Shawlands, located a mere 2 miles south of Glasgow's City centre, is regularly regarded as the central hub of Glasgow's South Side. Shawlands has carved a reputation as a vibrant cosmopolitan setting favoured by professionals and young families and offers an impressive selection of Victorian tenements and sandstone terraced properties. In tune with the prevailing demographic, the area boasts an array of bars, restaurants, coffee shops and independent retailers catering for all tastes and age groups. This coupled with excellent transport links providing rapid city centre access, has allowed Shawlands to maintain and build on its reputation as an excellent commuter base.
Living locally in Shawlands
Moving outwards from Shawlands, the South side of Glasgow extends into the highly sought after suburbs of Newlands, Pollokshields, Langside and Cathcart. Thus revealing a diverse range of family housing stock ranging from affordable semi and detached properties to some of the finest examples of classical and neo gothic villas. Acting as a peaceful haven for growing families and served with an array of local amenties and attractions, such leafy suburbs continue to expand and grow in popularity.
In line with Glasgow's Gaelic translation, 'dear green place', the Southside is particularly well served by a number of internationally renowned parks. Most notably, Pollok Country Park which houses the world famous Burrell collection and the equally impressive Queens Park which offers a delightful recreational setting. As modern lifestyles dictate, the extended area offers the opportunity to pursue multiple recreational pursuits with a number of reputable golf clubs in close proximity. Furthermore, additional leisure activities and shopping opportunities can be explored within the Silverburn and Braehead retail complexes.

Clyde were very professional and managed to get us a good price in a short space of time. The staff are all really friendly and they were able to handle any issues/queries we had promptly. We used them after a recommendation and we would be happy to recommend them to anyone else looking to sell their house.

1st class service. Everyone working in Shawlands team were all so lovely, friendly and made the sell of our flat seem so easy. Highly recommend for anyone to use their service. Actually miss my daily calls from Emma! They deserve all the success that should come their way!!!
“We were beyond impressed”
After meeting several estate agents, we chose Clyde because of their market reach. We were beyond impressed by the professional and dedicated service we received as we attempted to sell two properties simultaneously. The initial marketing was worth every penny, as our properties were presented to market at their very best. The team in the Shawlands office were not only extremely conscientious and tireless in chasing up on viewers, but in the final stages we also found the sales negotiator offered invaluable advice and guidance at this stressful time. Overall we were delighted with our choice of Clyde as our estate agent and would choose them again without hesitation.
