sorry for being late , didn't realise the falls were on this site. Go when the falls are in full flow to see this spectacular sight, Either drive straight down to Bonnington power station or park at New Lanark and enjoy the walk up through the nature reserve enjoying the wildlife.

Must see attraction if you anywhere near Lanark as part of any visit to New Lanark. My wife and I have been taking the children here for years and now that they have families of their own, it's the grandchildren's turn.

You wouldn't imagine that this section of The Fall Of Clyde were only about a 15 walk from the main high street in Lanark accessed by a lovely walk through Castlebank Park and gardens.

Well worth the visit whatever the season, spring time with the new growth and buds and plenty of water to get the sound of the flowing water, summer to enjoy all the trees in full leaf and lovely views combined with the coolness of the water, autumn with all its lovely colours and not forgetting winter with snow filled views...

lovely walk along the river, with views of the falls. We turned back before the larger falls but next visit I would hope to have my walking shoes on to complete the whole walk

Lovely scenery in all weathers especiallly when the river is in spate . Not ideal for people with walking difficulties and some of the paths can be fairly steep and dangerous when wet.The views down the falls are well worth the hike though.

This is a must! Even if one is incapacitated, the 'Falls' can be seen and heard from nearly all aspects of the site.

Well worth a visit, with walks to suit all ages. If you are there when the Falls are fully open it is really spectacular.

We had a really nice morning out to the Falls of Clyde. They looked stunning in the crisp winter light, surrounded by icicles. One downside was the fact that the path had not been cleared of snow and ice, so was extremely slippery and precarious in places.
