North Lanarkshire

A village of North Lanarkshire, Dullatur is located 2 miles (3 km) northwest of Cumbernauld. Originally comprising Dullatur House (c.1740) and a pair of farmsteads at Wester Dullatur and Easter Dullatur, the village owes its development to the Edinburgh-Glasgow railway. The North British Railway Company opened a station here in 1876 and fine villas were developed at the same time, several of which were designed by the Glasgow-based architect Alexander 'Greek' Thompson (1817-75). The intention was to build a settlement for the middle-class to commute to Glasgow, although only half of the original scheme was realised. The railway station closed in 1967. This core of the village was designated a Conservation Area in 1974. The site of a Roman marching camp lies within the village, while sections of the Antonine Wall are located to the north and the remains of a Roman fort lies on the line of the wall a half-mile (1 km) to the west. The marching camp was excavated in 1998 prior to the development of new housing. Dullatur Golf Club operates two courses to the south; namely Dullatur Antonine and Dullatur Carrickstone. Cumbernauld Village lies a mile (1.5 km) to the southeast.
