Hamilton is located 12 miles southeast of Glasgow on the south bank of the River Clyde. It was named after the 1st Duke of Hamilton, whose family made their mark on the town with the construction of several notable landmarks, some of which are still standing today. Hamilton Palace, which was built in 1695, was deemed to be one of the grandest houses in Britain at the time and was said to be admired by Queen Victoria, but unfortunately it was demolished in 1927 and it is now home to the Hamilton Palace Sports Grounds.
More can be learnt about the former Hamilton Palace at the Low Park Museum, and those with an interest in the history of the Hamilton family can take a guided tour of the Hamilton Mausoleum, which unlike their former dwelling, still remains intact. The Hamilton family’s legacy continues with Chatelherault Country House and Park, which was originally built in 1732 as a hunting lodge for the Duke. Today it is still fully accessible to the public, who can take a tour of the main house, followed by a stroll around the vast grounds and woodlands. It is also a great area for fishing, golf and range of other outdoor activities.
