grocery stores all within the traffic-free village centre. Easy and pretty walks via West Highland Way to nearby Mugdock Country Park and around Milngavie Reservoir Guests are often rewarded with stunning panoramic views, especially sunsets. Milngavie hosts the water reservoir for Glasgow (with its beautiful walkway), and is within easy range of Loch Lomond & Loch Katrine.
Getting around
Milngavie itself is a lovely pedestrianised village 6 miles from the centre of Glasgow. What makes it such a most desirable area is that it sits on the edge of beautiful countryside yet has the benefit of being well connected to other parts of Scotland by road and rail. There are 4 trains each hour into Glasgow city centre, each taking between 20-25 minutes. The town is also close to an abundance of transport links - eg. ROAD (M8, M74, M77, M9), plentiful rail connections (eg. direct train to/from Edinburgh), airports (GLA/EDI) and ferry terminals (eg. Greenock/Gourock/Stranrar).
