Museums and Art Galleries in Lanarkshire

new-lanark-river-clyde

The county of Lanarkshire is split into North and South and surrounded by many counties - Stirling, Falkirk, West Lothian, Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, East Ayrshire, East Renfrewshire and Glasgow. The county is probably most famous for The New Lanark World Heritage Site which was built in 1785 by David Dale, a Scottish industrialist, to take advantage of the water power of the Falls of Clyde, to spin cotton much of which is commemorated at Summerlee Heritage Park.

  • There are a mass of Museums throughout the Lanarkshire area, maybe because Lanarkshire does have plenty of heritage but is not an area of Scotland that is visited as one of the more glamorous locations. In addition to those linked below, Private House Stays has identified the following for your consideration: The Carmichael Visitor Centre, The Crawfordjohn Heritage Venture, Gretna Hall Old Blacksmith's shop, Hunter House Museum, The John Hastie Museum, The Leadhills Miners Libruary, The Low Parks Museum, The Moat Park Heritage Centre, The Shotts Heritage Centre and The West Kilbride Museum
