Visit Lesmahagow and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Lesmahagow, South Lanarkshire. The village of Lesmahagow stands on the West bank of the small River Nethan; evidence of prehistoric dwellers has been found at the quarry at Creamery Brae nearby.
Benedictine monks travelled from Kelso and established a priory on the lands here granted by David I in 1144; the monks of Lesmahagow became well known as pioneers of fruit-growing in the Clyde valley. After the Reformation, Lesmahagow became a centre for the Covenanters. David Steel, a farmer in the district at Skellyhill, was shot in 1686, and there is a monument that commemorates him at his farm. At Auchingelloch another monument recalls the sufferings of other Covenanters here.
