Our home

Our magnificent home is set in Pollokshields, one of the most prestigious and beautiful neighbourhoods of Glasgow. We have everything you could ever want: magnificent lounge with open fire, comfortable sitting room with 60in television, study, huge dining kitchen, and 4 comfortable and spacious bedrooms sleeping up 8...with floor space for twice as many! There is a huge garden, garaging and all the comforts you would expect to find in a top of the range property.

Who we are

  1. I am a former journalist turned publisher and I now own and am chairman of Scotland's leading publishing and communications company. My wife and I have lived here with our three children for the past 11 years and it has been our pleasure to live in this wonderful home and enjoy the fantastic lifestyle that has come with it! Two of my kids are still at home - one of them of the "boomerang" variety! But we'll make sure it's tidy when you get here despite them!!!

    We also have a second home which we can offer visitors. It is located in the South of France in the ancient village of Fitou, the heart of the Languedoc wine country. The house is only 15 minutes from the cosmopolitan city of Perpingnan. It has a magnificent glass-walled lounge/dining room/kitchen with Mediterranean views, its own swimming pool and three beautiful bedrooms. Couldn't be better!

    So, over to you. Whether it's Scottish history or South of France sunshine, we have something for you. Get in touch and let's talk about what we can do for each other.

    Best wishes,

    David and Aileen Cameron.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are, quite literally, two minutes walk from the gates of Pollok Park, recently voted the best in Europe, and home to the world-famous Burrell Collection. While the setting feels rural, we are, remarkably, less than 10 minutes by car, taxi or bus from the bustling and exciting city centre, which is universally regarded now as having the best shopping outside of London. The city's bars, restaurants, cafes and clubs rival anything in the UK and stands now alongside the best in Europe. The amazing cultural and academic and cultural West End is just 15 minutes away.
Glasgow is also the perfect springboard to explore the rest of our wonderful country. From our home, you are only 50 minutes by train from the splendour of Edinburgh, our capital city, half an hour from the legendary bonnie bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond, 50 minutes from the magificent Stirling Caste, known throughout the world as the Gateway to the Highands.
For golfers, our home could not be better placed for you to play some of the great Open Championship courses. Royal Troon is only 30 minutes drive away, Turnberry is the same and of course, St Andrews and Muirfield are within easy driving distance. And as a member of Western Gailes, an Open qualifying links course on the spectacular Ayrshire coast, I am able to offer visitors to my home a game over these historic links...a unique and very special treat indeed.
