The neighbouring countryside caters for a wide range of agriculture and forestry along with sporting/leisure activities including fishing, golf, shooting, sailing and all equestrian pursuits.
Kilmacolm takes its name from the dedication of its ancient church to St Columba of Iona, and has an excellent local primary school and nursery with St Columba’s Independent School having an enviable academic record and offers education from nursery school to secondary level. In the village there are pick-up points for many of Glasgow’s highly reputable private schools which include Glasgow and Kelvinside Academies, The High School of Glasgow, Hutcheson Grammar, St Aloysius and Craigholme School for Girls. These schools are acknowledged for their academic excellence, with further education available at top UK Universities at Glasgow University, Strathclyde University and Glasgow Caledonian University as well as a number of colleges.

Glasgow City Centre, 20 miles to the east, has earned its reputation as one of the UK’s leading cities for retail space, offering a range of shopping centres including Braehead, Buchanan Galleries, Silverburn and the St Enoch Centre, to name but a few.
