Riddrie is a friendly and welcoming district of Glasgow. The area, located in North East Glasgow, benefits from excellent transport links with regular bus services running to the City Centre and being within close proximity to the M8 Motorway and A80 Cumbernauld Road. The area is bordered by Milnbank and Millerston.
With an abundance of local amenities including local shops, Primary Schools, supermarkets and a public golf course residents of Riddrie won’t be short on activities or places to shop. For those who enjoy late night festivities, Glasgow’s city centre is only a short bus or train journey away.
Originally built as a council housing the area is now largely privately owned, mainly consisting of 1930s semi-detached houses, perfect for family tenants, professionals and young couples.
Renting a house in Riddrie provides resident’s access to a vibrant and generous community, and also Hogganfield Loch and Park which borders neighbouring Millerston and provides excellent grounds for community BBQ’s and picnics rivalling those found at Linn’s ample and beautiful park grounds.
Previous notable tenants of Riddrie include Alasdair Gray, author of ‘Lanark’, in which it is believed the chapter ‘Thaw’ is based on his early life in the district and Rickie Fulton of Scotch and Wry who also grew up in the area.
