Things to see and do in Hamilton
While the centre of Glasgow and all its cultural and leisure attractions is just 10 miles away, there are lots of great things you can do in your free time even closer to home. The area’s particularly good if you love exploring natural spots, thanks to places like Chatelherault Country Park, Baron’s Haugh and Calderglen Country Park.
Strathclyde Country Park is right on the edge of town and perfect for walks, while you can also get involved with water sports here too. Don’t miss M&D’s Scotland’s Theme Park if you prefer white-knuckle thrills. Meanwhile, the David Livingstone Centre, Bothwell Road Park and Dalzell House are further local draws all worth a visit.
There are plenty of good schools in and around the town centre, with Glenlee Primary School a strong central option. It’s enjoyed some good inspection reports by Education Scotland in recent years, with the same going for Woodside Primary, close to Hamilton Central station.
If you have older children, Hamilton Grammar School is close to the heart of town just off Union Street. Meanwhile, Holy Cross High School is another central option across the road from Hamilton Academical’s New Douglas Park football ground.
Hamilton transport links
In addition to trains and buses, South Lanarkshire Council also runs community transport schemes aimed at helping people who can’t access regular services, such as the MyBus initiative. It also encourages green travel plans across local communities.
Glasgow Airport is just over 15 miles away for business trips or holidays abroad, while the M74 motorway passes to the east of town. The M8 is also close by, which you can use to head over to Glasgow.
The Hamilton property scene
Hamilton has benefitted from its proximity to Glasgow, which continues to grow in importance as a cultural hub. Property prices are on the up, thanks to great houses you can find in places like Meikle Earnock on the south-western outskirts of town, which offers attractive 3 and 4 bedroom homes on the edge of beautiful open countryside.
Whether that sounds ideal or you’d prefer to be a few miles east on the outskirts of Motherwell or on the edge of East Kilbride in the opposite direction, ensure you get the best deal possible on your new home with our latest offers. Our Movemaker scheme could save you a tidy sum on estate agent fees, while we could even act as your guaranteed buyer with our Part Exchange offer.
