Living in North Lanarkshire

A place for life

Lying just to the north east of Glasgow, North Lanarkshire covers 47,648 hectares, reaching from Stepps to Harthill and the Kilsyth Hills to the Clyde. 324,000 people call the region home, and many of them are based in the area’s major towns of Airdrie, Bellshill, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld, Kilsyth, Motherwell, Shotts and Wishaw.

North Lanarkshire enjoys some of the best transport links in Scotland. Glasgow is within easy reach by both road and rail from much of the region, putting the rest of Scotland – and beyond – in easy reach.

Add to this a huge choice of homes and places to live (from busy towns to more peaceful locations), great schools, and all the attractions and amenities you’d expect from thriving modern towns, and it’s easy to see what makes North Lanarkshire so attractive.

It’s a great place to be. And a great place to serve.
