Hamilton is the main town in South Lanarkshire, situated just over 10 miles from Glasgow and 35 miles from Edinburgh on the south bank of the River Clyde.  It is the third largest town in Scotland.

Chatelherault, their former hunting lodge towers over the town from its location in Chatelherault Country Park, where there are some lovely walks.
