Biggar is a small historic market town in south Lanarkshire in Scotland situated between the Borders Region and the Clyde Valley on the northern side of the Southern Uplands, 14 miles south-east of Lanark. The town follows the course of a Roman road and has a medieval layout with a long broad market place in the centre. The Battle of Biggar was fought here in 1297 when William Wallace defeated Edward of England, the town was awarded royal burgh status in 1451 and grew as an important place hosting regular cattle markets and developing industries in brewing and textiles. Biggar is a popular tourist destination and an ideal base for touring southern Scotland, it has hotels, b&b’s, many interesting locally-run shops, award winning restaurant, cafes, pubs, a fitness and leisure centre and the Jungless Fun Café soft play centre for children. Historically interesting buildings include Biggar Kirk built in 1546 which is one of the last pre-Reformation churches in Scotland, the Moat Park Heritage Centre, the Gasworks Museum, the Albion Motor Museum, the Gladstone Court Museum which recreates a Victorian street, the Victorian puppet theatre and the 17th century Greenhill Covenanters House which is a farmhouse containing displays of the signing of the National Covenant, the civil war and the killing times.
