Now it's time to start walking and, as you head to where Market Place meets the main road you'll notice there are two stores on opposite corners, both selling similar stuff.
It's quite extraordinary in a town this size that the two "supermarkets", service stations and general store should be so close but, that's Bothwell.
The one on the south side is on the site of the White Hart Inn with a stone storehouse out the back dating from 1837.
The Bothwell Garage, on the north side, was once a general store only and dates from the 1890's
Next to one of them is the standout Castle Hotel, continuously licenced since 1829, making it one of Australia's oldest.
You will also notice while walking that the signposts are done in tartan to denote the Scots heritage.
