Day Tour Eaglesham Scotland

Saturday, July 05, 2008

Today I went to Eaglesham.

Eaglesham is a lovely little conservation village in East Renfrewshire, near Glasgow and Strathaven. Eaglesham takes its name from the French world "eglise" (church), earning this as a result of its apparent abundance of places of worship in the past. In more recent times, however, this has shrunk to only two congregations: one Roman Catholic and one Presbyterian (Church of Scotland).So Eaglesham is a small community with churches, local shops and services, farms... One of them is called the Polnoon Farm, and from there you can see the remains of the Polnoon Castle.

However you can also find some interesting pieces of architecture in Eaglesham.

A local farmer told us that many people of the village were employed in cotton mills and in agricultural fields.

This is the Freemasons lodge 1265

There are also green areas within the village.

The farms, with beautiful views and green landscapes, and the ruins.
