Ed was a very welcoming and patient host for us and our 11 year old Maltese dog. He was a wealth of knowledge for public transport and local shops. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. His puppy was very friendly and playful, and excellent with our older little one.

Friendly host (and dog), knows lots about the local area and further afield, so is a very good start if you are planning travelling a bit of Scotland too. Property is in a lovely area. Room was clean and a good size and exceptional value for money

The description on the place is accurate. Ed was very accommodating and understanding with our check in time as we checked in at almost midnight. It is a good alternative to accommodation in Glasgow, especially if you have a car as you have a free parking in front of Ed's house.

Response from Ed:
Thank you for that, I'm glad you had a good, quiet nights sleep as many people do here.

Originally from the Glasgow area (Helensburgh) I probably have the west coast of Scotland traits, generally friendly & caring but we are not so good with 'nonsense' also I believe I'm honest & true but work too much.
Love; Ibiza, Hungary, good music, films, books, food, coffee & tea but I do mean good.
For those that stay at Newmilns (my home) you'll see me around the house & converse with you but at times I have a long working day & I'm not a great TV person, watch TV when I have time & chosen programs. you'll be welcomed in & shown around & then generally you'll be left to your own devices.
I travel as time allows or needs must, mainly to Ibiza, Hungary, Torre Del Mar, by whatever means it takes.
This is a no 'ism' house, live & let live (within reason)
I work on honesty, trust & respect.
I used to have a holiday let flat in Dunoon, Argyll, Scotland through Visit Scotland (the Tourist Board) so I hope my standards are good.
As from 9/10/14 I have moved back to Scotland, near Kilmarnock, Troon & Prestwick airport, East Ayrshire district.
25 miles from Glasgow, 50 miles to Edinburgh & Helensburgh.
