My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
It is a ten minute drive from Loch Lomond, twenty minute drive from Glasgow Airport, and a forty minute drive from Glasgow city centre.
Uppa Close is a one bedroom first-floor flat in a refurbished 1950s tenement block. It sits on its own dead-end street adjacent to the main road, with open aspects to the front and rear. Free parking is usually available directly across the road from the flat - you will certainly get a space nearby. Uppa Close is in a residential area, but a short drive or bus journey, or two stops on the train, takes you to the heart of Balloch and its nightlife.
The bedroom has two single beds, which I can push together and provide a king size quilt for. The living room has a metal frame pull out sofa bed, which is fine for two light adults.
The flat has gas central heating, with radiators in all rooms. Water is heated by a combi boiler. The kitchen has an electric cooker, microwave oven and toaster. There is a washing machine in the kitchen, but no tumble dryer. An airing rack is provided. You may also hang your washing on the communal clothes line in the back yard, at your own risk.
Uppa Close has a small tv, wifi, and dvd player. There is a selection of dvds, books and board games.
We aim to meet your basic accommodation needs in a comfortable and eco-friendly way, from pre-loved furniture to recycled toilet paper to a completely green energy supplier.
We have a social media page (not the tweeting one, the other one!) which often has useful information about the area. Feel free to contribute to it. As a visitor, you might have holiday tips which us locals miss - drop in and share your expertise! (I'm not allowed to post web links, but if you search for Uppa Close you'll find us.)

You have access to the entire flat (I don't live on site), and to the communal back yard, which has a small patch of grass and a washing line.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I'll meet you at the beginning of your stay, to hand over the keys and show you round. I live a twenty minute drive away: get in touch if you need anything.
- Please give an indication of your expected arrival time. Check in is between 4pm and 10pm but I don't live on site: I have to travel to meet you. Thanks!
- Please leave the flat clean and tidy. I do everything myself, and I only have a few hours between guests. I always clean the whole flat anyway, but it's much easier if the place isn't dirty!
- There are five other flats on Uppa Close's common stair, so please try to be quiet between 10pm and 7am.
I'm a walker, a writer, and a nature freak.
Our beautiful world makes me happy - but the way we treat it makes me sad...
