Many attractions in South Lanarkshire invite you to explore the area’s industrial past. The jewel in the crown is the restored 18th-century cotton mill village of New Lanark, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other popular historical attractions include Bothwell Castle, the Museum of Scottish Country Life at Kittochside, and the Leadhills and Wanlockhead Steam Railway. Biggar has seven rather unusual museums. The area also offers many scenic walks and nature trails amid some of the most dramatic scenery in Lowland Scotland.
