Dumbarton Property Market Update

Demand for property in Dumbarton and West Scotland has been steadily increasing since the crash in 2007-08. We’ve seen particular growth since the beginning of 2016, with more house hunters showing an interest in buying property – particularly two- and three-bedroom houses – in this picturesque coastal town. Significantly more affordable than Glasgow, the overall average price of property in Dumbarton is currently £125,346, making it an ideal place for first-time buyers, families, and commuters.

Once the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Strathclyde, Dumbarton lies inland to the west of Glasgow on the north bank of the River Clyde. The name of the town comes “Dun Breatainn”, which is a Scottish Gaelic phrase meaning “fortress of the Britons”. Until the mid 15th century, Dumbarton was knows as Dunbretane. It’s unclear why the “n” in the town’s name became an “m”, and why the council area is inconsistently known as Dunbartonshire. A confusing anomaly!

Dumbarton is renowned for its major shipbuilding industry during the 19th century, as well as Dumbarton Rock – an imposing 240ft-high volcanic plug which is home to Dumbarton Castle. Well exposed and positioned on a prominent southern outcrop, visitors can admire the castle’s 18th-century Georgian military architecture and climb more than 500 steps to the top of iconic Rock to enjoy breathtaking views over the River Clyde, Loch Lomond and Argyll.

The area is ideally situated for enjoying the many outdoor activities on offer in the West of Scotland, and is just a short drive or train journey from Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, Helensburgh, and Glasgow city centre
