Eaglesham Conservation Village

Around 3114 live in the Conservation Village of Eaglesham.  It's located about 10 miles south of Glasgow, to the southeast of Newton Mearns and southwest of East Kilbride. 

Eaglesham is built around an area of common land called the Orry.  In the 17th century,  Eaglesham was a small market town.  Today's village was founded in 1769 by Alexander Montgomerie, 10th Earl of Eglinton. At one point, Eaglesham had a thriving handloom weaving industry and a cotton mill.  It has many listed buildings and the whole village is 'A' listed. 

Eaglesham is thought to be one of Scotland's first planned villages.
