Wiston is a very small hamlet in Lanarkshire . South Lanarkshire is a rich mixture of urban and rural, stretching from Glasgow suburbs south to the open moorland of the Leadhills, via the valley of the River Clyde. Wiston is just an hours drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

 

An area steeped in history, many of the towns in the regions have historical landmarks that are worth a visit. The main attraction is New Lanark a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is an 18th-century cotton mill village first built by pioneering social reformer Robert Owen, which has been restored .

Other popular historical attractions include the Bothwell Castle, Scotland's finest 13th-century fortification, the Museum of Scottish Country Life at Kittochside, near to the new town of East Kilbride, Hamiltons Chatelherault Country Park which has as its centrepiece the magnificent early 18th-century hunting lodge of the Dukes of Hamilton, and the Leadhills and Wanlockhead Steam Railway where visitors can ride on the narrow gauge trains.

The old market town of Biggar is known as Scotland's Museum Town, with its seven unusual museums.

Since the southern part of Lanarkshire was not heavily industrialized its scenic beauty has been well preserved.
