Baillieston is a historical residential area, located east of central Glasgow. Baillieston is ideally situated for travel between Glasgow and Coatbridge with access to the M8 motorway, and is connected to Glasgow city centre by numerous buses and trains operating from Baillieston railway station, which connect the area to Glasgow Central station.
Families renting flats in Baillieston are served by a number of schools, making Baillieston an excellent location for those with children. Residents of Baillieston are also provided with many local amenities and retail outlets.
A number of attractive 18th and 19th century mansions grant Baillieston a unique historical character. Baillieston is the perfect choice for residents looking to live outside Glasgow and avoid the bustle of Glasgow city centre, as well as commuters travelling from Baillieston to the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh.
There are other options available for such flat hunters, however. If you are looking to commute into Glasgow from a residential suburb, Pollok by the M77 in the south west could be seen as a more affordable alternative to Baillieston.
