Looking for a home in or near Cambuslang?

Cambuslang is on the eastern outskirts of Glasgow. The city centre is only 6 miles away, so this is a great option for commuters. The economy of this area has shifted over the years and the traditional hard-working industries of the Clyde have given way to the economy of light industry. Cambuslang is now a popular choice for families and professionals, with the benefits of city life on one hand and easy access to the green spaces of the Clyde Valley on the other.
