Travel to Glasgow


15 Glasgow

1 March 2015

Words: Gareth Rees / Image: 15 Glasgow

The husband and wife team behind 15 Glasgow, Shane and Laura McKenzie, describe it as a “boutique bed and breakfast”, and that’s exactly what it is, but it offers a little bit more luxury than your average family-run B&B. The magnificent Victorian townhouse, built in 1834, is located less than 10 minutes from Glasgow Central Station, close to the bars and restaurants of the city’s West End and the beautiful Kelvingrove Park. 

It might lack some of the amenities of a five-star hotel, but 15 Glasgow’s interior is as striking as any luxury property – and it offers peace and quiet. The Drawing Room, with its high ceiling, hardwood floors and restrained décor, is the pick of the property’s five rooms. Flooded with sunlight thanks to three floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the street and the residents’ gardens opposite, the former first-floor reception room has it all: a super king-size bed in which to enjoy your full Scottish breakfast, a lounge area with flat screen TV and a stylish en-suite shower room.
