Scottish flogging “COP26 accommodation” in Ardrossan for £ 3,000
A SCOT terminates social media users after whipping up ‘COP26 accommodation’ in Ardrossan for £ 3,000.
The ground-floor apartment was listed and shared on Facebook with just a photo of the garden, and people took to the comments to debate its legitimacy.
The apartment, with two to three bedrooms, has its own separate living-dining room, is intended to accommodate six to eight people and is ‘under renovation to a very high standard’.
The Facebook post explains that the prize is on the entire climate change conference being held in Glasgow.
He says: “The price is for the duration of COP26.
“Sleep 6 and can be up to 8 if needed. Currently being renovated to a very high standard.
“Photos to be added tomorrow. In Ardrossan, 3 stations (40 minutes from Glasgow) 5-10 minutes on foot.
“Fully insured as a vacation rental, this is not someone’s apartment, it is official business.
“The photograph is of the back garden which has a private dining room for 6 people if time permits for the conference.
Ultra fast WIFI, Bluetooth printer, USB, sockets in the living rooms, flat screens in all bedrooms and living rooms.
“The main living room is 55 inches with Bose surround sound. Bicycle storage on site and pick-up from and to stations available if required.
Social media users have flocked to the comments to share their disbelief at the announcement.
Someone asked “What’s the price?” Do not make me laugh “.
