Amberwood is located in the pretty hamlet of Shandon which lies to the west of Helensburgh (widely acknowledged for the status of its fine properties) and is one of the most desirable enclaves within the Clyde Estuary. Amberwood is located within the catchment for highly reputable primary and secondary schools and is within approximately four miles of the Lomond co-educational school within Helensburgh.
The neighbouring village of Rhu, approximately 1.7 miles from Shandon, is the home to the Royal Northern Yacht Club and offers a first class marina. Helensburgh provides two train stations with regular services to City (journey time of approximately 45 minutes), places of historic interest, broad selection of shops, health care facilities, several churches, banks, leisure centre, swimming pool, Victoria Halls(used for cultural events), parks, promenades, working pier, bars, cafes and coffee shops.
While enjoying all associated with rural living, Shandon remains within a comfortable daily commute of Glasgow city and so we consider the house will be of interest to commuters seeking a peaceful location from which they can recharge their batteries from hectic city life.
Garelochhead has good local shops and local services which adequately cater for everyday needs and requirements. Helensburgh would be the likely destination for a weekly shop and Glasgow city is about 29.1 miles distant.

The immediate area offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits including cycling routes, challenging hill climbs, walks, many miles of forest tracks for horse riding and other outdoor pursuits. Helensburgh has an 18-hole golf course, 4.2 miles distant, and the famous Lyle Anderson course at Loch Lomond is also only 9 miles away.
For river and loch fishing, permits can be acquired locally. There are also abundant sea fishing opportunities. Locally there are commercially run shoots and excellent stalking opportunities.
Amberwood is fantastically situated for sailing opportunities. Loch Long leads into the Firth of Clyde which gives access to excellent sailing environment of the West Coast. There is a sailing club at Cove further down Loch Long as well as local marinas and boatyards at Rosneath and Rhu.
