A small town, which nestles at the foot of the Kilsyth Hills.
The Main Street contains an interesting variety of shops, ranging from the traditional fresh Fish Shop owned by three generations of the same family, to the recently opened
Restaurants, a host of excellent Butchers and Baker and the Kelvin Valley Property Shop.
The town has a variety of buildings and streets reflecting the history of weaving, mining and revival together with the nearby Battle of Kilsyth.
To the east of the shopping area, lies the Burngreen with its Bandstand and
gardens. Past the Library and Health Centre is an excellent facility for children - a play park and a traffic school, where young cyclists can practice on a mini-road system that's free from motorists.
To the west of the town, at the foot of the Airdrie road, is Kilsyth's Swimming Pool. As well as the main pool, there is a health suite and a leisure pool which
is ideal for children. The pool is user-friendly for the disabled and has a pool-side hoist.
On the first Saturday of each month, there is a Farmer's Market held in the Main Street which brings a variety of stalls and products to the town and adds to the already bustling shopping area.
