Pollokshaws

Pollokshaws has been enjoying a significant regeneration in recent years replacing 1960s housing with beautiful new developments in-keeping with the Victorian legacy of the borough. Located to the south of Glasgow city centre, this lovely leafy suburb has bags of character and is the perfect place to buy a new home. 

There are plenty of architechtural gems to add to the red sandstone tenaments, clock tower and quirky round toll house. Aside from having the largest municipal park in Glasgow, complete with a bowling club, the country park also contains the Burrell Collection - a bespoke gallery displaying decorative arts, tapestries and glass. If you ever feel the need to shop or have a big night out, head north, over the River Clyde and into Glasgow town centre via the M77 - it takes just 15 minutes.
