With the number of holiday lets rising by 40% in three years we’ve taken a look at some of the nicest cheap stays near Glasgow
The summer holidays are fast approaching and the warmer weather means it’s the perfect time for a staycation.
In the UK the number of holiday lets has risen by 40% in three years, according to BBC analysis of council figures.
This comes as Airbnb has permanently banned parties and events happening at homes on its platform.
