The site of the palace itself (HP) is at the centre of the map
on the left, occupying a favoured position on the fertile river
plain. On the right, the same map is used to show, against a modern
background of roads and built-up areas, the strip which forms a
simulated 'aerial' view of the estate landscape as it probably existed
in the late 19th century.
Reading from north to south on the left-hand map, the other buildings
and monuments which have an association with the history of the
palace, and which for the most part appear on this website, are
as follows: 1. Bothwell Parish Church; 2. Hamilton Palace Colliery
(site); 3. Nethertoun Motte; 4. Hamilton Mausoleum; 5. Hamilton
Museum; 6. Riding School; 7. Collegiate Church (site); 8. Hamilton
Old Parish Church; 9. Bent Cemetery; 10. Barncluith; 11. Ch‚telherault;
12. Cadzow Castle; and 13. Hamilton High Parks.
