Cairn’s Guide To The West End for Renters and Buyers

“Folk of all kinds – All kinds of folk” reads Alasdair Gray’s mural at the entrance to Hillhead subway station. The famous Glaswegian artist and author isn’t wrong! Glasgow’s West End has been one of the city’s most sought after areas for decades and it shows no sign of losing its sparkle soon.

From fresh faced students to grandparents, the West End of Glasgow allows anyone and everyone to live side by side. Here you’ll find quirky cafes on cobbled streets, some of the city’s finest restaurants, beautiful green space all year round and the friendly banter that proves People Make Glasgow!

From the classic West End vibes of Hillhead, home to the University of Glasgow campus via the exclusive Park District right to the furthest West corner of suburban Anniesland, this vast sprawling area of the city has something for everyone, from first time student renter to those looking to relocate after years of climbing the property ladder.

But with so much to choose from, where to look first? We’ve compiled a guide to each area of these parts to help you make your all important decision no matter your budget or needs. We’ll help you find out why the say West is best!
