South Lanarkshire
Elvanfoot


Population not known

This picturesque village is arguably the first on the River Clyde due to its proximity to its source.

Only a mile from the M74, it has easy access to the central belt and northern England.

History

The village grew around a rail junction serving the mining areas of Leadhills and Wanlockhead. The 'Navvies Graveyard' near the Clyde Bridge commemorates 37 workers who died while building the Caledonian Railway line.
