Pocket Guide: Lanarkshire

Scotland is home to a unique culture and history, whose local myths, legends, stunning landscape and kind people make it a destination that is not to be missed.

Booking a hotel in the Lowland region of Lanarkshire will provide visitors with the opportunity to discover everything from the scenic beauty and wonders of the Clyde Valley, which features the majestic Falls Of the Clyde Nature Reserve, to the historic market town of Lanark, one of the oldest royal burghs in the country.

For those after something more thrilling then there are plenty of outdoor sports available in the region, including mountain biking and challenging woodland walks in the Carron Valley, watersports at the Strathclyde Park Watersports Centre, and the Lowther Ski Club, Scotland’s lone snowsports centre.

Whether you’re after a relaxing time in the countryside strolling among all the historical sites, or an active adventure, you’ll quickly find that Lanarkshire has plenty of things to see and do, and being conveniently located between Edinburgh and Glasgow makes for an easy break from exploring Scotland’s major cities.

Visit the Historic Town of Lanark

Lanark was granted its royal status in the 12th Century by King David I, after already being home to Scottish Parliament for some 200 years. The town’s rich history mean that there are plenty of long followed customs, and if possible, a visit during Lanimer Day in June will allow visitors to experience the checking of the old burgh boundaries and the crowning of the Lanimer Queen.

Nearby sites that are of interest include a mix of scenic landscapes, such as the water of Lanarch Loch and Castlebank Park, as well as important historical sites, including the New Lanark Visitors Centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that allows its guest to travel back in time and experience life as it was lived here nearly 200 years ago.

The Town of Hamilton and the Head of the Clyde Valley

In South Lanarkshire visitors will discover the town of Hamilton, once the fiefdom of the Dukes of Hamilton, who constructed many of the region's major sites, including the now demolished Hamilton Palace, upon whose grounds you will now find the family’s mausoleum. To better understand the history of Hamilton it's worth visiting the town’s oldest building, Low Parks Museum, where you’ll find detailed information regarding the Hamilton family as well as the town and surrounding area.

However, if you want a mix of outdoor fun and as well as a history lesson, then make your way to Chatelherault Country Park, the old hunting lodge of the Hamilton’s. Here you’ll be able to explore the 18th century lodge, as well as its surrounding grounds, which feature nature trails, talks and tours, an adventure playground, a café and gift shop, as well as a conference centre.
