East Renfrewshire Council

Living in East Renfrewshire

We've got it all.

We're rural, suburban, very close to one of the most attractive shopping cities in Britain, have excellent housing and quality of life. And if that wasn't enough we have the best schools in Scotland.

Our schools are well above the Scottish average and regularly where East Renfrewshire schools go, Scotland follows.

East Renfrewshire is one of the most desirable places to live. Excellent housing, a high quality of life and the place was been described as one of the best places in Scotland to bring up a family.

Right on the doorstep is rural countryside, even closer the area is peppered with parks and open spaces that offer a range of leisure opportunities.

Rouken Glen is jewel in the crown and has been a favourite visiting place since tram cars carried Glaswegians to enjoy strolls through the glen or the unspoilt parkland.

If you are looking for a location where you can reach the best that Scotland has to offer easily and quickly, somewhere to give children the best start in life or even the tranquillity of enjoying attractive surroundings to get away from it all, East Renfrewshire's your first choice.
