Stewartfield Loch has a number of water sports, with qualified instructors to help you along if you fancy getting a bit wet;

There are 3 golf courses for those of the competitive type.

To get a taste of what East Kilbride was like before it became the very large business town that it is today, visit the old village, with its old cobbled streets, which is now home to a host of independent boutiques and eateries.

Nightlife is very limited, however you are but a stone's throw from Glasgow, where the night life thrives 7 nights a week.

Give East Kilbride a try, you won't be disappointed.
