Providing Quality, Stress Free, Independent Living for Older People. Located in the heart of the seaside town of Helensburgh, we have been assessed as Very Good across all inspected areas by the Care Inspectorate in June 2023.
Barclay Smith House is a traditional two-story town house building close to the centre of Helensburgh. The house is made up of Seven private apartments that are well maintained with access to a secluded back garden which our residents love to make use of in the good weather. There is ample free roadside parking just outside the main door with bus stops on both sides of the street. The town centre and its amenities are very accessible, only a short walk away. There are two train stations with direct routes to Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Highlands.
