I really like Falls of Clyde but I like peace and quite. The river noise is in the background most of the time. I walked along the Clyde walkway. We were there when the water board was allowing flow along the river which makes it spectacular, but I understand from the hotel staff that it only happens about 5 weekends... More

A very good way to recover from Christmas was a Boxing Day walk from New Lanark , South along the Clyde walk way up to the Falls which were spectacular due to the heavy rainfall meaning that the water and falls were in full flow You must remember that the Clyde is a working river generating Hydro electricity at both...

The Falls of Clyde was on my 'to do' list. I am now working through my list of places to visit. On a cold, clear December day we visited the New Lanark world heritage site and walked the well defined path along the river.

The last time my husband and I went here with the family we took binoculars and the children took great delight in using them, It is a splendid walk to and from the Falls and well worth doing.

Even in winter this provides a lovely walk with views down over the falls Although some of the foot paths require careful walking especially after heavy rain Our luck was in as we walked in a beautiful bright day and although the uphill stretches can take a bit of going for the unfit the views make the climb worth while
