Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Milngavie is a prosperous suburb, north of Glasgow and less than 9 miles from the city centre, nestling on the fringe of the Stirlingshire countryside. The area has a high quality of life and excellent amenities, benefitting from a real sense of community and semi-rural aspects, whilst offering quiet and easy access by road and rail to the city centre.

It is perhaps the extensive range of leisure pursuits and amenities that Milngavie offers which makes the town such an attractive location. Flanked by the majestic Campsie Fells and Dumgoyne, there is a choice of excellent hill-walking. Enjoy a brisk Sunday morning walk to the top of Dumgoyne, a 1,400ft volcanic plug which offers some wonderful views from the summit. This will undoubtedly create an appetite for a well-deserved Sunday lunch – as well as the chance to perhaps drop in and take a tour of the Glengoyne Distillery nestling at the base.

The area also includes lovely peaceful walks and cycle tracks in Mugdock Country Park. Very popular with young and old – people walking dogs, jogging or horse-riding, there is even a little courtyard to relax, with gifts shops and cafes – Mugdock Country Park certainly ticks all the boxes!

Craigmaddie Reservoir is another very popular area for an afternoon or evening stroll, with great views over Glasgow and beyond. Sports enthusiasts are spoiled for choice. With numerous golf courses, a Virgin Active gym, at least two sports clubs and the Bearsden Ski Club – as well as horse riding and equestrian facilities nearby – there is something to suit everybody. For those interested in learning to sail or race, Bardowie Loch is the home of Clyde Cruising Club. Yet, for the more adventurous, a cairn in the town centre marks the official start of the West Highland Way.

Milngavie is a fantastic location from which to explore the Scottish countryside and heritage beyond. The lovely little villages of Killearn, Drymen, Fintry and Kippen are just a short drive away, and have plenty of great local restaurants, bars and coffee shops – and there are even annual music festivals in Fintry and Kippen - so join in the fun!

Local Shopping

There is a bustling town centre which has good shopping for everyday and specialist needs. You are spoilt for choice with everything from a great Marks & Spencer foodstore to the local fishmonger who is always very busy!

About Developer

The founders of our Company had been housebuilders during Victoria's long reign. They were however engaged not just narrowly in construction but were importers of the raw material required for their business.

By the early 1900's, the Mactaggarts and Mickels had come together and with others, who would later establish their own shorter lived building companies, were constructing tenements in the West End of Glasgow. They had also built in London's Portland Place but their Glasgow tenements are now locally recognised as the pinnacle of achievement in tenemental construction.

The opportunities offered by the government to be involved in a housing boom following the First World War were not missed. In the four years from 1922, in Glasgow and in Lanarkshire, the Mactaggarts and Mickels in partnership built over 3000 houses for local authorities before registering as a Limited company in 1926.

The years from 1939 to 1945 were not uneventful and were occupied with work for the war effort. Also, in 1943 the Mactaggarts severed their connection with the Company and since that time Mactaggart & Mickel Limited has become entirely a concern of the Mickel family.

We support many local groups and institutions. Major recent events in which we have been involved were Glasgow's Garden Festival where we designed the 'Broom Milk Bar' as our contribution. During the Year of Culture a number of items from our archive were exhibited at 'Glasgow's Glasgow'.

The family and personal links we have forged grow ever stronger and we take pride in the long service of our workforce. At a time when other builders sub-contract we prefer to employ tradesmen whom we know and who, in turn, know our methods and standards.

The Company strives by its own efforts to maintain its place as the local housebuilder with the highest reputation for quality and service to customers, and have several awards for design and quality from the NHBC to the What House Gold Awards for the best luxury development in Britain.

We at Mactaggart & Mickel firmly believe that our innate ability to do things is well founded in our sound experience and achievements in house building which has patently defied detrimental change. Indeed the story of Mactaggart & Mickel is a true testament to innovation and tradition.
