Bearsden remains one of Glasgow’s premier residential districts and it is a delightful place in which to reside, situated on the northerly fringe of the city. There is an excellent range of shops, services and amenities with regular bus services and importantly, a train station with four trains an hour into Glasgow’s west end and city centre. Just to the north lies some of Scotland’s best scenery including The Campsie Fells and within half an hour, the drama of the Loch Lomond and Trossach’s National Park.
The Thorn district in Old Bearsden is, without question, one of the most sought after locations and Thorn Road one of its premier addresses. Nearby, is the local tennis club, golf course and Thorn Park and, just down the road, Bearsden Cross which offers an excellent selection of shops, including a Marks & Spencer’s food hall, quality restaurants, bars, banks and a Post Office. The local primary school (Bearsden Primary) is at Bearsden Cross with secondary provision at the superb facilities of Bearsden Academy at Courthill. The High School of Glasgow Junior School is a couple of roads away on Ledcameroch Road.
