Bothwell’s traditional Main Street is a charming assortment of red sandstone buildings where churches, homes and businesses are interspersed with shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. In addition to a Co-op supermarket, there are convenience stores, family butchers, bakers, a pharmacy, post office, newsagents, hairdressers, and other services. Alternative shopping centres, and a choice of supermarkets,can be found within half an hour’s walk in Uddingston, home of the celebrated Tunnock’s Tearoom and Bakery. An even greater variety can be found in Hamilton, three miles to the south.
The area’s outdoor amenities are outstanding. Immediately to the north of Bothwellbank, pleasant woodland walks along the Clyde lead to Bothwell Castle, and a footbridge crosses the river to the David Livingstone Memorial Centre and Park with its excellent children’s playgrounds. Bothwell Castle Golf Club, a mature 18-hole parkland course with full clubhouse facilities including a snooker room,lies conveniently between Bothwell and Uddingston. Nearby Strathclyde Country Park, with its mixture of woodlands, wildlife habitats and water sports, is one of Scotland’s most popular outdoor attractions, while the area’s indoor fitness facilities include a swimming pool and gym in Blantyre, and a David Lloyd Club in Hamilton.
