East Kilbride is the largest town in South Lanarkshire and home to Scotland’s largest undercover shopping centre, an absolute must for any shopaholic and probably one of the very few shopping centres offering ice skating in an ice rink within. Away from shopping, there are plenty of attractions such as the National Museum of Rural Life to experience what it’s like on a farm and the rural way of life and the James Hamilton Heritage Park with a 16 acre loch providing scenic and tranquil surroundings with water sports on offer such as canoeing and windsurfing. The town may seem remote but is only ten miles south of Glasgow city centre.
