Location Location Location Robroyston
The suburb has its place in the history books as the place where William Wallace was captured following a betrayal by his squire Jack Short. Wallace was turned over to English forces who took him to London for execution for treason. Now a monument stands where William Wallace slept that fateful night.
With its close proximity to the M80 and M8, Robroyston is the ideal location for commuters. Cumbernauld, Stirling and Perth are easily accessed to the north, while Edinburgh is around 50 miles away and Glasgow city centre only six miles. Given its increasing popularity as a residential neighbourhood, there are plans underway for a brand new train station on the Glasgow to Cumbernauld line, which, if plans are approved, is due to open in 2020.
With views to the Campsie Hills, Robroyston is surrounded by some beautiful green spaces. Robroyston Park with its multi-use games arena and play park is great for families to enjoy a stroll at the weekend. It’s also home to a significant nature reserve which has an abundance of dragonflies in the summer and its ponds and wetlands are also feeding grounds for birds such as the grey heron. You might even sneak a little glimpse of the family of roe deer who have recently made the woodland their home.
Also nearby is the Forth and Clyde Canal which makes for a great family stroll and Huntershill Village in nearby Bishopbriggs is home to a garden centre, coffee shop and range of local retailers from a pet shop to a picture framer. There’s also a retailer park for all your daily shopping needs with an ASDA, Homebase and an old Glasgow favourite – Watt Brothers.
Into the city
If you like the hustle and bustle of the city, then Glasgow is just a short drive away, and with a great bus service, it’s easy to nip in and out for work or play. Famous for its shopping scene, Glasgow’s style mile is home to some of the UK’s best shopping, from designer fashion in Princes Square and Ingram Street to the nation’s favourite toy store – Hamleys - it’s every shopaholic's dream!
Glasgow’s nightlife is also unrivalled with a top selection of restaurants, bars, clubs and theatres so if you like a night on the town – home is just a short taxi ride away. If you are a culture vulture then there are plenty of museums and galleries to idle away the day. The Gallery of Modern Art is a particular favourite among local Glaswegians or for a more family friendly day Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum or the Riverside Museum on the waterfront both offer a brilliant day out for the kids.
If you are more of a speed demon, the Glasgow Tigers Speedway track is close. There’s motorbike racing every Sunday from March to October so plenty of opportunities to soak up the atmosphere of the city’s only racing track. Littlehill Golf Course is also close by. Designed by James Braid this course was once used as an Open qualifying course and although reasonably flat it is a great challenge if you are a beginner or an experienced golfer.
