Crawford Castle

Crawford is a village and parish in the very south of Lanarkshire, adjacent to the border with Dumfriesshire.

The village is close to the source of the River Clyde and the M74 motorway, fifty miles south-east of Glasgow and fifty-three miles north-west of Carlisle. It has a population of around 300 people, two hotels, a public house, a village shop and Post Office, church, and a school.

The village is close to an old Roman road and has links with Sir William Wallace (see Crawford Castle). Recent archaeological excavations have shown that this was the site of a Roman fort between AD 80 and AD 140 housing perhaps 300 soldiers.
