  • Hi Matt, See the link below. Glasgow has the classic second-city complex — locked in a never-ending comparison with its more popular and tourist-accessible sibling, Edinburgh, less than 50 miles away. But give Glasgow a little extra attention, and you will find that, like the famously inscrutable dialect of its residents, this understatedly stylish city is worth deciphering. With its mix of modern and classic architecture, plentiful cultural and culinary options, shopping districts and large green spaces, the city holds an appeal for both civic-minded locals and sophisticated travelers who find discovering a place is half the fun.

  • It's very nice. I lived in East Kilbrdie for many years and moved to Glasgow to be near to University! It has lots to do for all age groups i.e. shopping, sites, museums etc. There are also lovely properties available etc to rent and buy. I rent my flat in the south side from TLC they have always got new properties to suit all budgets in and around Glasgow city centre.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
