We very much enjoyed our walk through the forest to the falls which were lovely. Carry on your walk though between March and June and you will see the Peregrine falcons, the trust have set up telescopes for anyone to use at a manned station we were the only ones there, such a peaceful lovely place to visit

This a lovely walk which is kept clean and tidy. Some great views and it is not just a fifteen minute walk. Lots of wild life to.

On the days when the power station is shut down and the falls are in full flow they really are a sight worth seeing. There are also many types of wild life with the opportunity to watch peregrine falcons nesting and rearing their chicks.

Visited the falls in early March when the water was very high. The walk from New Lanark is well maintained and clearly signposted. It's not too far but it does take a bit of effort but, it's worth it.

Whilst visiting New Lanark we walked part of the way round the Falls of Clyde. What a great place. The paths are well maintained and safe and the views of the falls are spectacular. Well worth a visit.

The kids love going here, even in the wet weather to jump in the muddy puddles. Brilliant day out with the kids, lucky to have this on our doorstep, They are always exhausted afterwards!!

Well I have been told that the falls are great, but on the day we went it seems the needs of the hydro power station where more important than the tourist. But don't let this put you off. There is lots of winding steep paths and long stairs but still accessible to most and it can be a but muddy... More
