The village contains the entrance to Chatelherault Country Park and Hamilton Golf Club. The railway station was re-opened in late 2005 and named Chatelherault (the original Ferniegair station had closed in 1917). The M74 motorway passes a short distance north of the village, with the River Clyde further north from that.
