Springvale, Cardross, Dunbartonshire

Cardross is a conservation village on the edge of the Highlands to the north of the Firth of Clyde, near Helensburgh. The area is rich in history with Cardross being the former home of Robert the Bruce.

There is plenty to explore in the area and a good place to walk is 2 miles away at Ardmore point with unique rock formations, sea cliffs, fishing and is a notable bird watching area. Also worth a visit is Dumbarton Castle and Rock, 5 miles away. Dumbarton Castle has a longer recorded history than any other castle in Britain! Over the centuries the castle has acted as a royal residence and a military stronghold. Set between the twin peaked volcanic plug of Dumbarton Rock the castle is now in the care of Historic Scotland.

Cardross has its own golf course, established 120 years ago, as well as a bowling, tennis and football club. Local attractions include Ardardan Estate Working Farm with a nursery and tea room and nearby Geilston Garden. Looked after by the National Trust for Scotland, Geilston is a delightful garden and is typical of the small country estates on the banks of the Clyde purchased by merchants and industrialists in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is very close - it's just 6 miles to Balloch on the south shore of the loch. This beautiful area has so much to offer, both on and off the water. Its inland waters are famous as one of the finest water sports venues in Scotland. The area is ideal for walkers and cyclists of all abilities and boasts a magnificent diversity of scenery with dramatic peaks, waterfalls, hidden caves, and mysterious, forest-covered slopes. Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Stirling are all easily reached for a day out. Walk from the house and stunning views as below:
