Towns & Villages

    Cumbernauld is one of Scotland’s best-known New Towns and was created in the 1950s as a population overspill for Glasgow.

    When Cumbernauld town centre was built it was regarded as a triumph of modernist architecture. However, in more recent times, the modernist design has come in for criticism from some quarters.

    Nevertheless the town boasts a number of attractive green spaces. To the south of the town, Palacerigg Country Park has nature trails, a tree-top walkway and a zoo, making for a great family day out. Cumbernauld House Park and Cumbernauld Glen in the heart of Cumbernauld are ideal recreational spaces as well as being a natural haven for wildlife. Cumbernauld Outdoor Activity Centre offers a range of leisure activities from archery to paintball and 4x4 driving.
