East Renfrewshire is one of Glasgow’s most sought after areas in which to live, especially for those with children. East Renfrewshire has the highest standard of local amenities including boutique shops, restaurants, bars, sports clubs, local recreational parks, banks, libraries, supermarkets and much more.

The real pull for residents is the local schools, with the high-achieving and well respected Mearns Castle High School, Williamwood High School, Eastwood High School, Mearns Primary School, Kirkhill Primary School, Belmont School and numerous private nurseries located within the area.

Located just 9 miles from Glasgow City Centre, there are excellent commuter routes, which also provide 30-minute journey times to both Glasgow and Prestwick international airports. There are also regular train and bus services to Glasgow, East Kilbride and the Ayrshire coast.

Despite the looming Brexit, we have been especially busy over the last month and this is set to continue as demand continues to outstrip supply. Here are a few highlights:
