Strathaven is a historic town in South Lanarkshire in Scotland situated 7 miles south-west of Hamilton in the valley of the Avon Water. The market town grew around its 12th century Strathaven or Avondale Castle, rebuilt in 1458 but abandoned during the 18th century and is currently a ruin. Strathaven developed into an important town holding weekly markets; it was created a burgh of barony in 1450. The town continued to prosper during the 19th century with its weaving and brewing industries. Strathaven was once a Covenanter stronghold and in 1679 was the site of the Battle of Drumclog, fought just outside Strathavon between government troops and resident Covenanters. Strathaven’s focal point is the pretty town green, where the markets were once held, it is a popular tourist destination and an ideal as a base for visiting the South Lanarkshire attractions, there is a selection of holiday accommodation, restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops. The picturesque town was home to the late Harry Lauder, his former house is a notable building known as ‘Lauder Ha’. Attractions include the John Hastie Museum with interesting displays of local history, Covenanting exhibits, pottery, porcelain and weaving. The Arts Centre is housed in the former Town Mill which was built in the 17th century. A hot-air balloon festival is an annual event held in town
