Rhu lies to the west of Helensburgh and on the north side of the Gareloch. It provides some of west central Scotland’s finest homes and is noted for its marina and yacht club. The village has its own primary school but more major facilities can be found within Helensburgh. Helensburgh is served by three railway stations, Helensburgh Upper on the West Highland Line, Craigendoran, on the North Clyde Line and Helensburgh Central, the terminus of the North Clyde Line. It takes 50 minutes to reach the shops and offices of Glasgow City Centre and another 50 minutes to Edinburgh and the East Coast. The seafront has an indoor swimming pool, an esplanade, a range of shops, cafes and pubs as well as sailing facilities including a marina in Rhu. The streets are built on a gentle slope rising to the north east, and at the brow of the hill a golf club has views looking south out over the town where numerous other sports are active including football, rugby, cricket, athletics, netball, hockey, curling, bowling, sailing and fishing. The locality is well served by a number of excellent state primary schools providing the high attainment secondary school at the recently rebuilt Hermitage Academy which has a Waitrose adjacent. In addition, the well known Lomond Private School is located within Helensburgh. Directions Sat Nav - Ingleby Green, Artarman Road, Rhu, G84 8LQ
