Editor's Pick: The top residential park of January 2021 – Heatherbank Country Park

24d6c3b9-dbcf-47ab-b61c-567686db6089

In an elevated position, surrounded by a vast vista of heathland and moorland, sits an enticing opportunity to make a move to Scotland. Enticing? That’s not just about the lovely views and the occasional appearance of deer at dawn and dusk on the heathland. It’s about this park’s delightful remoteness yet also its proximity to villages, towns and a city.

Heatherbank Country Park is in East Renfrewshire, 30 minutes from Glasgow and just a few minutes from its nearest town, Barrhead. So, all conveniences and necessities are close by. Yet, as you drive from Barrhead and the road gets narrower, you leave behind all buildings and get the feeling that you are out in the wilds of west Scotland. Which you are. Keep going and your next stop would be the Ayrshire coast and the Firth of Clyde; half an hour brings you to the little port of Irvine and the wide sandy beach at Saltcoats (great for a picnic). Dogs are allowed on this stretch of beach that extends both north and south from here. The little port of Ardrossan has a marina, sandy bays, an old harbour – and, from here, you can take a ferry to the magical island of Arran.

When we visited in the autumn of 2020 an Omar show home was just being installed on its plot. It’s a unique home, bespoke created for Heatherbank. Its £162,000 price tag, for a 50ft by 20ft luxury home, is an example that illustrates the good value of park homes in Scotland.

A smaller home, a 36ft by 20ft Omar Westbury, had also just arrived at the time of our visit. That’s £115,000; another example of great value. Park home prices, of course, are closely linked to bricks and mortar home prices in any given area. So, if you are looking to make a move to park home living as a means of freeing up some capital by selling a house in an area where prices are much higher, Heatherbank, owned by Laird Estates, is a great example of what can be achieved.
