Darnley is one of Glasgow’s southwest suburbs, and whilst it’s very much a part of this great city, it’s also midway between two of the local country parks – Pollok Country Park and the Dams to Darnley Country Park. This well-established family-friendly residential area is just 7 miles from the city centre, and the nearby M77 will get you there in no time – you can join it at Junction 3. Darnley has a local train station too, Priesthill & Darnley, on the Kennishead Road. Regular trains into Glasgow Central take just over 15 minutes. A new home here will be well-connected and will have a really good range of local shops and services – including Scotland’s flagship Sainsbury’s, the Silverburn Shopping Centre and the Darnley Retail Park. However, it’s being a part of Glasgow that will make all the difference. This amazing creative city is packed with things to do, whether you’re into history, culture or world food.
Country Parks are an integral feature of today’s large city landscapes and Darnley is in the great position of having two close by. The Pollok Country Park is Glasgow’s largest so it’s a local asset for Darnley’s residents. The Dams to Darnley Country Park includes farmland, woodland and several reservoirs.
The M77 runs right past Darnley and is an excellent link with the M8 and M74. As well as taking you into Glasgow, the M77 takes you down to Kilmarnock and from there you can reach the towns of the Ayrshire coast. Train and bus services are well provided for in Darnley which is why it’s a popular suburb for commuters, and Glasgow Airport is only 7 miles away.
Darnley’s local primary and secondary schools mean that your children don’t have to go far – another reason why this area is popular with families. Another local asset is the Darnley Community Educational Centre which offers a wide range of adult education courses and training opportunities.
