Port Glasgow Inf.

Recommended Posts

Hi there,I'm thinking about buying a small flat in Port Glasgow for rent. Is it a very bad, deprived area?Could a property be easily let out there?I'm from overseas, lived in England for a while,have also been to Scotland,but don't know Glasgow very much.Thanks a lot.Joseph

yes it is

90% of the outlying areas and towns surrounding glasgow are absolute holes, it would be quicker to list the places that aren't

bishopton/erskine is ok

bearsden/milngavie

newton mearns

apparently hamilton isn't too tatty

east kilbride is yer basic new town

apart from that though....

I worked out that way for a while. I was advised to be very wary of junkies standing by the roadside. Apparently they have a nice trick of stepping out into traffic so they can make accident claims.

Have a look at upmystreet and click on the various tabs - I've selected the crime one for you.

It really is a depressing place. Avoid like the plague.

Not again..... :rolleyes:

Yes, know what you mean. I thought it had gone a bit quiet in the Scotland section since your nemesis was outed. We can but hope there might be a few genuine new members...

If you really want to throw some money away, here's a 1-bed, being sold at auction, guide price £10,500. Fill yer boots.

I was trying to find the photos of that street when replying to the first post. Robert Street. I was looking for Robertson Street...

Yes... there's some really nice properties in Robert Street.

I would say they are worth as much as the landfill tax you can avoid on whatever rubbish you could fit in them.
