Bishopton

When the Romans came, they built forts all along the Antonine Wall, ending up at Bishopton. Today, there are still reminders of a rich historical past including the Roman causeway towards Dumbuck Hill and the Armistice Monument, but Bishopton is very much forward looking.

Earmarked as a place that will double in size in the coming years, Bishopton currently has two primary schools with a third planned for 2027, it has a new library, leisure centre and community centre. New developments have given the village new road links making it easy to join to the M8 for a 20 minute commute to Glasgow - or to use the new park and ride and journey into the city by train in just 25 minutes. Lots of investment has been ploughed into your new home in Bishopton, and yet there is still lots more to come. So, if you're looking for a new house on the coast, in a relaxed village with great transport links into the city, a new build in Bishopton is the ideal place to call home.
