Known to many as a picturesque holiday town, Helensburgh is located west of Glasgow on the River Clyde and dates back to the 18th century.
Steeped in history, the well renowned Hill House is recognised as one of the finest masterpieces of the internationally famous Scots architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
With an array of pretty buildings, elegant tree-lined streets and its attractive parks and promenade, there’s a lot to like about Helensburgh – and a lot going on.
Touristic Appeal to Boost Property Market
For many, escaping city life and moving to an area such as Helensburgh is a lifelong dream. But some fear the move due to property values. However, in the case of Helensburgh, it could be said that the area could soon receive a boost. According to its local newspaper, The Helensburgh Advertiser, more than 120 of the world’s top travel trade companies have confirmed the area as a serious player on their itineraries.
When moving to a new area, one of the major questions everyone wants to know is – what are the people like? Well, if this news story is anything to go – the people of Helensburgh are an example to live by.
As recently reported, a local man is set to run the West Highland Way to raise money for charity. The 33-year-old will run the 95 mile West Highland Way in June to raise money for RNIB, a blind charity.
