East Kilbride is Scotland’s sixth largest town with a population of over seventy thousand and is regarded as Scotland’s most successful “new town”. The original Kilbride was a small rural Lanarkshire village with a history going back many centuries. The ‘Kil’ in Kilbride comes from the Gaelic word call (or cill) meaning a religious cell – which was a feature of the way in which the more monastic Celtic church tended to develop. (Unlike the Roman church which was more diocesan in structure). So the origins of Kilbride were in the religious cell associated with Bride or Bridget. The addition of East to the name came in order to distinguish the village from it’s Ayrshire neighbour of the same name (now West Kilbride). That’s being said, there is another East Kilbride – a distance away on the Outer Hebrides.
In the 1940’s East Kilbride was one of the villages chosen to become “New Towns,” areas with a special development status. “The Village” – the original East Kilbride – still exists and its pleasant “old” atmosphere can still be enjoyed as can its numerous small shops and variety of eating places, but today East Kilbride is one of the most successful of the New Towns. A place with a thriving industry base, excellent housing of all types, superb shopping and excellent leisure facilities, it is also host to the annual East Kilbride Half Marathon. In just over 50 years East Kilbride has grown from a small rural village to become the sixth largest town in Scotland. The town is situated just 10 miles from Glasgow and many of the East Kilbride residents moved from the city to the new town.
In terms of attracting industry, East Kilbride has an outstanding record. Modern industrial centres around the town house successful companies large and small, including Motorola, Rolls Royce, and Scottish Nuclear, while a modern bottling plant is home to Coca Cola Enterprises. The town has also become a shopping hub for the South Lanarkshire area with the Plaza and Olympia Shopping Centres in East Kilbride town centre being expanded with Centre West to become one of the largest indoor shopping malls in Europe. In addition the busy Kingsgate Retail Park provides the opportunity to visit Sainsburys, Homebase, the biggest sports shop in Scotland, Boots, Curry’s, Argos Extra and several other retail outlets. Just across the road from Kingsgate is the expanding Nerston retail area with B&Q, Comet and PC World. Morrison’s supermarkets (once Safeway) have large stores at Lindsayfield and Stewartfield while Sainsburys has taken over the former Safeway store in the Olympia Shopping Centre.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
