Someone I know is planning to move to Scotland from Germany and asked where I thought was a nice place to live. Has to be near major airports and have decent schools....

 

Thoughts anyone?

Two of my friends moved to Clarkston. Seems a nice place. Good schooling, and near both Prestwick and Glasgow.

Always liked the idea of staying along the Fife South coast. Burntisland, Aberdour, Queensferry, etc. Close to Edinburgh airport and each town has quaint restaurants, pubs and more importantly an active train line.

Aberdour is a lovely wee spot. Couple of boozers and a couple of restaurants. Silver sands beach. Train to Edinburgh 30minutes. Father in law stays there, when not at his other gaff in Spain. So we visit the empty one :lol:

I would like to nominate my village of Bridge of Weir. 10 mins drive from Glasgow airport, 10 mins drive to Johnstone train station where there is a large free car park and trains to Glasgow every 15 minutes , train journey takes 15-20 minutes. Good schools, Gryffe High seems to have very good results if that is important. 3 restaurants and 3 pubs. Hunners of take aways. 

If your friend is German , my work collaegue’s wife is German and they have just moved to Bearsden, might be a wee German community there 🙂

Anybody South West of Stirling sounds Weegie to me. :whistling:

There's a Mexican milf stays there is there no? Her mans on the rigs or something 

Youve also got Dirty Wullies newsagent

Somewhere in the vicinity of Aberdour was there not a farm that had a horse with the biggest cock in the world, affectionately he was known as "Chopper" It used to drag along the field when he was walking about by all accounts. His cock must have been like leather

Some of that might be tweaked from the truth so I may have got myself muddled up along the way. I used to ken a boay that kent a boay and he telt me aw aboot the Dour

The village of Tarbolton in Ayrshire is idyllic. Close to an airport, with high quality education available at Ayr Academy and Wellington, and beautiful countryside five minutes away in any direction. The locals are also highly welcoming, if a little difficult to understand.

In comparison, Clarkston/Whitecraigs are antiseptic ghettoes.

😂 Stewarton has actually expanded to be quite the des-res in Ayrshire. The new motorway get you to Weegie in about 20 minutes and you can go up through Dunlop for the airport. Great schools and the best butchers in the world.

The echt show is to be avoided for outsiders though, it always ends in a battle royal :lol:
