Lovey nature walk areas around, because of the walls built around the New Lanark site you can't really get down to the water level to take photos which was a shame. great to walk up the steps and get the high overlook over the falls and surrounding area.

Last time I walked the Falls I was lucky enough for the hydro electric dam to have opened the water gates and let the falls be seen in full flow. Noisy with the water crashing but a great experience. Have now seen it working and dry. Dry is great as you see the rock formations for us budding geologists.

Not too long a walk and lots of beautiful sights along the way. The placards giving the names and info of plants was particularly interesting

We didn't know the falls were right by the New Lanark village where we were staying and it was an absolutely stunning walk, with the falls in full spate like the picture shown. Not to be missed!

Surprisingly quiet on a Saturday morning, just a few dog walkers and joggers. Falls all the way to the top are the most spectacular we've seen, wonderful rushing torrents.

Well worth a walk if you are visiting the Mill. Keep going on the path as there are a number of falls, well worth investigating further.

Really fantastic walk, worth going right to top and across bridge then down to Corra Castle. Views from that side of Clyde even more spectacular.

After visiting New Lanark, make sure you take the walk to Corra Linn along the River Clyde. As well as seeing the source of the power which ran the cotton mills in New Lanark, the natural beauty of the area is captivating. Make sure that you continue up to the final vantage point for a great view of the powerful... More
