About the neighbourhood
Located in a luxury garden suburb, 20 minutes drive from both Loch Lomond and Glasgow city centre or a 1 minute walk to an abundance of local amenities including independent shops: crafts, delis & grocery stores all within the traffic-free village centre. Easy and pretty walks via West Highland Way to nearby Mugdock Country Park and around Milngavie Reservoir. [Milngavie hosts the water reservoir for Glasgow (with its beautiful walkway), and is within easy range of Loch Lomond & Loch Katrine.] Guests are often rewarded with stunning panoramic views, especially sunsets.
Getting around
Milngavie itself is a lovely pedestrianised village 6 miles from the centre of Glasgow. What makes it such a most desirable area is that it sits on the edge of beautiful countryside yet has the benefit of being well connected to other parts of Scotland by road and rail. There are 4 trains each hour into Glasgow city centre, each taking between 20-25 minutes. The town is also close to an abundance of transport links - eg. ROAD (M8, M74, M77, M9), plentiful rail connections (eg. direct train to/from Edinburgh), airports (GLA/EDI) and ferry terminals (eg. Greenock/Gourock/Stranrar).
