Greygables is located on Montgomery Street in the Village, the oldest part of East Kilbride. The Village is home to some of the town’s most distinctive landmarks, such as the Old Parish Church clock tower and the loupin’ stane, used by riders to mount horses and carriages.
Montgomery Street is East Kilbride’s oldest thoroughfare, named after the family who were lairds of the estate – and many of the buildings here have interesting stories to tell. The off-licence was once the courthouse; next-door, in ‘The Airk’, a man called Tam Wilkie, a fiddler, once kept a menagerie of animals. Across the road was the old City of Glasgow Bank and the first Co-Op was located in the now-demolished Big Land. In the hall above, Willie Bright taught a night school, with pupils bringing their own candles.
Serving the community for over 50 years
In the 1950s, our building was a shared doctor’s and dentist’s surgery. After the doctors moved to the newly built Hunter Health Centre in the 1970s, it has operated solely as a dental practice. The first major modernisation took place in 1991, when Robbie and Patricia Thomson assumed ownership, and the practice was extended and upgraded further in 2013.
Michael and Alastair assumed ownership of Greygables in 2017 and have continued to modernise the practice to provide the excellent patient care for which Greygables has become renowned.
