Historic Uplawmoor, associated for centuries with the Barony of Caldwell and the Mure family, is still a vibrant community today, although now bereft of many of the services once to be found there. Farming has always been of great importance locally.
The Pollick Glen and burn is a local wildlife site of beech dominated woodland with a path network and a waterfall or spot.
The old hamlet of Shillford lies nearby on Lochlibo Road.
Caldwell station opened on 27 March 1871. The station was renamed Uplawmoor after the closure of the Uplawmoor station on the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway on 2 April 1962. The station closed permanently on 7 November 1966. A number of local campaigns to re-open the station have so far been unsuccessful. It has now become overgrown and only a platform remains to show that Uplawmoor actually had a railway line.
