Bearsden is one of the premier places to live in Scotland with an abundance of good quality homes, schools, shops, and property. The Cross is and has been the central shopping area for over 100 years for this friendly residential suburb. It is situated approximately 6 miles (20 minutes) north of Glasgow city center on the A809 road to Drymen and Loch Lomond. There are 3 free car parks adjacent to the shops. Bearsden train station is a 5 minute walk and is on the Milngavie Line from Glasgow Queen Street station (low level platform) with a 1/4 hourly service. The school is situated next to the war memorial and opposite the shops. If you are visiting the busiest times are when the school goes in an out. At other times a walk around the streets and into the shops is the real way to sample the character of Bearsden with its taste and style. The motto of Bearsden is “Bear The Gree” from Robert burns and means To take first place.
Bearsden Cross has been at the heart of the community for centuries – possibly since Roman times! It lies at the point where the Roman Military Way, built just south of the Antonine Wall to permit the easy movement of troops and supplies, crosses the north-south route from Glasgow to Loch Lomond. Todays Roman Road follows the line of the Military Way exactly. For centuries, Bearsden – as it became known in the years following the arrival of the railway in 1863 – consisted of no more than a handful of houses known as New Kirk or Chapelton, both names reflecting the building of New Kilpatrick Parish Church in 1649. The present building stands on the site of the original church and dates from l8O7. The present buildings at the Cross were built in 1906, replacing a coach house and stable block known as Meldrums Stables. The developer and builder was Mathew Henderson, one of the leading builders of his day, responsible for the construction of Charing Cross Mansions and Quarriers Homes, Bridge of Weir, among other notable buildings. His initials may be seen on the Drymen Road facade and the name New Kirk on the Roman Road frontage.
Later, Henderson started an ambitious scheme to develop Drumchapel as a commuter village along the same lines as Lenzie and Bearsden, but the initiative was abandoned after only half a dozen large villas had been built along Garscadden Road on the southern edge of the policies of Garscadden House. Henderson occupied one himself, The Rual, and became an elder in the original Drumchapel Parish Church (now in use as a bakery). He was also an elder in New Kilpatrick Parish Church, to which he presented the magnificent stained-glass windows in memory of his wife in the then recently-completed chancel extension. Mathew Henderson died in 1914 and is buried in New Kilpatrick churchyard beside the main gate on Manse Road. In the 1950s Bearsden Town Council planned to sweep away Hendersons New Kirk buildings and replace them with a soulless concrete shopping plaza. Happily, a massive wave of public opposition put paid to the Councils plans and all the New Kirk buildings now enjoy Listed Building status. They are Mathew Hendersons lasting memoria.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
