The Ailsa Course Turnberry provides the spectacular backdrop for the 2009 Open Golf with practice rounds starting July 12th and the final round on July 19th. The course is only about an hour away from Glasgow so staying at the Library would give you easy access to the Golf plus all that Glasgow can offer you in the evenings. Great restaurants, pubs, clubs, concerts, cinema, theatre etc or just relax in our wonderful apartment.

Public transport is easy to the course as we are only minutes from the central train station. Trains will run to Girvan with special bus links to Turnberry. So no need to worry about driving or bringing a car when you have accommodation so centrally situated in the city. If you do bring a car then still no need to drive and pay a lot for car parking at the course - leave your car in High St car park for only £7.50 per day. Of course if you prefer to take your car then the M77 is easily accessible from the town centre.

We are currently offering a whole week's package to include accommodation and admission to every day's action at the Open Golf. The price based on 2 persons is only £550 per person. To find out more about this then visit http://bookaflatinglasgow.com/golf.html

2009 at the Library

Here we are in 2009 already. We spent Hogmanay at the Library apartment ourselves and it was great to be back in Glasgow at that special time of year. All sorts were going on in George Square as part of the Winterfest including a Guinness world record attempt at the largest outdoor tea dance. We didnt take part as I have 2 left feet but Glasgow did indeed achieve this accolation on a cold bright afternoon.
More to my taste was the Hogmanay bash in George Sq which was electrifying - great atmopshere and good music. Of course what was especially good was the fact that it was so easy to attend the celebrations as the apartment is only a stone's throw from George Square! It gave me an excuse to wear my kilt - though I definitely wont reveal what I was wearing under it!
The early part of 2009 sees yet more attractions in Glasgow including the Glasgow Homecoming which lasts all of 2009. For more details and for a whats on guide please visit the website at www.bookaflatinglasgow.com and download a copy.
