Falls of Clyde and New Lanark

A fantastic short walk along the Clyde from the World Heritage Site of New Lanark, passing waterfalls and a peregrine falcon watching area before the inland return route takes you through fields and woodland. The walk can be extended by following a waymarked additional route on the far side of the river.


Clear path with many steps and lots of short up and down sections. Care should be taken with children on boardwalk section next to river or above cliffs. Suggested return route is muddy but you could return via the outward route.
