Strathaven

South Lanarkshire | Town | ★★

[Common Green, Strathaven]

Drive south from Glasgow and Strathaven (pronounced "STRAY-ven") is one of the first attractive towns you'll reach after escaping the city suburbs. This historic market town retains a bustling feel and plenty of character, enhanced by narrow streets, a few independent shops and the Powmillon Burn flowing through the centre. Common Green - presumably the original market place - provides a natural focus for the settlement, while Strathaven Castle overlooks the south side. The nearby Spectacle E'e Falls are impressive after heavy rainfall, reached by a pleasant riverside amble which we feature separately (link below).
