Trains to East Kilbride

Until the arrival of rail, small farming communities made up the majority of East Kilbride's population. The opening of the station in 1868 sparked a new era of growth, and the pace increased following East Kilbride's designation as a New Town after WW2. In the intervening decades the population has swelled from 3,000 to over 70,000, and today the area is a large town whose station serves commuters to Glasgow Central, only 11 miles to the north. The modern town centre's key attractions include the large EK shopping and entertainment complex, and the listed Dollan Baths leisure centre. Further out, there are pleasant walks in Calderglen Country Park to the south and a great watersports lake at James Hamilton Heritage Park to the north. The station itself is a little distance from the centre in East Kilbride Village, which was the heart of the old farming hamlet and still offers a range of restaurants, cafes and pubs.
