Royston is situated on the north side of the River Clyde. The area, formally known as Garngad (and is still referred to as such by a number of residents), is bordered by the areas Springburn, Germiston and Dennistoun.
Royston has access to a range of local amenities, including several shops, takeaways, pubs, a post office and a library and learning centre. As well as this, a flat in Royston is situated a short distance from Glasgow City Centre.
Royston is located the other side of the city centre from Rutherglen and Langside in Glasgow’s south side. That means that they are easily accessible via the M8 and M74, or public transport. Barnhill station is nearby and there are several bus links to the area.
Royston benefits from being in close proximity to Glasgow Caledonian and Strathclyde University making it a convenient area for students, although it isn’t one of the main destinations for students attending those institution (similar to Knightswood Park, near Glasgow University). There is also access to Royston Primary School and several other schools that reside nearby in neighbouring areas, making Royston a great area for families with children.
Sighthill Park and Glenconner Park make Royston a pleasantly green area so close to the city centre. The district’s Irish and Celtic routes supply another form of greenery.
