Biggar is a historic market town and former burgh in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is situated in the Southern Uplands, near the River Clyde, around 30 miles from Edinburgh along the A702. The closest towns are Lanark and Peebles, and as such Biggar serves a wide rural area. In 2007 a group of Biggar residents launched the Carbon Neutral Biggar project, with the stated aim of becoming the first carbon neutral town in Scotland. The launch of the project, covered in both local and national media, took place at the town's annual eco forum. It remains a royal burgh since 1451, Biggar still retains its medieval layout. The main street is lined with centuries-old houses and Biggar Kirk dates from the 16th century. Biggar has associations with various historical figures, including William Wallace and Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Biggar's main street still reflects its past as a market town and is home to a variety of independent shops, including an award-winning grocer, a famous ice-cream and chocolate shop and an award-winning fish and chip shop. The town also has a selection of restaurants, bistros and cafes. Visitors can get a bus to Biggar directly from Edinburgh, Peebles and Lanark which has the closest train station. Biggar is around 30 miles from Edinburgh and is accessible via the A721, while Glasgow is around an hour's drive away.
Recreation / leisure
One of the town's main attractions is a world famous Victorian puppet theatre. Biggar also has more museums per head than any other town in Scotland. They include the Moat Park Heritage Centre, Gladstone Court Museum, Greenhill Covenanters Museum, and the Biggar Gasworks Museum, the only preserved gas works in Scotland. The town hosts an annual arts festival, the Biggar Little Festival, every October. Another yearly event is the Biggar Bonfire, an ancient custom that takes place on Hogmanay and dates back to pagan times.
Nearby, the popular walk up Tinto Hill gives commanding views over the Clyde Valley. Little Sparta, the garden created by artist and poet Ian Hamilton Finlay and containing over 270 of his artworks, can be found close by in the Pentland Hills and is open to the public during the summer season.
