I was there with my girlfriend and we loved our day out. Plenty of amazing sights and things to look out for. Weather was great on our day there and we had a pack-lunch with us which was great when sittin looking at the falls. Lots of little wildlife around and great to keep an eye on the rock faces... More

New Lanark has a historical and educational meaning. It's great to visit this place. Fall of Clyde is just one part of it.

This scenic walk along the River Clyde has well maintained footpaths and viewing areas. We were entranced to see a heron fishing by one of the falls.

We were lucky enough to visit on a dry day but after there had been a few days of rain and it was spectacular. Will be going back to complete 2 of the other walks on offer soon. Very manageable walk with great pay offs with the views.

You can take a manageable walk from New Lanark Mill along the River Clyde. If the weather has been wet in recent weeks, the falls are even more spectacular!

We liked the easy pathways with some steps but mostly flat. There probably ought to be a few more signs on the route though.

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