This afternoon, I am posting a selection of library images (taken during winter time) of Cumbernauld and environs.

Cumbernauld is a post 1950s 'new town' close to Glasgow with population of 50,000. The town has won a number of awards including Beautiful Scotland’s Small City. The name Cumbernauld is derived from the Gaelic comar nan allt meaning ‘meeting of the waters’.

Like a number of towns and villages between Glasgow and Edinburgh,Cumbernauld evolved from a second century AD fort on the Roman Antonine Wall. There remain many vestiges of the Roman presence in the region.
