    N Ayrshire or renfrewshire? 15th Aug 19 at 7:15 PM
    I am looking to move from galloway a bit further up the line.
    I am a nurse and Im looking to live with an easy commute to a hospital.
    any recommendations?
    I know there is a previous thread regarding Ayrshire but I'm looking at options a bit further out than that as well as ayr itself.
    warm regards

    You want strangers on the internet to tell you where to move to?

    Come on please.

    I am happy to apply for jobs at all of them I am just trying to seek out what areas people find the nicest before I start looking at properties etc.

    I personally think it is a good idea to ask for advice from people who live in the area you are considering moving to kimplus8.
    North Ayrshire is a lovely place to live, most of it coastal and on mainline train and bus links.
    If you are a nurse, I assume you will have to make enquiries at the hospitals, if your move is based primarily on work.
    I have lived in North Ayrshire for 8 years now, having lived my whole life (50+ years) in England.

    There are good and bad parts in both Ayrshire and Renfrewshire. With a lot of Renfrewshire you are also easily able to commute to the hospitals in Glasgow as well as the RAH in Paisley which is worth keeping in mind.
