House Removals East Kilbride
East Kilbride is the largest town in South Lanarkshire, and also the first designated ‘New Town’ of Scotland in 1947. Areas were becoming cramped, so East Kilbride was erected to house people moving from nearby Glasgow.
East Kilbride is championed for its parks and outdoor spaces. Calderglen Country Park has a choice of walks, through woodland that contains the ruins of both Calderglen Castle and Craigneith Castle. James Hamilton Heritage Park contains a man made lake with water sports facilities and is overlooked by Mains Castle. Langlands Moss is a local nature reserve, a favourite for families who enjoy the outdoors – and wildlife!
