East Kilbride

East Kilbride was the first of the five Scottish New Towns built as a population overflow for the city of Glasgow. It contains many areas of housing built for the council in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. It also contains 13 tower blocks. It is Scotland's sixth largest town by population size, and the largest of the country's new towns.

East Kilbride is located on high ground, about 15km (9 miles) south of Glasgow, and 8km (5 miles) west of Hamilton. The Rotten Calder (River) flows north towards the Clyde on the east side of East Kilbride.
