Clarkston is a suburban town in East Renfrewshire set in the Central Lowlands of Scotland. It lies 4.7mi east of Barrhead, 7.2mi east-southeast of Paisley and 3.9mi northwest of East Kilbride, at the southwest of the Greater Glasgow conurbation. It is a small, affluent dormitory town with a population of 14,944. The locality borders the other Eastwood suburbs of Giffnock, Busby and Netherlee, and is served by Clarkston railway station on the Glasgow South Western Line branch to East Kilbride.On 21 October 1971, the shopping centre was the scene of the Clarkston explosion, which killed 22 people and injured around 100. A plaque on the site commemorates the event. In 2006, plans were, despite numerous objections, approved to build a public house by Clarkston toll, putting an end to the "dry area" which had made Clarkston unique.Greenbank Garden, a National Trust for Scotland property, is located on the outskirts of Clarkston.
