Househunters looking to buy a house in Scotland may be interested in a new Barratt development in Baillieston. The Sidings, Barratt West Scotland’s most recent development, is situated on a former railway sidings and will consist of apartments and two and three bedroom houses. According to David Balmer, Barratt West sales and marketing manager, the Sidings is located in an ideal spot for commuting to both Edinburgh and Glasgow, since it is close to the M8 and the North Electric rail system. “With the M8 motorway just minutes away, commuting to Glasgow, Edinburgh and the North and the Clyde Coast couldn’t be easier,” he said. The Laurels, another Barratt development in Rutherglen, may be of interest to Scottish first-time buyers, as the company is offering a Head Start package for people stepping onto the housing ladder.
