About the neighbourhood
Cardross has its own golf course, established 120 years ago, as well as a bowling, tennis and football club. Local attractions include Ardardan Estate Working Farm with a nursery and tea room and nearby Geilston Garden. Looked after by the National Trust for Scotland, Geilston is a delightful garden and is typical of the small country estates on the banks of the Clyde purchased by merchants and industrialists in the 18th and 19th centuries. Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is very close - its just 6 miles to Balloch on the south shore of the loch. This beautiful area has so much to offer, both on and off the water. Easy access to Helensburgh, Cardross , Carrick and world famous Loch Lomond Golf Club.
Getting around
There are some really nice walks and you can leave directly from the house. Either along the beach path by the railway station or into the village. Go down to the Firth of Clyde Cardross beach and mudflats. At low tide with boots or wellingtons you can walk a long way out. There is an abundance of birdlife and now the shipyards are long gone the sea water is clean. Take the train (every 30 mins) into Glasgow or Edinburgh. Its usually pretty quiet and a nice journey. Take the train to Helensburgh which is a very Scottish Victorian town and explore the many charity shops or walk along the promenade. Take the car to the Gareloch or Balloch, which is by Loch Lomond. Tale a walk around village. People will acknowledge you as you walk by.
