House in East Kilbride, Glasgow, Great Britain

Greetings Intervac Friends!

Our home is in the process of being re-decorated and our children are much older now - we will upload new pictures when we get round to it!

We have a spacious 4 bedroom family house in a quiet cul-de-sac. There is a double bed in 3 of the bedrooms and a single bed in the fourth bedroom. Downstairs, we have a living room, study, kitchen, toilet and a snug area with SmartTV, Wii and games etc. Outside in the back garden, we have a ground level trampoline, patio, barbeque, fire-pit and patio-heater which we enjoy in the summer/autumn months. We have bikes and outside games, you can enjoy and there are lots of country bicycle routes close by. We are less than 5 minutes walk from a large supermarket, small local shops, pubs and restaurants.

We have a very frequent public transport links to East Kilbride Town Centre (10 minutes by bus), Glasgow city centre (40 minutes by bus) and surrounding areas. Our train station has a very frequent service and takes you to the centre of Glasgow in 25-30 minutes. From there, you can connect to many areas of the country. We also offer a car exchange for additional flexibility.
We have house swapped the last 10 summers, twice in France, four times in the Spanish mainland, Majorca, Italy, England and Slovenia and we have been hosted in the Bulgarian mountains by a delightful Macedonian family. Each swap has been wonderful! and our exchange partners have all thoroughly enjoyed Scotland and commented on the very warm welcome they have received in our picturesque country.
There are so many things to do in East Kilbride and the surrounding areas that I have inserted a lot of web links below for you to peruse. I can assure you that children will not be bored! Ours also have lots of DVD's, Wii games, toys and sports equipment. 
Here I've listed some web links for places of interest that children may be particularly keen on.
