Kirkmuirhill is a village in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. It borders Blackwood, near Lanark and is sited near Junction 9 of the M74 motorway. Its postal sector is ML11 9. There is a single primary school Bent Primary on the outskirts of the village, but a large proportion of pupils also attend Blackwood Primary School in the neighbouring village of Blackwood. There is also the denominational St. John's Primary there, which is a Roman Catholic primary school which has Kirkmuirhill within its catchment. There are no high schools in the village. When children reach secondary education, they normally attend high school in Lesmahagow, or Holy Cross Hamilton in the case of Catholic pupils from St. John's. Traditional industry in the village was mining, but this has long since declined. Unemployment is high with drug dealing and taking on the increase. Kirkmuirhill has some shops and a petrol station, but most people prefer to travel the distance and go to Hamilton or Glasgow.
