Houses for sale in Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire

The historic town of Dumbarton lies on the north bank of the River Clyde, at the point where the River Leven flows into the Clyde estuary.

Once the capital of the ancient kingdom of Strathclyde, it is famous for the historic Dumbarton Castle and the striking surrounding rock formations, guarding the mouth of the Leven.

Glasgow is just a 15-mile drive away, or a 30-minute train journey, which means Scotland’s best choice of restaurants, shopping and leisure facilities is on your doorstep. Meanwhile, several supermarkets in the town means shopping for supplies is easy.

Schools include Dumbarton Academy, a strong secondary school with a focus on good outcomes for young people in the area. The one other secondary school in the town, Our Lady & St Patrick's High School, is rated the best in the West Dunbartonshire area, giving children good options.

As well as the castle, other landmarks to explore around the town include Levengrove Park and the dramatic Overtoun House and estate, which is open to the public. Nearby are the Kilpatrick Hills, which include The Slack mountain, and are regularly described as one of the most stunning places to go for hikers.

Dunbarton sits amongst other small towns and villages along the north bank of the Clyde, which continue up to the southern bank of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. This idyllic lake makes the ideal daytime getaway, and gives Dunbarton the perfect balance between proximity to the action of Glasgow and the peace of rural Scotland.
