Buying in Cathcart
Cathcart is a popular area in the southside of the city of Glasgow. Cathcart is sometimes seen as more of an urban village with its own river, great parks, nice houses, and old Victorian architecture, as well as a plethora of amenities and good transport links practically on the doorstep of many residents. It is popular with a whole cross-section of peoples, from students to young professionals, families, and older generations, each from many different backgrounds and cultures. In the past it has been voted one of Scotland’s most desirable areas.
Cathcart was once a parish of its own that overlapped Renfrewshire and Lanarkshire but has since been subsumed by Glasgow properly as the city expanded. Today it is a popular part of the southside of the city, alongside nearby areas of Battlefield, Mount Florida, King’s Park, Muirend and Newlands, often compared to parts of the also popular West End.
Being so close to the city centre has enhanced Cathcart’s popularity generally, but particularly with students and young professionals. By car the city centre is about 20 minutes away, but most commuters would probably go for the train from Cathcart station into Glasgow central, taking just 15 minutes. Kings Park station is another option for residents. Bus services are generally frequent and deliver passengers into the city centre in about 30 minutes.
Features of the area include the White Cart Water, once used to power the areas cotton mills, and Snuff Mill Bridge – a lovely and well-preserved bridge dating from 1624 – built over the river. Next to the bridge is Lindsay House, an imposing tenement block predating most of Glasgow’s better eponymous tenements. There’s also the expansive Linn Park, the second largest in the city with waterfalls, parkland, and trees in abundance. Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s Holmwood House (61-63 Netherlee Road) is yet another attraction of the area. It is a category A-listed building owned by the National Trust for Scotland.
As for other amenities and things to do, Cathcart is awash with local independent businesses as well as plenty of eateries from cafes to bakeries to restaurants and pubs on most residents’ doorsteps. Residents can also take advantage of all that Glasgow has to offer.
In terms of local schooling, being an urban area there are several nearby schools. These are the Lady of the Annunciation Primary, St. Fillan’s Primary, Merrylee Primary. Pupils of secondary school age typically attend Kings Park Secondary, Hillpark Secondary, or Holyrood Secondary School. The private school The Glasgow Academy is also nearby.
In October 2023, property in Cathcart stood at an average value of £212,724. There’s a mix of housing types in the area: from large sandstone houses and flats to more modern housing developments. Many people also rent in the area.
