Located to the northeast of Glasgow City and surrounded by five more councils, North Lanarkshire best showcases urban and rural Scotland in the backdrop of history, dating back to the Roman era and before. The small landlocked region is home to thriving towns like Motherwell, Cumbernauld, Coatbridge, Airdrie, and Wishaw, apart from dozens of tiny villages and country towns. Cumbernauld, the most populace city, is famous for the Antonine Wall—the turf fortification built by Romans between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Clyde. It is also home to the Black Loch, Dullatur Golf Club and North Calder Water, a beautiful river flowing between the Black Loch and the River Clyde. Motherwell, the region's capital, houses several parks, such as the Strathclyde Country Park and Loch, the M&D's Amusement Park, and the Dalziel Park, aside from the fifteenth century Dalzell House situated on the banks of the River Clyde. The city of Coatbridge has history dating back 3000 years and houses the Summerlie Museum of Scottish Industrial Life. Rest of the towns and villages in North Lanarkshire feature an affluence of historical churches, operas, boxing and sports, gardens, golf courses, theaters, shopping, and restaurants. The perfect confluence of historical towns and enchanting countryside, North Lanarkshire has plenty to keep all kinds of tourists entertained.
