Crawford, South Lanarkshire

Crawford is a village in South Lanarkshire, Scotland.

Crawford is close to the source of the River Clyde and the M74 motorway, fifty miles south east of Glasgow and fifty-three miles north west of Carlisle. It has a population of around 300 people, two hotels, a public house, a village shop and Post Office, church, and a school.

The village is close to an old Roman road and has links with Sir William Wallace (see Crawford Castle). Recent archaeological excavations have shown that this was the site of a Roman fort between 80 AD and 140 AD housing perhaps 300 soldiers.
