Cumbernauld is located in the heart of Central Scotland with both Glasgow and Edinburgh a short drive away. The town is the ninth most-populous locality in Scotland and the most populated town in North Lanarkshire. It is one of Scotland's best-known “New Towns” and was created in the 1950s as a population overspill for Glasgow. Cumbernauld's town centre was regenerated in the 1990s and includes what is now accepted as Britain's first shopping centre and the world's first multi-level covered town centre.
The town hosts an excellent array of shopping facilities in the form of large supermarkets, a shopping centre and two large retail parks. Cumbernauld is also fortunate to be blessed with an abundance of green spaces, both within and surrounding the town.
