Description

Brough Hall is a wonderful listed Victorian building located in the Oakshaw conservation area within Paisley, just west of Glasgow. This first floor, self-catering apartment is ideal for a couple who want to enjoy all that Glasgow - a City of Culture - and the surrounding area have to offer, whilst staying in a charming historic property. The building is named after Peter Brough who was one of the wealthiest men in Paisley during the late 19th century and lived on this very site. Brough Hall was built after his death in Scottish Baronial style and was originally designated as a nurses home. This is carved above the front door, from where the nurses ministered to the sick and pregnant of Paisley.

Today there are five privately owned apartments. Flat Four is located on the first floor, looking out over the front of the property. Oakshaw Street is quiet, leafy and is a no through road. Inside the apartment there is an open plan living space with high ceilings and large windows. Everything leads off from the lounge, the kitchen is tucked round the corner and is galley style, and the dining area sits within the tower alcove. The bedroom has a wonderful large super kingsize bed.

Brough Hall really does make a fantastic holiday location from where to access both city life and countryside locations across central and southern Scotland alike.

About the local area

Locally there is much to see and do. Coats Observatory is just along the street and is open to the public. Paisley has a great Museum, Art Gallery, Paisley Abbey - which is a stunning building - and there is a good shopping centre. You are close to all local amenities, at the bottom of the hill is a selection of shops, bar and restaurants. The local train station is only a short walk away providing access to explore into Glasgow or further afield without having to drive. Bus links are also good and the airport is only 3 miles away. Glasgow has fantastic shopping areas and Buchanan Street is a must to visit. There are numerous museums all worth seeing - Kelvingrove, Burrell, House of Art Lovers, Mitchell Library - to name but a few. From Brough Hall you can explore further afield. Perhaps north to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park where you can enjoy spectacular scenery, walking, cycling or perhaps climbing Ben Lomond to "bag a Munro"! To the south into Ayrshire, is Robert Burns country and from here you could take a day trip to the Isle of Bute or Arran. Alternatively head east into Stirlingshire and visit the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle.
