Get away from it all near Glasgow.

BEST WESTERN Eglinton Arms Hotel is just 8 miles away from Glasgow, in the sleepy village setting of Eaglesham on the outskirts of East Kilbride Newtown. Just a short drive away from Glasgae, you'll have Central Scotland on your doorstep!

Surrounded by Lush Greenery, with the village stream (The Orry) running past the door, this charming 19th Century coaching inn is a true rural retreat. After major refurbishment, the hotel has enjoyed a wee make-over, but still retains the charm of the original inn building. Located just off the M77 motorway (which links Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport), the hotel is an ideal place to start or extend your holiday, or to simply spend a relaxing night on your way to an overseas meeting.

Thank you for your kind feedback.

Ah, I am so pleased that you continue to enjoy your stays with us. Yes, the position of the hotel next to the parkland [called the Orry] really helps with the rural feel of the hotel and yet so close to the moterway routes. Thanks for taking the time to post your comments.
