Situated on the crest of the stunning Clyde Valley, Lanark is the county town of Lanarkshire and is home to some spectacular scenery. Boasting an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, the town has plenty to offer new home buyers. Among the town’s many attractions is the beloved Lanark Memorial Hall, which was given a £5.35 million redevelopment in 2013 and is now a popular entertainment venue, hosting a range of shows throughout the year. The hall also offers different classes and courses including dance, drama, music and painting. With a wealth of leisure activities and areas of stunning nature to explore, along with a range of schools and a convenient location for reaching both Glasgow and Edinburgh, this could be your ideal place to call home.

The great outdoors awaits

For those who love the outdoors, you’re in luck. Lanark Loch adjoins the historic Lanark Golf Cub and offers a quiet retreat. An excellent area for dog walking, running and picnics, the loch has a pitch and putt course, a cafe in the summer months and a restaurant and music venue. Further afield, the Falls of Clyde Nature Reserve boasts four inspiring waterfalls, beautiful riverside walks and an abundance of wildlife.

Also well worth a visit is New Lanark, an 18th-century cotton mill village that holds World Heritage status and is 1.8 miles from the town. There you’ll find a thriving community with a fascinating history brought to life through an award-winning visitor centre. On the roof of the historic mill building is an impressive roof garden to enjoy – the largest of its kind in Scotland. The village is also home to a health and fitness club with excellent leisure facilities, including a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and health and fitness studio.

For more leisure facilities, Lanark Lifestyles won’t disappoint. The large local gym is well-equipped and features a health suite, coffee shop, swimming pool and wide range of fitness classes.

A family-friendly town

Young families will be pleased to know there’s an excellent choice of schooling for children of all ages in Lanark. There are three primary schools and a grammar school for secondary education. Younger members of the family will also enjoy Lanark’s two green parks – Castlebank Park, with its play area, wood carvings and Fairy Dell walk; and Delves Park, which has children’s swings and is great for sports and picnics on a summer’s day.

Great transport links

You get to enjoy the best of both worlds here – the surrounding countryside and small-town feel are a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of cities, but the industry and attractions of Glasgow and Edinburgh are both within easy reach for commuting or pleasure. By road you can reach Edinburg in around an hour and Glasgow in around 40 minutes, or head to the train station in Lanark for regular services to both cities as well as the surrounding area.
