Persimmon Homes


Like many of the beautiful towns around Lanarkshire, Larkhall has a rich industrial past – including the largest viaduct in Scotland – the Morgan Glen measuring some 260m across. To the east, the M74 makes its way to Glasgow in around half an hour, while Avon Water snakes to the west, with miles of trees and woodland walks.

Larkhall is home to lots of green space, community gardens, play parks, good schools, a high street with all the shops you need, as well as different places of worship. Your new home in Larkhall also has a golf course and when you’re not on the driving range, you could try driving at the local go-karting arena.  If you’re looking for a new build, Larkhall really does have it all.

Shop, eat and relax close to home

It's great being able to walk from your new home to your local cafe or restaurant to celebrate with friends.

The town has a good choice of supermarkets, as well as smaller convenience stores if you need to pop out for a pint of milk. Larkhall’s also got a leisure centre, a golf course, a library and an early years children’s centre. But, should you wish for the bright lights, Glasgow is only a half hour drive to enjoy all the fabulous shopping, bars and restaurants you could wish for!
