So you’re out for a bit of fun near the Clyde River and wondering how to spend the day? Pay a visit to Cambuslang near Glasgow. As many places in Scotland, there are a marked difference in the two seemingly different worlds found there. A collection of modern attractions and historical pieces of long ago coupled with nature in a pure form; this is Cambuslang.
It has a population averaging 24,500 which often leads to the title, “The Largest Village in Scotland.” The city has been prosperous for a very long time, going back to agriculture, coal, iron and limestone. These marketable resources were usually transported by a turnpike road coming from Glasgow and then as technology improved, a railway and finally the M74 system.
Fortunately, if you’re interested in visiting, you’re not restricted to authentic travel means like horse and buggy; there are faster options such as the Ferry between Troon and Cairnryan, Northern Ireland to Scotland. Glasgow’s train stations in the city center are on Glasgow Centre and Glasgow Queen Street. If travelling by air, there are many flights arriving daily at Glasgow which is only 48 km from the city centre. Don’t forget to emulate the iconic Scottish thriftiness by getting a 50% discount on the rail travel by showing your flight documents.
Depending on how much luxury or frugality you’re willing to adopt, there are a wide variety of accommodations to be had from the Holiday Inn Express at Glasgow Airport, the Uplawmoor Hotel – a quaint little inn or the Acorn Hotel, the newest hotel in the city centre.
If you’re fancying a tour, there are a number to choose from such as Horizon Travel’s Whiskey Tour (this IS Scotland, remember) that covers the city, history and traditions, beer (seeing a pattern?) and beauty of the land. Murder Mystery and motorcycle tours are also a popular option. When something quiet and peaceful is the plan, a visit to the Clyde Valley is a great way to unwind and relax. Scotland’s largest park, Clyde Murishiel, Mugdock Country Park and for something a little livelier, Scotland’s first theme park, M&D’s (no archery contests or “Fighting the English” rides but there is Crazy Golf!)
When it’s time to wind down and have something to eat, Cambuslang doesn’t disappoint with the variety of pubs and restaurants to dine at. Famer’s Markets offer the fresh produce for making your own special meal and you can sample in Glasgow the offerings of Indian cuisine that have led to it being called the “Curry Capital of Britain”. In Cambuslang, you can visit Carrigans or the Old Oak Inn at Rutherglen.
If you want to see markets and mouthwatering meals or visit rolling hills and heritage on display; Cambuslang, Scotland should be your holiday destination.
