About the property

Central Location with FREE Internet & Central Heating & Beautifully Furnished

Very modern & beautifully fully furnished apartment in newly built (built 2008) apartment block (Elipta) - 3 minutes walk to local train station with easy access into Glasgow (about 20 minutes)

This lovely apartment is situated on the 2nd floor and features Gas central heating throughout, Double Glazing, and has the additional benefit of an En-Suite Shower-room alon with main family bathoom

Free internet. Ideal Central location with secure entry access and lift to 2nd floor.

The communal areas are fully carpeted and the entire building is cleaned on a daily basis by the factoring management company.

It's hard to imagine an apartment more ideally located for commuting with a quick 2 to 3 minute walk to Canal Street Train Station and only 2 miles from the M8 motorway or the airport.

The internet system within the apartment is there for your free unlimited use and is quick stable and reliable.

A new 50 inch TV installed Sept 2015 has all UK Freeview channels and many HD channels. With the USB input you can also watch movies or TV shows you or playback MP3 music files you may have downloaded onto a USB drive.

A Blu Ray player is also provided with a selection of Blu Ray & DVD discs.

A brand new and very comortable king size mattress for the Master Bedoom has just been put in late Sept 2015.

2 brand new single beds put in September 2015 and brand new bedroom carpets also fitted September 2015

the apartment looks fantastic!

About Brian Soutar

My wife Alison and I (Brian) purchased the apartment new in 2007.

We have now decided that we would like to rent it out to holiday makers visiting Scotland or perhaps professionals working for short periods in or near Paisley or Perhaps in or near Glasgow's City Centre. We feel this lovely apartment would also be ideal for guests visiting family or friends in the area but perhaps don't wish to impose too much. Without doubt our apartment is a better and cheaper solution than any Hotel and our guests can expect all the conveniences of a superb and comfortable home.

Why Brian Soutar chose Scotland

We chose this property as we liked the fact that it is in a very high ameneity area and perfect for commuting, shopping, or eating out.

Our apartments location is almost unique being so close to the airport (yet you never hear a plane) So close to the Train station (yet you never hear a train) and the M8 Motorway.....You don't hear that either!

Built to the highest modern standards the apartment features Gas central heating throughout, top quality double glazing, and incredible sound insulation which is perfect for a peacefull stay.

There is a secure door entry system, a lift to the apartment which is situated on the 2nd floor, carpeted communal hallways and private and free car parking. Ample parking spaces in private car park adjoining building....Perfect!

Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment. Four adults spent a week there. The train stop is very close. It took us less than a five minute walk. Great for getting into Glasgow. Paisley isn't the best area in Scotland. We didn't walk around after dark.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am truly saddened with your final comment about the many many fine people who live in the Town of Paisley and your attitude towards them about "walking about after dark" A silly unfair comment indeed! I guess you sleep with the light on? I'm sure the fine people of Paisley would be rather disappointed with you. Brian

After spending five weeks In this lovely apartment we can't thank Brian enough for making out stay such a pleasant one. The flat in itself is very comfortable and spacious with everything necessary to do the cooking at home, if you want to, as there are plenty of restaurants and ready-made food shops all around. The location is terrific as there are bus stops a few yards away. and the train station to Glasgow is only a three minute walk away. The town center is only a ten minute walk away. The only downside for us was that the beds were a bit soft for us but that is a matter of taste and apparently they are about to be renewed. So thank you once again, Brian, for giving us a place to stay home from home, we certianly will recommend it and hope to return some day soon.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with this apartment, very well equipped especially the kitchen, bright decor. If I had one negative , it would be the bathroom did not have a shower so everyone has to share the en-suite, depends how long you are staying as to if this would be an issue.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review. Having only the one shower in the en suite is something we have thought about and have considered installing a second shower in the main bathroom. With your comment about this we will arrange to have a shower installed in the main bathroom also as soon as is practical. It is very important to Alison and I that our guests have a really enjoyable stay. Hope you book with us again soon. Kind Regards Brian

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights as we were going to a concert in Glasgow. The flat is spacious, well laid out and everything you could wish for. Brian is always on hand at the end of an email or phone call to assist if required and Ann came out when we had an issue with the key and resolved it in 15 minutes. Great place and we will certainly book again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your 5 star feedback and hope you enjoyed the Carrie Underwood country and western show at the SECC exhibition centre in Glasgow and the superb bars and restaurants in Merchant City in Glasgow. The train station just round the corner is so very handy and convenient. Great if you book with us again and thanks for leaving the apartment so need and tidy. Brian and Alison

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Glasgow International Airport at 3 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Canal at 100 Metres Nearest Golf : Barshaw at 1 Miles Nearest Train : Canal Street Station at 150 Metres Nearest Motorway : M8 at 2 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The Canal at 100 Metres Nearest Ski : Glen Coe at 100 Miles Nearest Beach : Prestwick at 30 Miles Car: not necessary

Our Apartment benefits from a very central location in Paisley town and is only a few minutes drive from the Glasgow International Airport, and the M8 motorway.

it is only a very short walk to some excellent bars and reataurants.

The local train station with direct links into the Glasgow centre (about a 20 minute journey) is only 150 metres away, and large supermarkets like Morrisons are again a very short walk.

A few minutes away by car or foot is Paisley Abbey, and local swimming baths (Paisley Lagoon). A 5 minute drive away is the Odeon Multiplex Cinema. There are numerous fitness centres like the John LLoyd centre within 6 or 7 minutes drive.

The apartment is ideal if you are staying on holiday and would make a wonderful base for visiting the beautiful scenery of Loch Lomond, The Trossachs, Skiing in Winter (90 minute drive) hill walking in Glennifer Braes.....the list simply goes on and on.

Italian, Indian and Chinese restaurants and take-away establishments are in abundance and most offer a home delivery service.

If it is work that brings you to the area, the apartment is extremely convenient whether you are working in or around Paisle or need to commute into Glasgow's City Centre.

Canal Street train station is moments from the apartment with direct access into the very centre of Glasgow and Glasgows Central Station.

If you need to catch a flight, it is only a 6 or 7 minute £5 taxi fare to the airport as it is only 2 miles away.
