Castlehill Farm occupies a beautiful elevated position about 10 miles from Glasgow City Centre and about a mile from the historic conservation village of Eaglesham. It is probable that there has been a place of worship in Eaglesham since the 5th or 6th century. In the 17th century it was a small kirktoun and the present village was developed from 1769 by Alexander Montgomerie, 10th Earl of Eglinton. Many of the buildings within Eaglesham are listed and Eaglesham was designated Scotland's first outstanding conservation area in 1960. Eaglesham is served by a primary school, churches, a library and a wide variety of local services such as garage, shops, picture galleries, restaurants and tea rooms. There are a number of secondary schools in the surrounding area, including Williamwood High School and St Ninian's High School, while some of Scotland's finest private schools, such as Belmont House School, Hutchesons' Grammar and Craigholme, are easily accessible on the south side of Glasgow.

The countryside surrounding Eaglesham offers quiet country lanes, fishing and a wide number of respected golf courses. Glasgow city centre is approximately 20 minutes drive (in normal driving conditions) and both Glasgow and Prestwick Airports are within easy reach.


Castlehill Farm is a magnificent sandstone villa, formerly a dairy farm, and has undergone extensive renovation in the last few years. The present owners have comprehensively upgraded the villa's interior to the highest standards with a specification expected of a luxury new home yet retaining the character of its period. Castlehill Farm has an integral double garage with remote controlled doors, an attached three apartment cottage which has also been fully renovated in the last two years and four stables.

The house is set in approx 9.5 acres with beautifully landscaped gardens with a manmade pond with an island accessed via a bridge. The garden is a haven for wildlife and is now home to some resident wild fowl. The gardens also include a fully fitted summerhouse, terrace and a 'scented walkway'. The property also has two paddocks and a large fitted greenhouse.
