Buying in Blantyre
Blantyre is a town in South Lanarkshire with a population of roughly 17,000 people. It’s approximately eight miles from Glasgow City Centre and borders other South Lanarkshire towns of Cambuslang, Uddingston, Bothwell, Hamilton and East Kilbride.
Blantyre was the birthplace of David Livingstone, the 19th-century explorer and missionary, and because of Livingstone's work, the second-largest city in Malawi is named after the town. While part of the modern town, High Blantyre is still referred to specifically and is found to the east and south of Burnbrae Road. It is thought to be the area of earliest settlement, with a Bronze Age village nearby.
Blantyre previously had a large mining community clustered around several pits which still exist as distinct communities within the town. Today the town is primarily a commuter town for residents working in the nearby towns and Glasgow City Centre. It has good transport links, through its own railway station on the Argyle Line, running to Glasgow Central Station, South Lanarkshire, and West Dunbartonshire. Regular buses run through the town, and not far are connections to the M74 motorway and East Kilbride Expressway.
In terms of local amenities, Blantyre has a local leisure centre with pool and gym, and the Clydeview Shopping Centre with a large Asda supermarket. Residents are close enough to benefit from amenities in the larger towns of Cambuslang and Hamilton too and indeed wider area. The David Livingston Centre is in Blantyre and is a museum dedicated to the life and work of the explorer and missionary himself. It was developed in Shuttle Row, the birthplace of Livingston, containing a series of category A listed buildings and tenements, and historic grounds. Redlees Park offers a place to walk, run and dog walk nearby. An Anti-aircraft battery during World War 2, and associated camp for military personnel was built here on the open land off the Blantyre Farm Road. The camp was used as emergency accommodation after the conflict, but the huts were later demolished. However, some of the AA battery buildings survived into the 21st century and were incorporated into Redlees Urban Park.
In terms of local schooling, Blantyre has five primary schools: St. Blane’s, St. Joseph’s, High Blantyre, David Livingston Memorial, and Auchinraith Primary, and two secondary schools: Calderside Academy, and John Ogilvie High School.
House prices in Blantyre stand at an average of £149,642 as of November 2020. This is a rise of 2.54% in the last three months (since August 2020) and rise of 3.49% since November 2019. Modern three to four-bedroom developments from Avant Homes are currently in development at Greenhall Village in High Blantyre. Likewise, there are Miller, Persimmon, and Taylor Wimpey developments in nearby Newton and Cambuslang presently.
