Welcome to the Living in Uddingston website – an information resource and news platform, created by local residents to introduce our friendly and well-appointed town. We hope this site will be of interest to anyone moving to Glasgow or relocating to Edinburgh, searching for new homes in North and South Lanarkshire, or simply looking for a pleasant place to live in central Scotland.

Ten miles outside central Glasgow and an hour’s drive from the heart of Edinburgh, Uddingston offers a unique blend of commuter belt convenience, suburban refinement and rural friendliness. A thriving high street and extensive local amenities provide everything needed for modern life, with doctors’ surgeries and dentists alongside sports clubs and supermarkets. The towns and cities of central Scotland are close at hand, and the border with England is just 80 minutes away by car or train.


On this site, we consider Uddingston’s unique geography, its transport links and an exceptional variety of local amenities. We profile the housing stock across Uddingston’s four districts, each with its own identity and heritage, and we summarise education opportunities for the next generation of Uddingston residents. Finally, our News page brings you the latest news from Uddingston and Bothwell, including details of forthcoming housing developments and announcements about new awards to add to Uddingston's collection.
