Cleghorn covers a large area and is part of Lanark in South Lanarkshire, is in the catchment area of Lanark Grammar School. Cleghorn Village is a small close community with about 250–300 residents, and under 50 houses.

The Mouse Water runs through Cleghorn, coming down from the hills of the village of Forth, through Carstairs Village.

People have been staying in the area of Cleghorn for over 500 years, from wealthy landowners to the Romans, who built roads and forts around the area.

The village of Cleghorn has only been about since the start of the last century, although there was a house near where the village now sits. The house was known as Hagholm house, which the new main through road of the village has been named after.

Cleghorn Glen and Cleghorn Bridge are sites named after the village and are close to, but not in, it. The walkways are made up of ancient woodlands, and have great views as it winds its way from Cleghorn Bridge, to Cartland Bridge just outside Lanark. The woodlands are protected, and designated a national nature reserve who protect and care for Clyde Valley Woodlands. Other places of interest are Newmills Fishery and foundation structures from the Roman invasion period. There is also a level crossing at nearby Cleghorn Junction.
