South Lanarkshire is a municipal area in south-central Scotland, encompassing Clydesdale, the River Clyde Valley and the surrounding lowlands and highlands. It is located entirely within the historic county of Lanarkshire and stretches from the densely urbanized southern periphery of the Glasgow metropolitan area, where most of the population resides, to the extensive southern agricultural countryside.

Rutherglen is located about three miles south-east of Glasgow city center and can be considered a suburb of the city.
It gained rail connections with Glasgow and Motherwell in 1849 and later became part of Glasgow's streetcar network. The Clyde Gateway projects aim to reinvest in this region and create new business parks as well as make River Clyde accessible again in Rutherglen. To anyone traveling on the south side of Glasgow, Rutherglen may seem like little more than a name on road signs with a glimpse of town hall tower.
