The M74 extension runs past the property with the new Junction 2 allowing easy access to the motorway, both east and west, approximately 1.6 km (1 mile) to the north.

The immediate vicinity has seen large scale commercial and residential redevelopment in recent years and is fast becoming increasingly popular with industrial and commercial occupiers due to its excellent motorway connections and public transport facilities.

The location sits within Clyde Gateway which is Scotland’s biggest and most ambitious regeneration programme. It is a partnership between Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council and Scottish Enterprise, backed by funding and direct support from the Scottish Government.
