Constituency Profile

The constituency of Eastwood is home to two of Scotland's best-performing state schools. Two of its secondaries, Williamwood and St Ninian's, have, for more than a decade, been rated within the top three.

The local authority covering the area is East Renfrewshire, which was formed in 1996. It employs more than 3,000 people and delivers services to nearly 90,000 residents. The area boasts the UK's largest onshore wind farm. Whitelee, on Eaglesham Moor, which with 215 turbines is the second largest in Europe. Eastwood features the popular Edwardian park Rouken Glen which has a boating pond, play and skate boarding parks, a large waterfall, woodland walks and a walled garden.

Historically, this seat had returned Conservative MPs, until 1997 when it was won by Jim Murphy, later leader of the Scottish Labour party. At the Scottish Parliament, Labour's Ken Macintosh won at the 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2011 elections.
