Motherwell

... welcomes you to The Clyde Valley, Scotland. Enjoy your visit.


Strathclyde Country Park.

Motherwell is one of the major towns in The Clyde Valley, and is largely known for it's heavy industry. As well as being one of the main areas for steel production, Motherwell has a sparkling variety of leisure and heritage attractions.

The origins of the district's name are not entirely clear. The name Motherwell may have come from either the ancient "Lady Well" in the area or from the Gaelic "the level place above water".

Though Motherwell is known for it's iron and steel industries, it has not always been an industrial centre. Like many towns in The Clyde Valley, up until the end of the seventeenth century the primary activity in the district was agriculture.

Motherwell continues to move on, with the focus on industry in the area rapidly moving from iron and steel towards electronics and customer service call centres.
