Athole Gardens forms part of the select and highly prestigious Dowanhill area of Glasgow's West End. It is within close proximity to the hustle and bustle of Byres Road, which is widely regarded as the hub of the West End. A number of fine restaurants are nearby, including No.16, Cail Bruich, Stravaigin and The Bothy, along with a number of bars including those in the well renowned Ashton Lane such as Brel, Jinty McGinty's and The Ubiquitous Chip. There are a number of on-trend boutiques nearby such as Jolly Molly, Oliver Bonas and Nancy Smillie, plus supermarkets including Marks &Spencer and Waitrose. It is an ideal location for those looking to study at Glasgow University and is within walking distance of underground services from the recently refurbished Hillhead station. The landscaped gardens within Athole Gardens can only be used exclusively by the owners within this address and offers gated private access.

It is also in close proximity to the world famous Glasgow Botanic Gardens, which features several glasshouses, the most notable of which is the Kibble Palace. The gardens were created in 1817, and run by the Royal Botanic Institution of Glasgow. The gardens were originally used for concerts and other events, and in 1891 the gardens were incorporated into the Parks and Gardens of the City of Glasgow.

Local transport facilities include Hillhead Underground and a regular bus service. Good road networks link to the Clyde Tunnel, Clydeside Expressway and M8 motorway. The area as a whole proves popular for those requiring access to Glasgow University, The Botanic Gardens, and several local schools and hospitals.
