Wasnt sure what to expect when walking up here; completely ignorant to the local beauty. We visited in autumn and the leaves were changing and the water high, a lovely walk

Frequent this area often with the dogs, ideal for short or long walks, you need to keep an eye on children or dogs in certain areas due to steep banks etc. If you get a sunny day it's stunning.

The lower falls flow right through New Lanark and are very accessible. By following the board walk alongside the Clyde you climb steeply to Stunning Cora Linn and onwards and upwards to Bonnington Linn. A beautiful river walk which takes you past the hydro electric...More

Would highly recommend to anyone! Walked from the Mill, right up to the damn at the top and back down. The falls are absolutely spectacular, loads of water coming down when we were there. Think it’s about 3.5-4 miles round trip on varied terrain from...More

Not recommended for very small children but a lovely walk even in winter. The Falls are spectacular particularly when they are opened twice a year

Great location for an easy graded walk. Wonderful views of the Falls at various locations. Good underfoot conditions but can be slippy in frosty conditions.
