Scots Airbnb owner horrified as over 30 guests show up to seven-person booking and damage home – The Scottish Sun

A SCOTS Airbnb owner was left horrified after over 30 guests showed up with tents to a seven-person booking and damaged her home.

Sheri Murphy, 55, slammed the dozens of thoughtless visitors who flocked to Highland beauty spot Glen Etive – with cops forced to evict them last night after they initially refused to leave.

Property developer Sheri claims the selfish guests broke a bed and bench – and also dismantled mirrors from walls inside the property.

Sheri alleges the group lied about how many people were staying at the Airbnb, and dumped their tents and several belongings for the homeowners to clean up after being removed by police.

She told how her heart “sunk” when she arrived at the holiday home to see 12 motors lined up outside, with cops telling her they counted 34 people in total.

And she added that she was “shocked” upon discovering ten tents in the garden of the property – with the visitors sent packing just one day after they arrived.

Sheri told The Scottish Sun: “It’s been upsetting for us. We managed to stop what could have been a lot more damage to our house.

“We got a call to say there were ten cars in the drive. We live about an hour away from the property. Our hearts just sunk when we arrived.

“We decided to go in through the side-gate, because we didn’t want them running and hiding. That’s when we saw the tents. I certainly didn’t expect that. They hadn’t even been in the property 24 hours.

“The gentleman who booked it said he’d mentioned it to one or two people, a couple of others mentioned to other people, and it ‘got out of hand’. Those were his words.

“They tried to offer me money to stay, but I said no. They asked if the seven who’d registered could stay, but I still said no. The police told them they had to clear up.

“They dumped the tents all in a big pile and left them. We’ve been left to clear them all away. They left items of clothing like shoes and scarves.

“They’d taken mirrors off the walls and dismantled them. They broke a bed.

« They put some of my indoor furniture outdoors. There’s a bench broken, but that can be repaired.”

“My husband and his friend were down for about five hours cleaning the gardens up today.”

Sheri told how she was also concerned about the huge size of the group visiting due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

She said: “The guests came from around the Manchester and London areas, so I am a bit more wary.

“The reason I want to get it out there is so it doesn’t happen to anybody else. It was total disrespect of our house.

“We’ve been having a lot of trouble up in the Highlands with wild camping and people disrespecting the area. Glen Etive has been one of the spots that has been hit. Seeing this has fired it all up again.”

A police spokesperson said: “We received a report of a large group of people who were refusing to leave a property in Glen Etive. »

« Officers attended, spoke to those involved and the group were dispersed. »
