University of West of Scotland

I wonder what the miners would have made of this? Built on the site of the former Dixon’s Colliery Number 2 at High Blantyre, the modern University of the West of Scotland is by far Blantyre’s most expensive building.

Powered entirely by renewable wind energy from the turbines on Blantyre Muir, the University at Hamilton Technology Park is eco friendly and aims to give students of all ages the best possible education and opportunities in life.

To those who have moved away from Blantyre, this may even be a surprise that this building exists. Its tucked out the way, but the campus attracts students from all over Lanarkshire. A state of the art, impressive building and is putting High Blantyre on the map.
