Bothwellhaugh is another "lost" Lanarkshire mining village. It was located where Strathclyde Park is now.

More information on Bothwellhaugh can be found here

In Strathclyde Park today there is a memorial cairn to the village. It can be found just opposite M&D's "Theme" park.

And on the other side is the plaque commemorating the war dead:
