We are Claire and Michael, husband and wife from Glasgow. We love our city, and like sharing our favourite places to visit, eat, drink and wander with visitors. We also love to travel and meet new people, and have stayed in some amazing Airbnbs all over the world. When we saw that Gerda of Glasgow was up for sale, we thought it would be an ideal place for people to enjoy our wonderful city. We look forward to welcoming you to this truly unique Airbnb here in the centre of Glasgow!
