The hydro electric scheme has reduced the flow on the river so it's not as impressive as it could be. Nevertheless it is a beautiful 3 mile walk to the bridge across and start of the hydro scheme. A great combination with looking round the New Lanark Mill

Some great scenery and a fantastic photo spot just above the falls. The board walk along the river front is also a great route - but take decent foot ware if it has been wet

Due to lack of rain (yes in Scotland) the falls were not as spectacular as normal. But the great weather made up for that. We hiked from New lanark towards the falls, then the bridge and towards the falls again but on the other side of the river. We hiked the same way back. It is a clearly marked path... More

We went on a rare, dry Autumn afternoon and were rewarded with leaves changing colour and perfect temperatures for a moderate walk up to the weir and back. Our only problem was that we went in the afternoon and it was dark by the time we got back to the mill. The falls are beautiful and the paths are well-maintained... More

A well set out route with good signage. On the day we walked this, the weather was good and the walking easy. Gentle undulations. Easy for most people.

As it was a Thursday morning when we set out for our walk, there was hardly a soul to see on the path - so quiet and beautiful at the same time.

Arrived in the afternoon and did the walk to see the falls, this took over an hour, and enjoyed it but it left no time to go round the visitor centre, so a quick visit to tea room, with a return the next day a must. The next day we paid to view the interior museums and enjoyed all places... More
