Biggar is a historic market town on the northern edge of the Southern Uplands. A royal burgh since 1451, Biggar still retains its medieval layout. The main street is lined with centuries-old houses and Biggar Kirk dates from the 16th century. Biggar has associations with various historical figures, including William Wallace and Bonnie Prince Charlie. The fictional Midculter, which features in Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles novels, is set here.
