Scotland’s biggest city is home to some amazing properties. Like any major city, there are areas ripe for investment. If you want to start your own property portfolio for Glasgow, here are some of the best Glasgow neighbourhoods you can invest in.

Thornwood

Right between Partick and Whiteinch, this corner of the West End is packed with opportunities. You have access to all the amenities of Partick while enjoying life in a slightly quieter district. The University of Glasgow is within walking distance so a buy-to-let in this area might be a perfect way to tap into the lucrative student market. With links to both Partick and Hyndland stations, you could also attract a professional tenant.

Dennistoun

If the high property prices of the West End aren’t for you, you should look to the East End of Glasgow and districts like Dennistoun can offer a better return on investment. Tenements and flats in this area are on the rise and are very much in demand. There are excellent links to the centre thanks to the railway so you could attract both professionals or students at Strathclyde or Glasgow Caledonian University. An investment here is likely to be a great move.

Garnethill

Tucked away behind Sauchiehall Street is Garnethill. The beautiful tenements are the perfect investment for anyone who wants to be as close to the centre as possible. This is another great area for anyone who wants to tap into the student markets. You are within walking distance of all three universities plus the Royal Conservatoire and Glasgow School of Art.

Shawlands

Head south of the river to Shawlands as this is one of the top Glasgow neighbourhoods to invest in. Touched by Cathcart, Langside, and Pollokshaws, this corner of Glasgow is often considered to be one of the best places to live in Scotland. It is a lively area packed with bars and restaurants to head to in the evening. Just a short step away is Queens Park and all the fun of Hampden Park, you will never be short of things to do here. Rail connections to Glasgow Central take about ten minutes, so an investment here would be perfect for anyone hoping to attract a professional tenant.

Bishopbriggs

The commuter town of Bishopbriggs lies just to the North of Glasgow. There is a wide variety of property here, from villas to apartment blocks. There is a fantastic community atmosphere in Bishopbriggs and it could be the perfect place if you want to attract a family as tenants. The transport links into Glasgow centre are fantastic, and the schools perform well in league tables.
