National Museum of Rural Life
|[Allotment at the National Museum of Rural Life]|
Perhaps it's in an unlikely location, but the National Museum of Rural Life provides much-needed contrast to East Kilbride's concrete jungle. The attraction comprises a excellent, modern exhibition hall and a 1950's style working farm, with rural paths (or tractor rides if you prefer) linking the two. There are usually plenty of farm animals to see around the restored farmhouse, including newborn lambs and calves at the right time of year.
