Lennoxtown is a peaceful place to live on the edge of the stunningly beautiful Campsie Fells. It has all the usual shops, GP, library services, but with the added bonus of breathtaking views. From your new build, you can enjoy fantastic outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling and exploring nearby trails straight from the town.

Celtic Football Club chose Lennoxtown to build their training ground in 2007. Just west of town, close to Lennox Castle, you’ll find the purpose built facility including three grass UEFA match-size pitches, a full-size, all-weather artificial pitch – and even under soil heating. The team also shares the facilities with younger amateur teams in the area.

The A89 runs through the town linking Strathblane and Milton of Campsie, where you can pick up the B757 to Kirkintilloch. The M80 becomes the M8 through Glasgow, getting you to Glasgow Airport, just over 20 miles away, in about half an hour. The nearest train stations are at Milngavie, Lenzie and Bishopbriggs, a useful option for commuting to central Glasgow.
