Shanklands have given their name to various locations around the world, both natural features such as Shankland Island in Delaware, USA, or Shankland Creek in Alberta, Canada, and man-made structures such as Shankland Road in Glasgow, Scotland, and "Bob Shankland's Occidental Hotel - Superior Accommodation" in Victoria, Australia.

There are still other places which may not bear the Shankland name but which are nevertheless closely associated with Shanklands of the past, in that they are the location of events in which Shanklands played a major part.
