Solicitors in Lanarkshire


Lanarkshire is a county in central Scotland, in an area known as the Lowlands. Glasgow, the nearest major city, was formerly included as part of Lanarkshire, although today it is its own administrative centre. It is bordered by Stirlingshire to the north, West Lothian to the east and Peeblesshire to the southeast. Key settlements include the county town of Hamilton, the historic centre of Lanark, East Kilbride, Motherwell and Airdrie. Today the area of Lanarkshire has a population of well over 600,000 inhabitants, representing over 12% of the Scottish population.


Lanarkshire prides itself of its excellent infrastructure and transport links with Scotland’s two major cities: Glasgow and Edinburgh. The region accounts for 12% of Scotland’s total exports, which is reflected in the strong role played by manufacturing and distribution which account for 20% of the local economy. Other key sectors include finance and IT and tourism. Tourists come to Lanarkshire to experience theme parks and nature, as well as to enjoy New Lanark, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to a beautifully preserved 18th century mill village.
