I’m wondering if anyone can share some advice/insights as we’re looking to move to Kilmacolme....A little concerned about the surrounding areas, I understand Inverclyde has varied crime rates dependent on the areas. Does this affect the residents living in Kilmacolme in anyway? We’re moving as St Columba’s seems to be a decent school, if anyone knows anything to share about the school - that would be most helpful.
Thanks in advance!
Kilmacolm is quite far removed from the rest of Inverclyde towns since it sits above the hill and is a relatively rural village. It’s sleepy and has barely any crime to speak of so no. Most people go to Port Glasgow for the shops, eg M&S food hall and there are some lovely walks and parks around Greenock. Some parts of Inverclyde have been victim to neglect and lack of investment for decades so they’re a bit run down but everyone is very friendly and not looking to steal your handbag
