House Prices Soar 74% In Scotland's Most Unlikely Hotspot

Recommended Posts

Bonhill is all right, actually, it's almost within walking distance of Loch Lomand, you've got a good train service into central Glasgow, there is a degree of Chaviness, but not bad really. Some very good discount complexes are in that Leven Valley. As the lady says, you've got loads of nice countryside on your doorstep. I'd live there before living in Newton Mearns, I can tell you that.

Let's for get about the high unemployment, endemic heroin abuse and violence. Other than that Bonhill's fine. It is a large scale, bleak housing scheme built for the overspill from the Glasgow slums of the 60's, which imported significant social deprivation to a semi-rural area. It is a highly undesirable place to live and the fact that house prices are rising is an excellent indication IMHO that the bubble is about to burst in a big way.

There are far fewer areas in Western Europe more deprived than Bonhill (I should know, I used to work with a local urban regeneration agency and Bonhill comes before some of the worst slums of Glasgow in getting special aid for deprived areas.)

Male life expectancy is, I believe, among the lowest in Europe, at about 71. It's about 82 in Dorset!!!

The current UK housing Market is utter MADNESS and this proves it.

All depends on what you are looking for. There are some quite nice new estates higher up on the hills. True, the architecture is not stunning, but the place isn't that big, so you don't have far to get out of it. I think you're right about it being utter madness, though.

I have this theory about the British. I have never seen such a bunch of piler-inners. Someone has realised that it was the last place in Britian where you could buy a house for 55K. They told their mates, all their mates piled into these crap houses, the place became (very tomporally) trendy, house prices rose exponentially, and as a result the one square inch of this fair land that wasn't going to land on its head when prices start to slide will be in there with the rest. Just as well. They might feel left out otherwise.

It's not just the British, it's the humans as well.
