Lanark has had several important figures in its long history but most notably William Wallace, the famous Scottish patriot who killed the English Sheriff, Haselrigg to avenge the death of his wife. With this act he sprang into the National conscience and started the First War of Independence. There are a variety of landmarks across the area. The World Heritage site of New Lanark is just a short drive away. Famous for its natural beauty New Lanark is a small 18th century village set in a sublime Scottish landscape where the philanthropist and Utopian idealist Robert Owen moulded a model industrial community in the early 19th century. The village is still a thriving community with a Hotel and Visitor Centre.
Lanark once had its own Racecourse near the Loch which was a bustling scene in its heyday and home of the Silver Bell, which is one of the oldest sporting trophies in the world and is still held to this day. It was also the venue for Scotland’s first ever air show in 1910 where over 250,000 people came to watch the spectacle.
Lanark now has a population of 8,500 with a well-regarded High School, three Primary Schools a bustling High Street, Retail Park, Sports Centre and a good selection of Super Markets.
