East Kilbride is a large town in the South Lanarkshire region of Scotland. Its population numbers around 74,000, and it was designated a New Town in 1947. A commuter area for nearby Glasgow, the town is twinned with Ballerup in Denmark and Omagh in Northern Ireland.
The town has a long history that dates back to the Roman era, but it really grew into a thriving centre during the 19th century, due to much industrialisation. In 1947 it became Scotland’s first New Town, and much investment was ploughed into the area.
Modern day landmarks include a collection of shopping malls known as ‘The Centre’, the Dollan Aqua Centre, Hunter House museum and Whitelees Windfarm. East Kilbride is also home to football, rugby, tennis and American football clubs. A range of notable individuals come from the area, including TV personalities, sportsmen and musicians.
