About the area

The historic area of Old Cathcart contains many architectural features. An good source of information is the ‘Scotcities’ guide, available online at this link:


To the south of the area is Simshill. Former residents include Sir Alex Ferguson and Carol Smillie. It is next to the beautiful Linn Park.

It is situated in between Castlemilk and King’s Park and is only a short walk away from Hampden Park.

There are three schools in Simshill. One secondary school (Kings Park) and two primary schools (St Fillans and St Mirins).
