Lammingtoune
   LAMMINGTOUNE, a village, in the parish of Wandell and Lammingtoune, Upper ward of the county of Lanark, 6½ miles (S. W.) from Biggar; containing 122 inhabitants. It is situated on the eastern bank of the Clyde, and on the road from Biggar to Roberton. The place was formerly a market-town, a charter having been obtained from Charles I. to hold a weekly market here every Thursday, and two annual fairs, one on the 15th of June, and the other on the 22nd of October; but they have all been discontinued. The Lammingtoune burn, a tributary to the Clyde, flows on the south-west side of the village. In the vicinity is a fine old tower, built by a laird of Lammingtoune of the ancient family of Baillie; it is of considerable height, and the walls are of great thickness.
