Cumbernauld is a new town which lies at the centre of Scotland and is one of the major towns of the North Lanarkshire unitary authority. Its name derives from the Gaelic Cumar-nan-Alt, 'the Meeting of the Waters'. The possible reason for this name is due to the proximity of tributaries of the the rivers Forth and Clyde which lead to the major cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Cumbernauld is a vibrant and dynamic town in an area of natural beauty and with an energetic and young population.
