They are there to give buyers a solid reckoning of all the important details offering peace of mind for the buyer and the seller alike.

Buying in Galston

Galston is a town of roughly 4,700 residents in the beautiful Irvine Valley in East Ayrshire, just 4 miles from Kilmarnock, 12 miles from Irvine and 2 miles from Newmilns. The town as we know it today took shape when coal mining and textile manufacturing brought prosperity and people to the area in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Galston today is primarily a commuter town for residents working in Kilmarnock, Ayr, Glasgow, and other nearby settlements, though many are also employed in engineering nearby. Luckily for commuters, transport links are good with the A71 trunk road running past the northern edge of the town offering fast travel into Kilmarnock. The A71 also allows commuters easy connection to the A76 where they can travel northwards to Glasgow or southwards to Prestwick and Ayr. The town has no railway station of its own, though the nearest is in Kilmarnock just a short journey away. There are several bus services offering travel into Kilmarnock as well as other settlements nearby.

In terms of local amenities and things to do, the town has the usual array of services and shops you’d expect in a town of its size. Residents certainly benefit from proximity to Kilmarnock however, which offers far more choice of things to do. Loudoun Gowf Club though, can be found to the east of the town, and offers terrific views and challenging play for golfers at every skill level. The Irvine Valley itself offers fantastic opportunities for residents to get out and explore the nearby countryside with some excellent walking paths and trails.

As for local schooling then, Galston Primary and St. Sophias Primary are the two local primary schools. The local secondary school is Loudon Academy which also welcomes pupils from smaller settlements nearby.

In January 2024, property in Galston stood at an average value of £140,886. Over the last 12 months, different property types have had different average prices. Detached properties sold for £218,970, semi-detached £167,354, terraced £104,500, and flats £56,426.
