South Lanarkshire

A small village of South Lanarkshire, Drumclog lies in the valley of the Avon Water, 5 miles (8 km) east of Darvel and 6 miles (10 km) south of Strathaven. Originally comprising the rural farmtowns of Low and High Drumclog, the modern village developed close to a railway station which opened in 1905, but closed in 1939. Sand and gravel are quarried nearby and a mile (2 km) to the northwest near High Drumclog is a monument commemorating the Battle of Drumclog in 1679 at which the Covenanters defeated government forces under Graham of Claverhouse.
