Located in one of Renfrewshire’s most popular neighbourhoods due to its combination of country charm and urban convenience, the enchanting commuter village of Bishopton is highly regarded for its sense of community, and the new Dargavel Village within its heart is ideally placed to make the most of its attractions – this is a wonderful place to call home.
Within Bishopton itself, there is already a Co-op, rugby, tennis and football clubs and a Bank of Scotland as well as pubs and taverns; it will soon also benefit from tremendous new purpose-built facilities including a primary school, community centre, library and leisure centre. The Dargavel Village developments will combine to enhance all these facilities exponentially by providing a master-planned community of new homes and associated infrastructure, which includes new road links from the A8, new Bishopton junction from the M8, and retail and employment uses, with generous open spaces allocated to parks and woodland walks.
Being just 18 minutes’ away by car from Braehead, shopping and leisure opportunities are abound on Dargavel Village’s doorstep. With Erskine Bridge being less than 4 miles away, north Glasgow and the routes to Loch Lomond are equally convenient.
Being just 18 minutes’ away by car from Braehead – which was awarded town centre status in 2014 giving a shot in the arm to plans for a £200m mixed-use development – and even closer to Scotland’s most important airport - Glasgow International, which is in the throes of a 30-years’ expansion plan although it already employs more people and generates nearly £200 million annually for the economy (more than any other airport in Scotland) - employment, shopping and leisure opportunities abound on Dargavel Village’s doorstep.
Excellent schools are located in and around Bishopton with the local non-denominational primary school being located within the village and well-regarded Park Mains and Trinity High schools and St John Boscoe RC primary schools located in nearby Erskine.
Dargavel Village is within walking distance of the ‘park and ride’ railway station, providing easy access to Glasgow city centre in 16 minutes. Glasgow Airport is a 10 minute drive away, as is the M8 (leading to Glasgow and Greenock) and the Erskine Bridge (gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs). There are new M8 links into Bishopton currently being built. Glasgow city centre is a 26 minute drive away and there are frequent trains from Bishopton train station to Glasgow central station, which take 25 minutes.
