About the neighbourhood
The Church at The Old Manse is a renovated church that used to satisfy the spiritual needs of the workforce of Wilsontown Ironworks and the later coal works. As the works went into decline the population moved away the building was no longer required. The church has recently been converted into a luxury holiday let providing easy access to the forest walks and bridle trails that are part of the scheduled monument that celebrate the ironworks.
Getting around
We are a 45 minute drive to both Edinburgh and Glasgow, while being near numerous train stations that give rail access to the cities should you prefer not to drive into the centre. We are in the country, but are only 15 minutes drive from the M8 Motorway and local buses service both Lanark and Livingston.
