My review is given on the New Lanark World Heritage Site review as these two attractions really merge into one good visit. Not a trip for people with mobility issues or poor cardiac health.

This is a must visit for the lovely views particularly on a sunny and dry day. The path up to the Falls was easy walking coupled fantastic ambience, beautiful!

The falls of clyde is one great view. Should come and visit if you are in Scotland. If you are looking for a budget trip, this can be the place. £7.50 train from Glasgow and you can enjoy great scenery all the way from the train station up till the falls.

I love waterfalls and this collection was no exception, the walk was a little tough in parts which is to be expected, but beautiful views. We didn't quite go all the way. A great way to spend the afternoon!

The Falls of Clyde are a hidden gem. I have never been to Lanark before, and didn't know what to expect. The buildings are Imposing; the displays informative; the countryside is tranquil, and it is generally a delightful place to visit. Strongly recommend.

Definitely worth the walk from visitor centre in New Lanark. Have been to this spot all seasons of the year, is ever changing and so beautiful in sunshine, mist, snow and rain so get your boots out and just GO!....... My wee sausage dog loves the walk up there too!
