Located about 10 miles south of the City Centre. Started life as a small village but was named Scotland's first New Town in 1947, and was subsequently developed to cope with the population overspill caused by [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII The Blitz]]. As a result, it was considered quite a trendy place to live in TheSixties, however it's since become a bit tired and worn out. Nicknamed "Polomint City" for its proliferation of roundabouts and home to Scotland's largest shopping centre. A few famous residents over the years have been [[Series/GameofThrones Kate]] [[Film/{{Prometheus}} Dickie]], TV presenters Lorraine Kelly, Kirsty Young and Aztec Camera frontman Roddy Frame.

A New Town in North Lanarkshire. Childhood home (not quite birthplace, they moved when he was six months old) of CraigFerguson, who once told an Edinburgh audience that the key to understanding Cumbernauld is that the residents want to move to Glasgow.

Immediately west of the City Centre. Made up of lots of lovely Georgian townhouses that have since been converted into plush offices, so very few people actually live there.
