Buy a retirement home on the doorstep of Scotland's largest city

Glasgow's a city that's renowned for its world-class art galleries and remarkable architecture. From the medieval Provand's Lordship to the 1930s-era Pollok House, there are plenty of historic attractions to explore. There's also a wide range of museums and galleries to discover, such as the Gallery of Modern Art or the Riverside Museum, winner of the European Museum of the Year award.

You can take a stroll along the Clyde River, which runs all the way through the city, or take a tour through one of the many famous parks and gardens dotted around Glasgow, such as Kelingrove Park or Glasgow Green. With over 90 country parks and gardens to admire across the region, it's no wonder that the name ‘Glasgow’ means ‘dear green place’!

Start a new adventure in a thriving, urban centre

Whether you're looking for your favourite brands or quirky boutique stores, you'll find all kinds of shops and restaurants around the city. The Merchant City district hosts an array of designer stores and stylish cafés, and the Forge Market – the largest indoor market in Scotland – has more than 180 different stalls selling just about every kind of thing you'd need.

And as you'd expect from such a large city, there are plenty of exciting events and festivals throughout the year, such as the Glasgow Film Festival, the cultural West End Festival, or the Piping Live! Festival, where over 200 bands come together to perform traditional music. With so much going on all over the area, Glasgow could be a perfect place to continue your busy lifestyle into retirement.

Experience the beauty of rural Scotland

Beyond the city borders, there are huge expanses of breathtaking landscapes within easy reach. It's less than 30 miles from the city centre to Clyde Muirshiel, Scotland's largest regional park, where you can spot rare wildlife, take sailing courses, or even hire a barbecue site for when your family comes to visit.

On the other side of Glasgow, and just a few miles from the centre, you'll find the Seven Lochs Wetland Park, an area that includes seven lochs, five local nature reserves and miles of scenic walking and cycling routes. It's also an area that's undergoing a large-scale, long-term development, which means there are plenty of exciting opportunities for nature enthusiasts to get involved in planting wild flowers and tidying up the woodland.

If you like the idea of a place that balances life in a busy city with beautiful landscapes, have a look at some of our impressive retirement homes around Glasgow.
