Key dates for your diary

Bearsden is a beautiful Scottish suburb, rich with heritage and historical charm as well as every modern convenience you may require. Along with its tree-lined streets and impressive collection of churches, this leafy town features the remnants of a Roman bath and Antonine Wall. These historic gems hark back to the days of Roman occupation – some of Bearsden’s most notable residents.
The majority of activity takes place at Bearsden Cross, with the main shopping area lying just beyond. Here, there is a selection of restaurants and cafes, plus a post office, hairdressers, and a handful of independent shops. Slightly further afield you can find Bearsden Railway Station, which operates a quarterly-hour service to Glasgow. Bearsden also offers numerous bus routes, which make larger supermarkets and shops easily accessible.
One of Bearsden’s major features is, undoubtedly, its golf offering. An impressive five courses lay in the vicinity, including one of the world’s oldest clubs, the Glasgow Golf Club, which was founded in 1787. It’s no surprise that Bearsden is a firm favourite amongst golfers. And for those that prefer something a little livelier, you can look forward to a particularly special event that descends every spring and summer; in keeping with Scottish tradition, Bearsden hosts the annual Highland Games!
Bearsden is also home to the Kilmardinny Loch Nature Reserve, which includes a loch and woodlands. Ideal for walking, bird watching and photography, Kilmardinny is a wonderful spot for enjoying the great outdoors and everything it has to offer. It’s also a prime place for an outing when family comes to visit, especially for the little ones: the Loch plays host to several Gruffalo sculptures, placed in honour of author Julia Donaldson, who lives nearby.
With its idyllic location, friendly character and numerous leisure activities, it’s no surprise that Bearsden is one of Scotland’s most desirable suburbs.
