Tunnock's Bakery, Uddingston

A small commuter town in South Lanarkshire, Uddingston lies 4 miles (6.5 km) southwest of Coatbridge, between the settlements of Tannochside to the north and Bothwell to the south. It lies between the M74 motorway and the River Clyde. On the banks of the Clyde lie the ruined remains of Bothwell Castle. A former market town, it developed at a major road junction in the 18th century and in association with coal mining. Uddingston Cross was for a time a terminus for Glasgow's electric trams. Since 1890 Uddingston has been the home of Tunnock's Bakery which manufactures the famous tea cakes and caramel wafer biscuits.
