Persimmon Homes


Cleland is a small town outside of Glasgow with a proud mining heritage and a close-knit community. Moving here will give you a new home surrounded by beautiful countryside, with pleasantly wide streets, green spaces and well-spaced properties - making it ideal if you’re moving out of the city in search of more space.

The town itself has a small population, but is well catered for with amenities and shops. There’s a good choice of nursery, primary and nearby secondary schools, plus you can shop local with a parade of independent shops including two convenience stores, chemist, butchers, barbers and takeaways. Your new home in Cleland is perfect for commuting too, with Glasgow taking around 28 minutes drive via the M8 – and the same time via ScotRail from the local train station. Motherwell (4 miles), Livingston (23 miles) and Edinburgh (36 miles) are all nearby.

Living in Cleland

Travel and transport from your home

Choosing a new home in Cleland gives you location, location, location. Cleland is around 17 miles from Glasgow and about 35 miles from Edinburgh - but direct links via the superfast M8 motorway makes commuting to either city a breeze. The A71 through Newmains, a short distance south of Cleland, is the cross-country link to the M74, or in the opposite direction offers a more scenic route to the Capital. Your new build in Cleland is well served by ScotRail getting you into Glasgow Central in under 30 minutes and to Edinburgh in about an hour. The new Persimmon development in Cleland is between Glasgow Airport (25 miles) and Edinburgh Airport (28 miles), so from your new home in Cleland you can get the pick of the holiday deals.

Your new home in the heart of the community

Local services and shops include two convenience stores, a good local butcher, a Post Office, a pharmacy and several takeaways. There’s a library, and two primary schools; St Mary’s and Cleland Primary. For older children, the local schools are Taylor High School in New Stevenston and Motherwell and Coltness High School near Wishaw. For golfers, there’s the Dalziel Park Golf Club and the Wishaw Golf Club, and a little further away the Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility is a world-class sports centre where all ages and all levels of skill are welcome. The Strathclyde Country Park, just five miles from your new house, covers nearly 1,000 acres of countryside, with family activities, adventure playgrounds, a water sports centre and much more.

A world at your feet

Your new home in Cleland gives you easy access to the bright lights of Scotland's two most populous cities. Whether you're looking for clubs and bars, historic sites, galleries and museums, or you simply want to shop till you drop at every high street brand, both cities offer you every cuisine, activity and entertainment you could wish for.
