The Falls of Clyde at New Lanark
The fast rush of water. The crack of branches. The call of birds. Fall in love with the 'great outdoors' all over again by visiting the Falls of Clyde at New Lanark. These magnificent waterfalls on the River Clyde have been impressing visitors for centuries - from Wordsworth to Coleridge, and J. M. W. Turner to Sir Walter Scott. The four linn (Scots: waterfalls) compromise of the upper falls of Bonnington Linn, Corra Linn, Dundaff Linn, and the lower falls of Stonebyres Linn. Corra Linn is the highest, with a fall of 84 feet. Bonnington Linn (fall of 30 feet), Corra Linn and Dundaff Linn (fall of 10 feet) are above New Lanark and located within the Falls of Clyde Reserve managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust, a national nature conservation charity. Stonebyres Linn is located several miles downstream from the reserve and New Lanark.
Visitors can enjoy walks within the native woodlands, spotting wildlife and wondering at the flora & fauna all around them. Look our for kingfishers, otters, deer and badgers!
Dundaff Linn can be seen from the far end of New Lanark village. From there it is around a 20-30 minute walk along the river boardwalk until you arrive at Corra Linn. It is then another 20-30 minutes before you arrive at Bonnington Linn. (in total this route is 3 miles)
The Scottish Wildlife Trust have produced this very useful step-by-step guide to the Falls of Clyde walk and the map below.
