Landmarks

Moodiesburn is home to Bedlay Castle and the headquarters of food processing company Devro, and served as the location of psychiatric institution Stoneyetts Hospital during the 20th century.

The suburb's original early 1950s council home builds comprise an area known as "Old Moodiesburn" (though a substantial number of those homes are now privately owned). The opposite end, by Devro headquarters, is composed mostly of private homes built by Christian Salvesen (1970), Tay/Wimpey (1992), Bellway (1995) and Persimmon (2006). A small estate of new council builds was constructed in the midst of the Salvesen area in 2013.

The suburb includes a community centre and library, a miners' welfare club (the Auchengeich Miners Welfare), a multi-denominational school (Glenmanor Primary), a denominational school (St. Michael's Primary), a Church of Scotland parish church, a Roman Catholic church, and an independent evangelical church called New Beginnings. There is also the Silver Larch public house, a Knights of Saint Columba social club and a coffee shop called The Coffee House. Moodiesburn House Hotel – previously the site of the Bedlay Dowager House – was closed in early 2008 and its entire contents put up for auction. Bedlay Cemetery is the local cemetery for Moodiesburn. The nearby Bedlay Castle has stood since the late 16th century.
