Falls of Clyde Review

Excellent views over the falls at a number of focal points. Well worth a visit. The power of the water is fascinating when it is full

The sight of the falls in full flood is amazing. The noise and the speed of the watter is startling. Great camera view points.

A fantastic walk in the Scottish nature along the river Clyde from the World Heritage Site of New Lanark. Although some describe it as a short walk, it is in fact a 6km walk (everything is relative) and it takes at least 2 hours. From all the falls, the most impressive is Corra Linn offering a fall of 25 metres.... More

The only thing I can add to the previous reviews is that the ease of the walk is relative. I personally found it quite easy and if I had been by myself, that is how I would have described it. However, others in our group found the inclines difficult, and two had to turn back. It is a calm and... More

Excellent walk, very pretty views and best of all no phone signal so my mrs couldn't check Facebook! Haha. Lovely walks and information on wildlife and wildflowers as you walk around. You can see a modern power station. Stunning views off the river, the waterfalls and the pools below them! Would recommend, also didn't cost a penny if your on... More

this is spectacular although I would like to visit again in when the falls have more water. The walk signs say the full walk is about 25mins walk, but we took longer stopping for photos and to admire the views. The paths are well maintained and when you walk along the boarded area there are signs to tell you the... More

We walked along the boardwalk beside the river, enjoyed looking at the falls, and saw a lovely heron patiently fishing ion the river. It did help, of course, that the weather was perfect.
