An active past and present
Visiting North Lanarkshire is about getting active and heading outside to enjoy the beauty of the country parks and natural scenery. It’s about delving into the area’s past to find out about how industry and the people of Lanarkshire have shaped the county into what it is today. It’s about sampling local produce and catching your dinner.
The county features Scotland’s only indoor tropical rainforest, home to over 70 different species. Or visit the Roman remains of the Antonine Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built around AD142 to mark the northern frontier of the Roman Empire, which was, at the time, the biggest engineering project Scotland had ever seen. Alternatively, relax and play a round at one of North Lanarkshire’s many gold clubs or gaze up at the stars at the Airdrie Observatory. Whatever your interests, you won’t be bored.
