Located on Nitshill Road, it provides regular trains to Glasgow Central, with journey times of around 17 minutes. Nitshill station handles over 90,000 passenger movements on an annual basis.

The area is a good one for parents seeking houses to rent in Glasgow, with a number of schools to be found nearby.

The right property in the right place for the right price

The southern suburbs of Glasgow offer an eclectic selection of property types, so it's easy to shop around in order to track down the home that matches your needs.

To the north of the neighbourhood you'll find the tranquil beauty of Househill Park, which features picturesque walks along the banks of Levern Water. This is a region that plays host to plenty of peaceful bolt-holes, including Dams to Darnley Country Park to the south and Pollokshaws Country Park to the north-east. Rouken Glen, in nearby Giffnock, is also perfect for those seeking a little sanctuary.

There are several healthcare facilities in the area, such as Braidcraft Medical Centre in Braidcraft Road, Thornliebank Health Centre in Kennishead Road and in nearby Giffnock there is a doctor's surgery in Drumby Crescent. Several hospitals are within easy reach of Nitshill, including the New Victoria Hospital, which is located to the north of the neighbourhood in Grange Road.

Staying in or going out? Either choice is a good one

A night out in the centre of Glasgow is easy thanks to the simplicity of the public transport network, but it's worth noting that several bars and restaurants are to be found in and around Nitshill.

It also offers links to the rest of Scotland's motorway network.

If you're living in Priesthill, Nitshill or any other southern suburb of Glasgow, you will already be aware of the fact that many local homes are located in quiet cul-de-sacs.
