Continuing our series focusing on some of our fabulous locations across the country, our hotspot this week is the home of our Keeper’s Gate development – Uddingston near Glasgow.

Ideally located on the outskirts of Glasgow, Keeper’s Gate is nestled between two of Scotland’s largest arterial routes, the M8 and the M74. Built on the former Glasgow Zoo site, this development is not new to the Miller Homes portfolio having consistently delivered high quality homes for the past decade.

The latest phase saw the launch of new showhome, The Leader, a desirable five bedroom property that is so popular potential buyers camped out the night before (in the January cold!) to secure their ideal home.

Keeper’s Gate’s central location makes this development ideal for growing families. There are several schools in the area including Uddingston Grammar and the fee-paying Hamilton College which accommodates pupils aged 3 to 18.

Six miles along the M8 is the popular Glasgow Fort, housing well known stores, several restaurants and a multi-screen Vue cinema. For something more central and in the buzz of Glasgow’s city centre, the Buchanan Galleries are perfect for the avid shopaholic, as are the surrounding streets, all bursting with a variety of shops.

For sports fans, Glasgow is the place to be this summer! The XX Commonwealth Games are coming to Scotland from July 23rd to August 3rd and will bring the world’s attention to the city for this great sporting spectacle. The athlete’s village will be situated in the east end of Glasgow and is sure to bring a fantastic buzz to the area.

As with anywhere in Scotland, golf courses are within easy reach. Bothwell Castle Golf Club, Strathclyde Park Golf Centre and Hamilton Golf Club are only a short journey away.

If golf isn’t your sport, nearby is Hamilton Park Racecourse which has the capacity to hold a variety of events including weddings, exhibitions and of course fabulous race days. It’s perfect for a day out as the facilities include a number of dining areas, children’s play park and accessible public parking.

Sitting on the River Clyde and surrounding Strathclyde Loch is Strathclyde Country Park, a great place to take the kids to burn off some extra energy.
