Lanark Christmas Markets

Volunteers from Scotland's Festival of History also organise Scotland's largest continental style Christmas Market, traditionally held on the third Saturday of November.

The town's broad High Street is closed off for the day and is taken over by almost 100 stall holders, heritage children's fairground, entertainers and Santa Claus.

Santa in the High Street

The 2005-2009 events attracted more than 13,000 visitors with stall holders from across Scotland and northern England. On sale were specialist foods, drink, crafts and gifts not just from Scotland but also from four continents. The fairground included a restored 1947 Carousel and a ferris wheel, while Santa arrived in a sleigh pulled by reindeer.
