A royal burgh since 1451, Biggar still retains its medieval layout. The main street is lined with centuries-old houses and Biggar Kirk dates from the 16th century. One of the town’s main attractions is a Victorian puppet theatre while the Biggar Bonfire is an ancient custom that takes place on Hogmanay.
