Buying in Stepps
Stepps, North Lanarkshire, is a small residential commuter settlement of roughly 7,500 people. While officially classified as North Lanarkshire, many would think it is in Glasgow due to its location and proximity at the north-eastern outskirts of the city. The town retains a somewhat historic heart around its church in Whitehill Avenue and many fine examples of Victorian and Edwardian housing.
Because of its location, and excellent transport links, it serves mainly as a commuter area for workers in Glasgow. The town’s railway station connects directly to Glasgow Queen Street Station and the travel time is under 20 minutes. The railway line also offers a direct connection to Edinburgh Waverly and travel time is just over an hour. Buses are regular and offer easy travel into Glasgow. For car users, the town has an array of choices for routes. Stepps is bisected by the A80 which is a main route into the city, but it also offers connections slightly further away to the M80, which also connects a little further away again to the M80 and M73 motorways, offering easy to reach routes for travel all over Scotland and beyond.
In terms of local amenities and things to do, residents benefit immensely from travel links and proximity to Glasgow, meaning many of the city’s attractions, leisure and retail options are practically on its doorstep, or just a short drive away. Likewise, out of town options like the Glasgow Fort Retail Park are also within easy reach. However, Stepps does have some of its own to speak of. The new Seven Lochs Wetland Park is a great place to enjoy some scenic views and nature, and there are views of the Campsies and Loch Lomond Hills too. A Bannatyne’s Health Club can be found in the town, and there’s also a couple of popular local hotels: the Garfield House Hotel and Premier Inn, both on Cumbernauld Road. Just a short drive away is the Crow Wood Hotel, Spa Resort and Golf Club. There’s also a lawn tennis club.
Stepps has two primary schools; Stepps Primary School and St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Primary School. The nearby local high schools are Chryston High School and Our Lady’s High School in Cumbernauld.
