It takes about half an hour to drive into central Glasgow and if you prefer you can use the regular train service from Larkhall – the station is just 10 minutes away and the journey time is less than 40 minutes. With these easy links into the city, Stonehouse is an ideal home base for families and professionals who want a quieter way of life at the end of a busy week.
Stonehouse is on the route of the Avon Water, an area of natural beauty, and it’s also close to the Clyde Valley, a lovely stretch of the route of the famous River Clyde that includes the Chatelherault and the Strathclyde Country Parks. Downtime in the countryside is on your doorstep.
A local way of life
Stonehouse has the bonus of two primary schools: Stonehouse Primary and Newfield Primary. St Patrick’s Primary School in Strathaven is another option for your children. Larkhall Academy and Strathaven Academy are the local secondary schools. Excellent bus services between these two towns make sure that it’s easy to get there from Stonehouse. Sports facilities at the Alexander Hamilton Memorial Park include play areas, multi-use games areas and a rugby pitch. Local shops include a SPAR, Boots Pharmacy and an Esso garage.
Stonehouse is halfway between Larkhall and Strathaven on the A71. An easy 4-mile trip will add national supermarkets, shops and leisure facilities. Larkhall has the advantage of a train station, and both these friendly towns are a great back-up for your own local facilities.
Glasgow is a fantastic city for leisure, shopping, entertainment, culture and nightlife, and Stonehouse is in an ideal location to get there.
