Kilmacolm – Country Commuter Heaven with a Splash of Cool

The Times Best Places to Live – Kilmacolm

Kilmacolm has been named as one of the best places to live in Scotland, seen as country commuter heaven with a splash of cool.

Located in suburban Renfrewshire, Kilmacolm is a popular place for families to live outside of Glasgow. In fact, it’s one of the most popular moves from the lively and trendy West End, beating Giffnock and Newton Mearns. 

The Times noted that in Kilmacolm everything is a cut above the norm including its independent shops, bars and eateries. For those who enjoy the great outdoors, there’s bike riding around Knapps Loch, cricket or bowls in the immaculate Birkmyre Park, tennis, golf and rugby. The friendly, lively community village hall provides actives for singletons and families alike. What’s more, with families having lived there for generations, there’s a real sense of community pride and friendliness. 

Kilmacolm is just a 30 minute commute into Glasgow’s City Centre by car and is just 15 minutes from Glasgow Airport. 

There is a primary school in the village along with the high-achieving independent co-ed secondary school, St Columba’s or Port Glasgow High School is just a 10 minute bus ride.
