10 good reasons to holiday in Glasgow & The Clyde Valley

We mentioned on social media last week that we had just launched a new region in Scotland, Glasgow & The Clyde Valley, and that we have five fabulous new properties there to showcase.   Our five first properties in this region are all set on the beautifully scenic Kilpatrick Hills and have stunning views out over the River Clyde and Erskine Bridge.

So here are ten good reasons to visit this part of the world:

1. When it comes to Glasgow, don’t think Trainspotting, think style and culture.  Bursting with art galleries, museums and exceptional architecture.

2. The Clyde Valley Tourist Route - a 42 mile driving route through spectacular scenery.

4. Finlaystone Country Estate – a private estate with spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde.

5. Prestwick Beach – a long sandy beach with views of the Isle of Arran.
