About the neighbourhood
Coach House at The Glen is located in the leafy upper West side of Helensburgh and is just a short 5-10 minute walk from town.

Helensburgh is a bustling seaside town with several great restaurants and bars and lots to do including visiting Hill House (designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh), the cinema (in an old church!), local walks etc.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is just a 10 minute drive from Helensburgh. Inveraray, Stirling and Falkirk are just an hour away. Glasgow is 45 minutes on the train and Edinburgh is 1hr 45 minutes on the train.
Getting around
It is not essential to have a car with you to enjoy Helensburgh - there are two local trains stations connecting Helensburgh to Glasgow, Edinburgh, London and the West Highland Line to Mallaig also passes through the town.

If you want to get out-and-about in the wider area - Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and West Argyll - it would be more convenient to have a car.
