Scotland Airbnb an hour from Glasgow has a private outdoor pool with hot tub and stunning sea views

With summer fast approaching, the weather is (hopefully) on the horizon.

We know that in our country, when the mercury rises above 20c, we Scots need to calm down.

In the past, dozens of Glaswegians traveled to seaside towns such as Troon to bathe in an outdoor lido.

Luckily one still exists in Gourock, opening every summer to give Glasgow locals and city dwellers the chance to take a dip, without fear of dipping their toes in the cold west coast sea.

But for those looking for a little more privacy, you can rent a stunning manor house just 10 minutes’ drive – and an hour from Glasgow – which – highly unusual for Scotland – has its own private swimming pool.



You’d be forgiven for thinking you were on the mainland

Located in the picturesque village of Weymss Bay in Renfrewshire, Northcliff Manor offers room for eight people, a hot tub, stunning sea views as far as Bute – and, most importantly, a large outdoor swimming pool carrying customers away from dark Scotland to the sizzling continent.

But it’s not just about the outside, the period property is also filled with character inside, making it the perfect place to relax when the weather cools.

Unsurprisingly, from the photos accompanying the listing, guests lucky enough to stay at the mansion have given the accommodation rave reviews, with a stellar rating of 4.88.

And naturally, given the inconsistencies in Scottish weather, the pool is only used on a seasonal basis, from June to September, with all those dates for 2022 fully booked.

However, depending on the calendar, if you wanted to plan ahead, you might be able to secure a spot by the pool for next year.

When we checked on Airbnb, we found that a week’s stay at this fabulous property in Weymss Bay costs £500 a night.
