Overview

A lovely circular walk taking in the famous Falls of Clyde.

Starting from the 18c New Lanark mill site we follow the river upstream to the 27metre Corra Linn made famous by William Wordsworth and artist Alexander Nasmyth. Also seeing Bonnington Linn and Dundaff Linn, all three making up the falls of Clyde.

We cross the river following the path to the ruins of Corra Castle and view the falls from the other side. We follow the river upstreamm looking over the mill buildings then cross the riover again to Castlebank Park before returning to New Lanark. 

There will be plenty time to explore and to learn about Robert Owen's social experiment with his mill community.

The path follows board walks and paths with some steep ups and downs along the river. It can be slippy or muddy.
