Living in Inverclyde

All together a great place to live

Inverclyde is in West Central Scotland, just 20 miles from the centre of Glasgow. The region boasts great scenery, a vibrant housing market and great transport links to Glasgow and beyond.

Inverclyde is home to 81,540 people, making us one of the smaller local authorities in Scotland (although, as you'll read elsewhere on this site, that doesn't stop us having big ambitions!). The region includes a variety of towns and villages including main towns Greenock, Port Glasgow and Gourock on the Firth of Clyde, and smaller coastal towns and villages such as Inverkip and Wemyss Bay to the South West, while further inland you'll find picturesque rural villages such as Kilmacolm.

Voted one of Scotland's top four investment locations in a 2006 survey, the area is enjoying substantial regeneration with major investment in schools; leisure and retail facilities; and housing – numerous big name builders are currently creating a range of new homes in the region.

All together it adds up a rather tempting prospect.
