The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Edinburgh and Glasgow
Both Edinburgh and Glasgow are two of the best city break locations in the UK. Compact Edinburgh, with its Old and New Town, historic castle, Holyrood Palace and a host of internationally acclaimed art galleries and museums comes alive in August particularly during the Edinburgh Festival season.
Glasgow has a distinctly different appeal than Edinburgh, reinventing itself as a centre for design and architecture from the 1980s. (In 1999 it became the UK's City of Architecture and Design). New cutting edge architecture and attractions such as the Glasgow Science centre blends with the kitsch Victorian, and acclaimed designs of Glasgow's artistic son - Charles Rennie Mackintosh. As a European city of art, with acclaimed art collections including Kelvingrove and the Burrell Collection, Glasgow is one of the best.
Central Scotland is a vast expanse of diverse Scottish territory containing several counties - Stirlingshire, Perthshire, Fife, Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and to the west Argyll, Bute and the Mull of Kintyre. Central Scotland contains some of Scotland's most stunning Lochs, forests and woodland gorges located within Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. You're in Rob Roy Country here - the famous Scots hero Rob Roy MacGregor was born near Loch Katrine in 1671 and is buried at Balquhidder.
Move into Stirlingshire for the site of probably Scotland's most important battle on Scottish soil - The Battle of Bannockburn. Here in 1314 Robert the Bruce led the Scots to victory against huge odds - the English army by far outnumbered the Scots. More important Scottish historical sites are in the centre including Stirling Castle and Scone Palace near Perth - the Crowning Place of Scottish Kings. Bruce himself was crowned here on the Stone of Scone. For Scotland...........Golf!! Any championship golfer will tell you that to win the Open at St Andrews is to be remembered! The British Golf Museum is aptly placed in St Andrews, with more championship golf in the Central region at Gleneagles. Finally, Perth is fast becoming an important centre for Scottish art alongside Aberdeen. In Perth see the largest collection of work by Scottish Colourist JD Fergusson at the Fergusson Gallery, and move to the Perth Museum & Art Gallery to view more Scottish Art including paintings by Henry Raeburn and Glasgow Boy Edward Hornel.
Glasgow: Scotland with style
Steeped in history yet defined by innovation, Glasgow’s breathtaking Victorian architecture and traditional welcoming embrace have provided a stately inheritance for the city’s commercial resurgence and cultural vigour.
Reiterating its status as one of the world’s most desirable destinations to work, study or simply enjoy a vacation, Scotland’s thriving central metropolis is developing and recasting itself to meet the challenge of hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Likened to 1960s Detroit for its music scene, producing Franz Ferdinand, Belle and Sebastian and Glasvegas in recent years, legendary venues like the Barrowland, King Tut’s and The Arches stage the world’s biggest and most promising new bands, while the City Halls and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall regularly play host to classical performances, all making a contribution to the city’s recent honouring as a UNESCO City of Music.
Cambuslang sits on a long bend on the south bank of the River Clyde, 3 miles south east of the city of Glasgow. One of the highlights in the town every June is its Summerfest, providing a range of street entertainment, an arts programme, children's theatre and much more.
Locally, the most notable historical site in the area is Gilbertfield Castle, which was built by the Hamilton family in the early 17th century near Dechmont hill to the south of Cambuslang in the ancient barony of Drumsagard. By the 18th century it was owned by the retired soldier William Hamilton of Gilbertfield who translated the famous poem Sir William Wallace by Blind Harry from old Scots into English. The Braveheart movie starring Mel Gibson was based on the epic poem which was written in 1477, 172 years after Wallace was executed in the Smithfield area of London.
Cambuslang is easily accessible from the M74. From Glasgow and Hamilton take the A724. From East Kilbride take the A725, A749 then the B759. Cambuslang has regular public transport facilities to Glasgow, and surrounding towns.
