The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
If you want to sample the rich tapestry that makes Scotland what it is, this area has it all.
Travel east and you are soon on the road to Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth and Glasgow - easy access to the M9, M80 and M8 takes you rapidly to all the key areas of Scotland.
Travel west and after a half hour drive through glorious scenery. Loch Lomond is at your feet, with its iconic Ben towering above it, its islands dotted across its silver waters, easily accessible in shining varnished cruise boats. Or onward to Argyllshire and the Mull of Kintyre.
Travel north and the Trossachs, Aberfoyle and Callander – Rob Roy McGregor's heartland – there to be explored. Or Stirling with its ancient Castle, Bannockburn Visitor Centre, Wallace Monument.
Travel south and the beautiful Firth of Clyde opens before you, the mountains of Arran blue on the horizon, the green hills of the Isle of Cumbrae (Scotland's most accessible island) only ten minutes away on the smart white ferry. Cruise these waters on the world's last seagoing paddle steamer, the Waverley, watch the seals, porpoises and dolphins, see one of the world's largest gannet colonies on Ailsa Craig. Or move on to Burns Country in Ayrshire.
There's so much to see and do in easy reach – you won't know where to start and you won't want to stop!
Although a rural village, Lennoxtown has a fascinating history, including industries such as a nail works, a calico works, and an alum factory, owned by Macintosh of waterproof clothing fame. All of these are now gone without trace, and the only industry now is the bottling plant for Highland Spring Water. The town centre - soon to be redeveloped - is an excellent centre for touring, providing all facilities needed - garages, pharmacy, grocers, butchers, newsagents, doctors, churches.
Lennoxtown nestles at the foot of the beautiful Campsie Fells, and their towering crags can been seen from windows of the house, changing colour with the seasons – green with spring grasses, purple with heather, golden with bracken – or wrapped in ethereal mists, waterfalls tumbling down their rugged crags. The Campsies provide wonderful scope for hiking, birdwatching or just wandering.
A drive up the Crow Road at the other end of the village takes one up a steep road clinging to the mountain side, to breathtaking views over the Clyde Valley below. Continuing on through the mountain pass and across the moors, then down through woodlands, rivers, and pretty villages leads to a long straight road, built by General Wade, heading for Stirling, its ancient castle built by James IV, towering on the skyline.
Close by is Barrhill - a Roman fort on the Antonine Wall. Ample scope for hill walking and for flatter walking and cycling, the towpath on the Forth & Clyde canal (3miles), connects with the new Falkirk Wheel. At the foot of the road the Thomas Muir Heritage trail hugs pretty banks of the Glazert Water. The West Highland Way, which runs from north Glasgow to Fort William, can be accessed only 7 miles away. Trout fisheries and golf courses nearby. Bus route to Glasgow 2 minutes from house. Glazert Country House Hotel only a stone's throw away if you want that quiet evening drink or delicious meal.

The small village ofLennoxtown is a good location to visit all around. The place is quiet, well furnished and all appliances working fine. We loved the veranda as dining room. There a good restaurant nearby. No problem for car parking.
