Leadhills : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

At an altitude of 411m, the main activity of this village was lead mining; rows of miners' houses face each other. Leadhills is known for its library founded in 1741 and is the birthplace of Allan Ramsay (1686-1758); the author of The Gentle Shepherd (and father of a famous portrait painter) was a poet who pioneered the use of the Scots language.
