Persimmon Homes

Carluke

Your new home, Carluke, is the largest town in the Clyde Valley. It looks out from a plateau in the fruit growing area of Scotland over the River Clyde. While its position has made it a centre for jam-making, you need never be in a jam with commutes to Glasgow city centre taking less than 30 minutes.


Carlake also has a busy high street with a great selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. While there are the usual high street banks, chemists and supermarkets, your new home in Carluke also has some independents including a great coffee shop, bakery, pizza parlour and takeaways. There’s a children’s nursery and a choice of five primary schools and a high school. And, if you enjoy sport, the John Cumming Stadium or local leisure centre can oblige.

Living in Carluke

Days out for everyone

Your new home in the beautiful Clyde Valley has lots of perks. Aside from the gorgeous countryside and walks on your doorstep, there's the Strathclyde Loch and Country Park, which hosted watersports events in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. If you head due west to the Ayrshire coast, you’ll have sandy beaches and panoramic views across the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Arran. Or head to the city for a big night out, or a day of culture touring the museums, art galleries, places to eat and places to shop. A new build in Carluke brings the very best of Scotland to your doorstep. 

History, shopping and sport

Your new home, close to travel links

Carluke has easy access to the A721 and the A73 which link the motorway with Peebles. If you'd like a day at the coast, the A71 links to the M74 taking you from your new Carluke home, through the Ayrshire countryside to Irvine and any number of pristine sandy beaches.
