Kirkintilloch is situated 10 miles north of Glasgow on the southern edge of the Kelvin Valley. It is the principal town in East Dunbartonshire and is known as ‘The Canal Capital of Scotland’ as it is the only town along the Forth and Clyde corridor to have the canal passing through its town centre.
Kirkintilloch town centre has a wide range of shops and services and is the main shopping centre for the local catchment and surrounding area. The main street is made up of Cowgate which accommodates the Regent Centre and Townhead which is joined by the Canal.
Kirkintilloch is close to Glasgow and is accessible from other towns in East Dunbartonshire. There is a regular bus service from Glasgow and Bishopbriggs and a half hourly train service from Glasgow to nearby Lenzie Station. There are a number of car parks located around the town centre including a small multi storey car park at the Regent Centre.
The Council has established a Champions group and is delivering the Town Centre Masterplan which defines the future development plans for the town.
