Found within the vicinity of Biggar, Lanark and Peebles,
you'll find plenty to do throughout your stay at Shieldhill Castle! Biggar is a pleasant town in a rural setting
dominated by Tinto Hill (712m). The town has a worthwhile museum and a famous puppet theatre. It's also known for the poet Hugh MacDiarmid, who lived near here for nearly 30 years.
Below the market town of Lanark,
in an attractive gorge by the River Clyde, is the World Heritage Site of New Lanark
– an intriguing collection of restored mill buildings and warehouses.
