/ Job in Paisley - where to live?
I don't really know the area at all, so any advice or recommendations from anyone who lives or has lived in the area would be good to know.
Paisley's close to Glasgow but visually it's a hole and got nothing going for it.
Try further down the river. Gourock has amazing views to the Argyll hills. Try and find a place on the waterfront. Great fresh air. Brilliant watersports. Cheap accommodation widely available. The commute to Glasgow's 45 min on the train and they run every 20min.
Should have said, this is only for a year. Can probably live without views from the window as I spend most of my free time involved in them anyway.
You have to weigh up what your priorities are- if you really want a trendy area you're talking West End, Shawlands, City Centre Glasgow. You'll pay a significant premium to do that though.
Paisley isn't the most appealing place but it's definitely got its better bits. There are tons of reasonably priced flats to rent in the South Side of Paisley or the modern developments in the West End. The town centre itself isn't worth drinking in if you value your life, but it's a 10min train journey to Glasgow...
I'm not a fan of Greenock, the Port or Gourock so I personally would not choose to live down there. Just like Paisley, same social problems but further away from Glasgow...
Anywhere along and around Paisley Road West probably has a combination of convenient commute to Paisley, quick into Glasgow and cheaper than some areas.
The other side of Paisley - Johnstone, Howwood - might have reasonable transport links and a bit of countryside nearby.
Kilmalcolm ,or even Bridge of Weir are not far away .
Mr McCoist and the likes stay around there
I've lived in Ibrox next to the climbing centre. Rough as hell but incredibly cheap and accessible.
