Glendalough was once owned by the Catholic Church and was named after the town Glendalough in Scotland. Glendalough means ‘valley of 2 lakes’, a fitting inspiration for an area bounded by Herdsman Lake and Lake Monger.
The beautiful natural surroundings were an important area during summer for local indigenous groups, and an excellent nesting place for migratory birds.
Two parcels were ceded from the original landholding on Harborne Street in the 1970s, to form part of what is now the Glendalough Open Space.
The City of Stirling have big plans for development of the suburb, more information can be found on the City website.
Only 5 kms from Perth City along the Graham Farmer Freeway, and 500m from the Glendalough Train Station, Glendalough lends itself to a community that wants an active outdoor lifestyle, cares about their impact on the environment, values close connection to the city and beaches.
