The South Lanarkshire region
Lots to do and see. Glasgow is only 17 minutes by train and is full of shops, restaurants, art galleries, museums, bars, clubs - you only have to decide! Tennis courts and golf very close. You can also spend a beautiful day on Loch Lomond or down at the beach in Troon or one of the other many Ayrshire beaches.
The region is also very import for business peopel - Eurocentral is only a 10 minute drive. Edinburgh only 40 minutes away.
Take a drive up the Clyde valley for some beautiful scenery.
The town of Hamilton was originally known as Cadzow or Cadyou (Middle Scots: Cad?ow, the "?" being the letter yogh), pronounced /kadyu/. During the Wars of Scottish Independence the Hamilton family initially supported the English and Walter fitz Gilbert (the head of the Hamilton family) was governor of Bothwell Castle on behalf of the English. However, he later changed loyalty to Robert the Bruce, following the Battle of Bannockburn, and ceded Bothwell to him. For this act, he was rewarded with a portion of land which had been forfeited by the Comyns at Dalserf and later the Barony and lands of Cadzow, which in time would become the town of Hamilton.
Cadzow was renamed Hamilton in the time of James Hamilton, 1st Lord Hamilton, who was married to the Princess Mary, the daughter of King James II of Scotland.
The Hamilton family constructed many landmark buildings in the area including the Hamilton Mausoleum in Strathclyde Park, which has the longest echo of any building in the world. The Hamilton family have been major land-owners in the area to this day. Hamilton Palace was the historic seat of the Dukes of Hamilton until the early-twentieth century.
Other historic buildings in the area include Hamilton Old Parish Church, a Georgian era building completed in 1734 and the only church to have been built by William Adam. The graveyard of the old parish church contains some Covenanter remains. The former Edwardian Town Hall now houses the library and concert hall. The Townhouse complex underwent a sympathetic modernization in 2002 and opened to the public in summer 2004. The ruins of Cadzow Castle also lie in Chatelherault Country Park, two miles from the town centre.
Hamilton Palace was the largest non-royal residence in the Western world, located in the north-east of the town. A former seat of the Dukes of Hamilton, it was built in 1695, subsequently much enlarged, and demolished in 1921 due to ground subsidence. It is widely acknowledged as having been one of the grandest houses in Scotland, was visited and admired by Queen Victoria, and was written about by Daniel Defoe.
Hamilton Barracks was formerly the Depot of The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) and the home of the 1st Battalion of the Regiment. The Regimental Museum is part of the Low Parks Museum.
The Low Parks Museum is housed in what was a 16th century inn and a staging post for journeys between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Recently refurbished, it is the oldest building in Hamilton and is to the north of the Palace Grounds.
David Livingstone lived in Hamilton from 1862 until his death on 1 May 1873. His house still stands on Burnbank Road (No.17) and has a plaque about him living there,
You can also visit the Chatelherault Hunting Lodge and Hamilton Old Parish Church
By road the town is to the west of the M74 motorway, the main southerly link to England, which joins the M6 just north of Carlisle. The main route from Edinburgh is the M8, leaving at junctions 6 or 7.

"Home from home, great location"
My husband and I stayed at this property recently and thoroughly enjoyed our week there. The flat is more like a house as it's on two floors and is very light and airy. It was very clean and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable as was the huge sofa in the living room. It was much bigger than expected. We really felt at home there The location is fantastic, so close to shops, station, restauants and bars. We didn't need a car at all. The owners were very helpful and gave us lots of advice, we will certainly be booking again for our next trip to the area.

"CLEAN COSEY COMFORTABLE COME BACK OH YES!"
The flat is in a great location for walking in Hamilton and taking the train or bus into Glasgow from where you can travel all around Scotland. It truly is a home from home, I travelled alone but would intend to return again with my family for a longer stay. Everything was immaculate and I felt cosey and at at home in every room. I particularly liked the raised dinning area, how well equipped the kitchen and dinning area was just beautiful and the log burner for the evenings with a glass of wine and a book smashing !.Having the bedrooms upstairs made you feel that you were in a house rather than a flat . I am from Hamilton and returned to visit family . I would like to have a wee bolt hole here and this flat is exactly the type of bolt hole I would like to have so if the owners ever think of selling I'm definately intersted !!! Thank you for a very lovely cosey comfy stay and I look forward to booking with you again .
