I'm giving serious thought to moving out of Glasgow and out into the sticks. Lived in Glasgow for my entire puff and thought I'd never leave.
But now seriously thinking about moving out of the city with my family.
Any one on here live in or around kilsyth? I know that its got some shady areas but I dont think this can be avoided.
Drove out there today just for a nosey and wasn't terribly put off. Didnt see any junkies stabbing each other.
I used to think I'd been institutionalised by the west end. Its no doubt a nice wee overpriced bubble.
But really like the idea of living a bit further out. The Tak is a minute away and carron valley nearby. So thats the road and mountain bike sorted on the doorstep.
We've seen a house we're keen on thats right on the edge of the town and seems really quiet and removed from the jakey parts.
Main things to consider are good schools (3 year old daughter and most likely another soon) and the commute through to Glasgow for work.
Wouldn't mind hearing from folk who live in the surrounding areas and if you have kids which schools they go to.
Does anyone here keep in touch with Richard Kidd? He was on the old gfgss and I think I mind him saying he had moved out to Kilsyth. If anyone could put me in touch with him it would be appreciated.
