The Clyde Valley town of Lanark is one of the oldest royal burghs in Scotland - and the train journey to it runs along one of Britain's most charming rail lines, Argyle Line. The station itself is located on Bannatyne Street and was opened in 1855; today it offers half hourly services to Glasgow Central, arriving in the city in just under an hour. If there's one thing Lanark has plenty of, it's history. In the 10th century it became the home to the first Scottish Parliament, and the St Nicholas Parish Church houses one of the oldest church bells in the world. Lanark was granted a royal charter in the 12th century, and the event is still commemorated over 800 years later: Lanimer Day, held every June, sees the town's 'merchants' checking the boundary stones and crowning a Lanimer Queen. Other highlights include Lanark Loch, Castlebank Park and the World Heritage Site of New Lanark.
