Why Move to Dumbarton?
Once the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Strathclyde, Dumbarton town lays on the River Clyde just west of the huge and exciting city of Glasgow.
Dumbarton Castle is an impressive and integral part of the town’s identity. Built on an amazing formation of volcanic rock which surrounds it meant it was practically impenetrable.
During the early and mid 19th Century, Dumbarton was known as a centre for shipbuilding, glassmaking, and whisky production. However, these industries have since declined, and Dumbarton today has become increasingly more a commuter town for Glasgow 13 miles to the east.
Dumbarton town centre is home to a variety of independent businesses, retailers, and national chains, and offers plenty of opportunities for employment in fields like retail, accounting, finance and technology.
Dumbarton Joint Hospital provides mental health services, so is a good place to look for work in psychiatry, community occupational therapist and administration jobs.
When it comes to looks, Dunbartonshire county is hard to beat. It is an extremely attractive part of Scotland with the Kilpatrick Hills providing a captivating backdrop over Clydebank and Dumbarton. It also provides the main western gateway into the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
The Dunbartonshire Council has great plans for several exciting projects designed to boost the economy and visitors. Ongoing works include the development of Dumbarton Waterfront providing retail units and new housing. A huge £15million project expected to bring hundreds of new homes to the area.
Published on 28 August 2020 the improvement project is extending to the town centre which will give pedestrians better access to enjoy the waterfront pathway. When complete, the area at Riverside Lane will be enhanced by a gathering place and gateway to the walkway along the river.
The town may have a long and ancient history; however, it is also a forward-thinking place which has evolved to suit the times without compromising its age-old foundations.
Dumbarton Schools & Education
Education provision is of a good standard. The town is well serviced by eight primaries and two secondaries, namely Dumbarton Academy and Our Lady & St Patrick’s High School.
You can find out more information about each school and how well it performs by visiting the following web site link: https://www.goodschoolsguide.co.uk/
Although there are several FE colleges in the region, West College Scotland is a popular choice. Not only does it provide further education for local students, but it is also a Higher Education provider with campuses and learning centres based in Clydebank, Greenock, and Paisley.
The University of Glasgow is located 12 miles east of Dumbarton. The very highly regarded university has been ranked 60th and 67th globally in the 2019 CWTS Leiden and 2020 QS World University Ranking, respectively, and came nationally among the top 10 universities in the UK.
Spread over several campuses it provides a huge variety of career linked courses and almost 30,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students from over 140 countries worldwide study at the University each year.
Things to do in Dumbarton
There is so much to see and do near Dumbarton and the surrounding area. It is the perfect base to enjoy central Scotland as many areas are accessible within a short drive or by public transport.
Rock climbers flock to Dumbarton Rock for its many challenging climbs, but if the thought of defying gravity is too much, the castle which nestles itself nicely into the rock has some wonderful views of the Clyde and is a more sedate way to enjoy Dumbarton.

Dumbarton has a small housing market and currently, there are just 36 homes for sale within the town’s boundary with a further 30 available within a one-mile radius.
The average cost of a home is £123,346 making homeownership very achievable, especially for those who are leaving the busy centre of Glasgow where the average cost of a home is almost £160,000.
Even though the market is limited, there is still a very wide range of styles available. First-time buyers may be interested in the small two-bedroom terraced homes, these sell from £89,000. To grab a bargain, head towards the centre of the town there are some lovely Victorian terraces on the market starting from £80,000.
If you have a family and require more space, you need to budget for around £270,000 which will afford you a sizeable four-bedroom home on the outskirts of town.
Rental properties are in high demand as there is a lack of rentable properties available, however, the average cost of renting a two bedroomed home stands at £477pcm.
