Cathcart is a residential district in the south of Glasgow, offering a variety of properties to renters. Still retaining a strong independent identity, Cathcart is the perfect mix of small town and city suburb.
The district is located on the southern edge of Glasgow City, next to Rutherglen and with suburb Cambuslang lying beyond that further out of the city’s East End. With Govanhill and Laurieston being in between Cathcart and the River Clyde, however, renters looking for somewhere directly next to the city centre may wish to look at other areas like Finnieston.
Cathcart is a predominantly residential area, meaning there are many affordable properties in the area, from tenement flats to terraces, to suit renters of all backgrounds. The area is served by convenient bus and rail links to Glasgow City, with trains from Cathcart railway station running along the Cathcart Circle Line. Local industries also promise plenty of job opportunities for renters who choose to settle in the area.
There is plenty of parkland surrounding Cathcart, making it an attractive area to visit or live in. White Cart Water runs through Cathcart from nearby Linn Park, and Kings Park is situated just to the east of the area.
Cathcart is a home to several churches of various denominations including Cathcart Baptist church, Cathcart United Free church and Cathcart Congregational church. Cathcart's local library can be found in the Couper Institute, one of the district’s most famous historical buildings.
