These estimates are based on our experience living in Glasgow for the past 6 years. Some regions of Glasgow are very expensive such as West End, Bearsden, Milngavie and Newton Mearnes. Others are less expensive such as Govan, East End, Drumchapel, Maryhill, etc. You are most welcome to update the estimates at any time. Best wishes, SP.
