Signs of Spring are everywhere around at New Lanark now. A few snowdrops have braved the cold to flower by the path along the Mill Lade, and the first bright yellow daffodils are in bloom in the Roof Garden. The River Clyde has been running high, creating magnificent waterfalls at Cora Linn and Bonnington Linn further upstream. The weather may be improving but it is deceptive. Be prepared for ‘The Teuchit Storm’, an old name for a spell of wet and windy weather that was once thought to occur in late March about the time that the ‘teuchit’ or lapwing starts nesting in the fields upriver!
