Tathieknowe is situated in a pleasant village edge and countryside setting in the West Renfrewshire village of Kilmacolm.

The house is quietly and privately tucked off Overton Road which is just off leafy West Glen Road at the upper north eastern side of the village.

The centre of Kilmacolm is only about 0.6 miles away and is a pleasant walk. Kilmacolm village centre, recently redeveloped, has been hard and soft landscaped, is very pretty with seats and summer flowers making for a pleasant meeting and sitting point. There are local stores offering everyday provisions, popular village restaurants, gift/home stores and coffee shops. The community centre and library are now at the pleasant pedestrianised heart of the village and where a farmer’s market is hosted from time to time.

The village has a thriving social community with clubs catering for golf, tennis and bowling. Kilmacolm Golf Club is about 1 mile from Tathieknowe and offers a challenging 18-hole heath/parkland course designed by the acclaimed course architect James Braid. The village also has an excellent health and fitness centre at Birkmyre Park.

Surrounding countryside is some of the most attractive in West Renfrewshire and for the outdoor enthusiast this is fine walking country. The Sustrans cycle track leads to many other parts of central Scotland.

Knapps Loch, at the south side of the village, is famed for its brown trout angling. The River Gryffe has runs of salmon at the back end, both require fishing permits. There are some small low ground shoots run locally as well as rough shooting, both of which can be arranged with local land/estate owners.

Castle Semple Loch offers inland sailing and the Firth of Clyde has excellent chandlery and marina services at Inverkip, Largs and Ardrossan as well as some of the UK’s most scenic and enjoyable coastal sailing.

Kilmacolm has an excellent local primary school and the independent St Columba’s (within easy walking distance), with its enviable record of academic achievement, richly deserves its sought after label. In addition, Glasgow has several excellent independent schools.

The Braehead and Silverburn retail villages are around 13 miles and 15 miles respectively to the east and south east and there one can find a tremendous range of high street multiples together with M&S and Sainsbury anchor stores. Braehead also has an IKEA furniture store.

Glasgow at 17 miles has all the cultural, higher educational and leisure services associated with a major international centre.

The village has a regular bus service to Glasgow and there are main line rail links at Langbank (4.5 miles) and Johnstone (7 miles). Glasgow Airport is only 10 miles to the east and offers domestic and international flights.

The A761 leads to the A737 and subsequently to the M8 motorway corridor which provides fast access to central Scotland and beyond."
