Local information

  • Brae O' Kilmahew is positioned in the conservation village of Cardross overlooking the Firth of Clyde near Helensburgh, one of western Scotland's most desirable villages.
  • Cardross offers good access to Glasgow, with the A814, A82 and the M8 allowing a daily commute by car for many villagers. Cardross train station provides a regular rail service to the city with a scheduled journey time of about 45 minutes. Glasgow Airport is within 22 miles. To the north, the A811 leads to Stirling to join the M9 south to Edinburgh and the A9 north to Perth.
  • Cardross is a quiet village with a primary school, tennis club, bowling club and one of the finest golf courses in west central Scotland. There is also a village store and country pub.
  • Helensburgh is a larger town offering more extensive services. Named after Lady Helen Sutherland, daughter of the Duke of Sutherland and wife of Sir James Colquhoun of Luss, Helensburgh grew rapidly during Victorian times, with merchants from Glasgow able to access the city via quick rail connections. The birthplace of John Logie Baird, the inventor of television, the town now offers an excellent range of local and specialist shops, as well as supermarkets. Helensburgh is home to Hermitage Academy while Lomond School provides private schooling for day pupils and boarders.
  • On the Firth of Clyde, nearby Rhu Marina (7.5 miles) is one of Scotland's most popular marinas with excellent facilities and easy access to some of the world's most testing sailing waters. Loch Lomond is within 10 miles and offers spectacular scenery, pleasant walks, water sports and Loch Lomond Golf Club.
