it is quite a walk with some stiff hills and some tarmac. A few midges too. Take water and wear good shoes. Beautiful views

Surprisingly we saw this after a while with no rain! We also had to contend with photographers & tripods at the various falls. I loved the informative easy signs giving info on the local plants. Hope to come back on a cloudy day after some rain!

If you seek natural beauty, dramatic waterfalls (Hydropower station permitting), and Social History surrounding the Industrial history of Lanark visit the Falls and Mill Museum - there's a lovely Hotel there too!

This is an amazing walk. The falls are breathtaking and are calming and great to be at one with nature. The walk is beautiful and can be as easy or hard as you want

The falls of Clyde are not to be missed for a good day out with safe walking paths and remember to take a decent camera for taking snapshots of all the lovely waterfalls and also the perigrene falcons which nest and breed there every year. The sights are brilliant all over and scenery can be a spectacle at any time... More

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.

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.
