Find your new dream home in the happiest place to live in Scotland!

East Renfrewshire - the location of some of our most sought-after new homes and developments close to Glasgow - has been named the happiest place to live in Scotland in a survey by Royal Mail.

The scenic region, which is home to around 95,000 people and is ideally located for commuting to Glasgow via the M77, also boasts some of the country’s top schools, numerous golf and tennis clubs plus the UK’s Best Park of 2015 Rouken Glen Park, as well as a multitude of opportunities for shopping and dining out.

The Royal Mail’s first ‘happiness index’ assessed council areas on a range of measures including average earnings, rates of crime, average life expectancy and the level of carbon emissions. The study sought to find the areas across the UK sparking the most joy for both visitors and residents, and East Renfrewshire, with its friendly and diverse residents and ideal situation between the city and countryside, came out on top.

A selection of stunning Mactaggart & Mickel homes are available now in East Renfrewshire for Reservation and Early Bird Option! Choose from luxurious, beautifully-designed 4 and 5-bedroom family homes at Castle Grove in Newton Mearns or a selection of 3 to 5-bedroom homes for Early Bird Option at our newly launched, much-anticipated new development Stewart Gardens in Malletsheugh. This very special new neighbourhood will offer excellent quality of life with high-specification homes, all with provision for fibre broadband.

For downsizers, there is still time to snap up our last remaining luxury apartment at Milverton Grange, featuring modern and bright open-plan living spaces and underfloor heating throughout. Later this year we will also be launching an iconic and unique art deco-inspired development, Broom Grove, on the site of the former Whitecraigs Bowling Club.

East Renfrewshire boasts three of the top five schools for exam results, according to the Herald’s unofficial league tables published last week and in January was revealed to have average broadband speeds which are twice as fast as those in other areas such as the Scottish Borders, Moray and Argyll and Bute.
